Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, immaculate rooms, excellent breakfast and with friendly faces each day this hidden gem deserves more stars. With very spacious rooms and large gardens this place has the feel of a country manor surrounded by idyllic views and quiet farmlands

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights, we both throughly enjoyed our visit. As a young couple, in our 20s we can't recommend Crow How enough. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent and the rooms were clean and well finished. We will certainly be returning in the future.

We had a very relaxing stay at Crow How. John and his family made a feel welcome and we were looked after well especially at breakfast time. I like the idea of the jigsaw puzzle, boardgames and books in the lounge. The garden is large with natural areas, woodland and flowerbeds. There are azaleas, rhododendrons and roses. We found foxgloves,...

We have been coming to Crow How for 10 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and the choice and quality of breakfast superb - thank you to our lovely waitress for her sense of humour. It is a family run guest house and everyone couldn't be more helpful with advice on local amenities plus...

Room very big, clean & great view. Location superb for getting to Lakes & plenty of options for the evenings. Breakfast had plenty of choices. Any issues were always dealt with & never a problem for getting advise.

This was a true gem for us. The setting is beautiful. The rooms were wonderful (we were in rooms 7 and 9). A five minute walk from Ambleside makes this a great location to leave the car parked to either explore the town or walk the countryside. I cannot recommend this enought.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells, this grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country Guest House in the early 1930's. Set in our own 2 acre gardens Crow How has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District. ... more   less
