Stayed for 2 nights 5/7 August 16 with our 2 dogs. Had a lovely time, the rooms are very spacious, plenty of room for the dogs to walk around. Mike was very welcoming nothing was too much trouble. Excellent breakfast served on a table in your room in the morning meaning the dogs weren't left out. It is a short...

We had a lovely stay at the Howes this September. Mike is a lovely host and makes you feel very welcome. I was sorry not to meet the other guests as you have breakfast in your room. Mike is an excellent breakfast cook even though for me , being a vegetarian the menu is a bit restricted. If you are...

Stayed on a Friday and Saturday night in July (sorry about the late review!). Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome if we had been staying with friends; from the moment we arrived (later than planned) Mike was the perfect host, nothing too much trouble and the use of his local knowledge invaluable. Clean accommodation, excellent breakfast and perfectly...

We stayed two nights with our dog and we had a lovely stay. The room was very clean. The owners were very friendly, polite and happy to help. The serving of breakfast in your bedroom is a nice touch. The location is perfect as you are just a short walk from the town but away enough for it to be...

This is a great B&B that allows dogs. Lovely B and B that is away from the busy streets of Ambleside near the waterfalls. Great hosts, super, comfy rooms and fantastic breakfasts. We like the fact breakfast is served in your room and you can still be in your pjs in the privacy of your room. This makes it easier...

Just returned home after spending a lovely weekend at the Howes B&B with my husband and our dog. Read the reviews before we left and had to laugh about the one stating that the B&B was up a hill. A hill in Ambleside who would have thought it. LOL. Lots of positives, lovely room with really comfortable beds. Great breakfasts....
