This is a great guesthouse. The location is wonderful, a 20 minute walk on a quiet, tree lined back road to Ambleside with its selection of restaurants. I also believe there is an interesting off road walk to Grasmere. The hosts were friendly but unfussy and, when they heard we were doing a race, got porridge in specially for us. The rooms are huge and it felt like staying in a small stately home - something that is not reflected in the price which is similar to much more average B&Bs in the area. As other reviewers have said, there was no shower in the (huge) bathroom but though this worried me initally, it was a great excuse to have a long indulgant bath.
