I stayed here with my boyfriend in November; we booked last minute and chose this place from the god reviews it had received. I could not have chosen a better B&B. The owner was absolutely lovely and greeted us on arrival, and helped us back our car into the space (as it is quite tight). The room we were given... More

We spent a night here in November on our way up to Scotland with friends. The owner was very friendly and greeted us on arrival. My friends have a baby and we have a dog none of which was a problem staying here. The owner was very friendly towards children and pets and even showed us pictures of his dog... More

Great location. Lovely and cosy b & b. Simon was a great host and very welcoming. He was great with our two dogs and the breakfast was very good too. We would recommend to anyone. We will be back next year. Thanks again x

We paid a reasonable price for a good all round stay at the Kent Guest House. The location is excellent and surprisingly quiet. The breakfast was probably the best we have had for sometime in a hotel. Simon was helpful, chatty and entertaining and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Stopped here with a friend on a walking tour of the Lakes, the nicest B n B on the trip! Thanks to Joe for looking after us and for setting us up with a brilliant English fry up for the following day!

We have just returned from a superb 3 night stay at Kent House. Lovely clean bedrooms and comfy beds. The manager could not have been more helpful and assisted in finding parking. The location is great, short walk to the town centre. The breakfast is also excellent! Can't wait to return in February.

Had the pleasure of staying here with my girlfriend and her dog over the first weekend in October. Was greeted by Joe, a very nice man who runs the hotel by himself and does a great job all things considered. The room was reasonably sized and came with all the standard amenities. The bathroom was adequately appointed and was clean... More

I stayed at the Kent House last weekend with friends. Ambleside was very busy and this was the only guest house we could book with the two dogs that we had. It had good reviews except for the parking outside. There are only two spaces which are very difficult to get to and the owner parks his car in one... More
