Clean, stylishly decorated, great breakfast, fantastic shower, wonderful hosts, fantastic location and good parking facilities. What more can I say!
Nothing at all!
Personal finishing touches throughout. Extremely welcoming and cosy.
bigger pillows you can sink your head in to would be lovely
A beautiful B&B ideally situated in Ambleside. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about surrounding area offering advice on where to go and what to see. Breakfast was delicious. Room was small but enough room for a short stay. Overall a great B&B and would definitely recommend to friends.
Amanda the owner was very attentive, Breakfasts were lovely Room 8 was fantastic Location was perfect
Nothing to dislike
An attractive property set in an ideal location on the edge of Ambleside. Quaint charm mixes superbly with a modern, stylish interior. Lovely touches, very tastefully decorated and spotless clean. An outstanding scenic mountain view from the room. The accommodation was very comfortable and had a superb bath plus a double walk in shower. Amanda and staff (and Bob,a great character) were very welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Tea and cakes were a nice extra touch. Breakfast very tasty and plentiful. In all, good value for money.
I cannot find fault or pinpoint anything I didn't like during our stay.
Near town, great breakfast, friendly hosts
Noisy road, tiny room, small shower, bad nights sleep
Friendly staff and wonderfully presented. Very welcome cake and pot of tea upon arrival, lovely touch. Room was immaculate and cosy. Breakfast was delicious and Amanda was very helpful.
Wonderful hosts. Breakfast was fantastic. Beautifully clean. Room was excellent. Charm and character. Very tasteful. I will stay there again and have recommended it to friends.
Loved it all
Good location just out of town centre on main road but not too noisy. Parking was fine. Nice breakfasts, especially the home made bread/toast. Puzzles on breakfast table got the brain working.
Clean and very well appointed. Kind and attentive owners. .
In our room WiFi was borderline, but that is the only criticism
Lovely room, large bathroom with big bath & double shower and a balcony. Small touches including a bottle of water, nice mugs, comfy chairs.
Bed was too hard. Room was very warm despite heating being off overnight so window was open & people were shouting and screaming at 2am on both nights.
Friendly staff. Very good breakfast.
A warm welcome from Amanda and Coffee and cake served when we settled. Comfortable room and an excellent breakfast every morning. We will definitely be back for more
SUPERB attention to detail. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a beautifully furnished and decorated room. We went away to celebrate a birthday and to let plasterers finish work at home. Now I have to decorate ours like Haven Cottage. Stunning.
warm friendly atmosphere, room very clean and inviting, breakfast superb felt quite at home
Very close to Ambleside for dining etc Very welcoming hosts with tea and cake! Great breakfast. Off road parking. Lovely open view at back of house.
On busy road, not shown in photos. I found bed quite uncomfortable (too soft) but my partner had no problem. Room not available before 4:00pm and need to vacate by 10:30am so not much time in room.
The decor, the location, the price, the room, the bed, the lounge, the music, the host and especially the breakfast. Everything was fantastic!
Everything was just great!!. Super welcome , friendly and would go again. Location was excellent!!.
Was no negative thing to comment on.
We received a very warm welcome, were assisted to move our baggage into our room and then given tea and cake in the late afternoon sunshine out on the patio. The cottage is lovely and really is just a short and level walk from the town centre. In the thirty some years that I have known my wife, the most complimentary she has ever been about anywhere we have ever stayed, has been to say that it was alright, but she wouldn't want to go there again. Within an hour of being at Haven Cottage she said "I like this, we can come here again!"
Everything was excellent. Lovely owners, room was immaculate ! Great location, two minute walk from the centre of Ambleside. Lovely breakfast. Big thumbs up !
The only downside for me was the road next to the B&B , it is quite busy.
Amanda and Robert could not do enough for their guests. Breakfast with home made brown toast to die for.
Rooms a little small
Very clean, comfortable and welcoming. The location was suberb just a short walk to the main high street and the breakfast was first class, especially the home made bread. Would highly recommend The Haven.
Everything was lovely.
Haven Cottage was a lovely last minute find. The whole place is beautifully decorated & clean. The owners are friendly & helpful. The location is only a 5 minute walk from the centre of Ambleside and 20/30 minutes from the lake walking at a leisurely pace. We would certainly stay here again.
brilliant location on the edge of Ambleside, great B&B very stylish rooms with superb views,super hosts, lovely breakfasts. Would not hesitate to stay again .
The location of Haven cottage is excellent for restaurants, shopping and area site seeing. The cleanliness of the room, the breakfast, good wifi in room. Tea and coffee and biscuits in the room. Parking no problem and free.
No full length mirror in our room. Room a bit too small. A little traffic noise at night if windows left open. We were in room 1, the screw holding the closet door knob needs to be shortened.
