Great 2 night stay at this immaculate B&B in Ambleside. Warm welcome from George and Lindsey. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended and would certainly return when visiting The Lakes again. Plenty to do and see in this beautiful area

We only stayed for 2 nights (wish it could have been longer!) but were very impressed with this lovely B & B. George and Lindsay were the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. The rooms were spotless; tea and coffee making facilities were provided and replenished daily, and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Would...

Our first time on visiting the Lake District couldn't be better. George and Lindsay at the Hillsdale B&B really were great hosts. From luxury bathroom products to tea/coffee/choc and biscuits in the room to the freshly cooked breakfast in the morning we couldn't have asked for more. George was great at giving directions to beautiful drives and walks as well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming Visit Britain 4*Bed and Breakfast property, with free off-road parking for each room, is conveniently situated in Ambleside town centre in the very heart of the English Lake District, Wainwright's Walking Country. The beautiful waters of Windermere, Rydal and Grasmere are within easy walking distance as are the historic homes of Wordsworth, Ruskin and Beatrix Potter. Each room has been individually styled - as the B&B has been created from an original Lakeland Stone townhouse, so typical of Ambleside, no room is the same shape or size, but we hope that each one is as comfortable, attractive and pleasing as the next! All rooms have either a double or king sized bed, newly refurbished en-suite shower room and flat screen TV. Hospitality trays, hairdryers, wine glasses and corkscrew come as standard. Free wi-fi is available. Prices include a selection of breakfast choices. ... more   less
