We enjoyed two very comfortable nights in this charming cottage. The owner and staff were attentive and friendly, breakfasts were beautifully prepared and presented, bedroom and en suite wee clean and comfortable, and throughout little touches and trinkets added a homely ambience. Would love to stay agaon

Lovely rooms, lovely breakfast and lovely host and near to some fine places to eat and the splendours of the lake and the excellent facilities of Ambleside. We enjoyed our stay although it was all too short. Nonethe less we discovered an excellent Thai restaurant and a comfortable cinema and managed a shopping trip and a day at Blackwell.

Fantastic B&B in a great location. Couldn't fault it. Everything was perfect from the warm, friendly welcome, to the luxurious room with great views to the super breakfast. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Haven Cottage 4/5th November. The accommodation was excellent, we stayed in room 8 which had been finished really well with a fabulous big bathroom and comfortable bedroom area. Attention to detail was good with plenty of storage and well thought out furniture, the little things which really make a difference. The B&B itself...

Very good location with off road parking and within easy walking distance of Ambleside centre. Small but comfortable bedrooms with everything you need. Guest lounge and outdoor seating area for relaxation. Excellent breakfast cooked to order. Our 2nd visit and it won't be our last!

Spent two nights in this absolutly gorgeous B&B in a fantastic location. The staff were fantastic and accommodated two fussy eaters for breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here espcially in room eight.

Im not one for writing review but this time it has to be done. This was our second time at Haven Cottage. We stayed exactly the same time last year (my birthday). The B&B is just first class. Couldn't ask for anything else from a B&B and i'm sure we'll be going back there...maybe next year. The owners are so...

We very much enjoyed our stay at Haven Cottage, we were made to feel welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our hearty breakfasts. It is well positioned to explore a wide area of the The Lake District, be that on foot, by bus or by car. Also it is only short stroll into Ambleside for evening meals or entertainment.
