          Fantastic place to stay Ambleside. Dianne and Allan were great hosts and they certainly made us feel welcome. The rooms were very cosy and clean. The breakfast was delicious. Ideal base for a Lake District trip. Hugely recommended.

          It's a typical Ambleside B&B but with superb attentive service. The hosts Alan and Diane were well-organized to give us guests what we need - and then they offered a nice surprise: home made cake to welcome us back in the evening. Wonderful!
