We stayed at the Lakes after a hectic week in a Warner hotel. It was just what we needed to wind down and Eugine and Claire were excelant hosts.
Clare was very friendly to my son and special change of a chair with two pads for him to sit in right height
bath room is too small. Towel in bath room may has detergent residue.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful throughout our whole stay. The accommodation is clean and well presented with good facilities.
Everything. Eugene and Clare made you feel very welcome and and their knowledge of the area and its amenities was excellent. Lovely décor in bedrooms and everything clean and well looked after.
From start to end of our stay, simply superb.
The hosts Eugene and Claire realy make this place home from home. Nothing is too much trouble. Execellent breakfast and top service. Very well situated in Ambleside and all amenities a short walk.
