Fabulous location, fantastic staff . Would definitely recommend. We will be making this place our choice when we return to Windermere/Ambleside in the future. Dog friendly and our dogs loved it . Turning left out of the grounds Windermere is approximately 5 minutes drive & turning right out of the grounds Ambleside is less than 5 minutes drive .

We did not need to ask for anything extra or complain about anything. At breakfast, we were served by an elderly lady who I...
