Just one word describes this B&B: Excellent. Owners Allie and Chris are wonderful, warm people and are running their business with style and elegance. The rooms are very comfortable, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The B&B is located on the edge of the village centre (2 min walk, Ambleside is really not that big) and has on-site parking; something that...

Our first time in the lakes knowing little about walking. We were given advice, help, maps and directions along with fantastic food, excellent clean rooms and a friendly approach. We definitely be staying at Haven Cottage again on our next visit to the lakes!

Home away from home. Beautiful cottage and surrounds. Hosts Chris and Allie really go the extra mile to make their guests feel at home. Very sad to leave. Rooms immaculate and breakfasts five star. We will be back soon!
