The owner Richard welcomed us both helping us in with our luggage and showing us to our room. He helpfully suggested local parking as the car park was full. Our room was warm and clean and surprisingly quiet as its on the main Lake Road into the centre. Lovely breakfast, great coffee and a sausage for our dog Marvin! Handy...

Stayed here for a couple of nights in the week. Then owner Richard was excellent, nothing too much trouble for him. Stayed in the Arabian room, which was lovely, especially the spa bath. The Brekfast was ample with choice to suit all tastes. Location was great with just a ten minute walk into the town centre. Would recommend to anyone...

Had a lovely weekend away at the lakes. This was made even better by our B&B. We stayed in a themed Arabian nights room. This was very spacious and well maintained. Breakfast was very good and set you up for the day. Was also in a great location just 2mins walk outside of Ambleside. Will visit àgain.

The Full English/Walkers breakfast was superb, a great way to start a busy day. Wanslea was ideally perfectly placed on the edge of Ambleside, far enough from the centre to be quiet but...

Stayed for just one night on an impromptu visit to Windermere. We were made most welcome on arrival and our room was spacious, warm and comfortable. The ensuite was also spotless and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast which set us up for our day out walking. We wished we were staying for a bit longer but definately...
