What makes a great bed and breakfast in Ambleside?

8 February 2017

Staying at a bed and breakfast in Ambleside is the perfect escape for when you just need somewhere to relax or a wonderful change of scenery.

Ambleside is considered one of the ‘Jewels of the Lake District’ and you can find a variety of bed and breakfasts in Ambleside – but how do you know who to stay with?

Here are the top things we think make a great B&B.

Personalised attention

Hotels can be super busy and full of staff that are polite but not personal. At a bed and breakfast, things are a little more informal. But at a really great B&B, you get to know your host and become acquainted on a personal level. We will go that extra mile to make sure you are looked after. We also consider ourselves experts on Ambleside and the surrounding area and can give you secret local tips that you may not get from a Google search or flyer!

Delicious food

A bed and breakfast will need to make sure the food they are serving is to a high standard because that’s one of the reasons you have chosen them, for a great meal to start the day with! Whether you choose our Full English or Vegetarian option, Ann and Andy’s delicious and generously sized cooked breakfasts are not to be missed. All our food is locally sourced, including free range eggs, meaning you will get an authentic breakfast made from Ambleside produce!

Unique rooms

Our house was built in the 1800’s and embraces a perfect mix of Victorian architecture while being clean and modern on the inside. Featuring five double bedrooms and one single bedroom, all rooms come complete with en-suite bathrooms and shower, Wi-Fi, complimentary toiletries as well as tea and coffee making facilities to help make your stay the most comfortable. Why not take a look for yourself? You can view our beautiful rooms on our website.


A great B&B should be centrally located in an area with a rich cultural offering, stunning landscape and plenty of spirit. The location of our bed and breakfast in Ambleside is perfect. We are proudly situated in the heart of the beautiful Lakeland village which is less than a 5-minute walk from the surrounding shops, pubs and restaurants! Not only this, it is the perfect location to discover Cumbria, as Ambleside is nestled in between Grasmere and Windermere, with other towns and villages easily accessible by car and public transport. We are also the perfect bed and breakfast in Ambleside to explore from when you want to get involved with local events.
