Having stayed at the Yewfield on several occasions over the years and enjoyed their standards we were happy to stumble on Ambleside Lodge while looking for a last minute short break. No disappointments here! Similar in many ways to the Yewfield, standards ,food ,staff all very good. The air of relaxation pervades in the same way. The association with Zeffirelli's... More

Just stayed for 2 nights at the Ambleside Lodge, its our second visit there and we will definately be staying again. Although it is not your Boutique Style Hotel, it is clean, welcoming and very warm and comfortable. Breakfast is one of the best we have had, lots of variety and cooked to perfection. Will be going back soon.

Paul the owner ensured our stay exceeded all our expectations in terms of accomodation and local restaurant options. Our large bedroom ( room 12 ) was very well furnished with fabulous views of the town and countryside. The breakfast was cooked to order and served in a pleasant dining room with an excellent choice of starters. No stupid DIY toasters... More

Firstly let me say that I was not looking forward to this short break. The previous experience we had, plus the negative reports, really had me worried, but I can honestly say we had a fabulous time. Our room (14) is a large room, it has a king size 4 poster bed, with lovely white crisp, clean bed linen. Everything... More

Stayed here at the back end of this summer for a weekend away. We were walked to our room on arrival. The room itself was surprisingly spacious with nice large windows, letting plenty of natural light. The bathroom was nice and big too. The beds were very comfy, both me and my partner slept straight through. In the morning we... More
