Everything We Needed
Our room was very well appointed, had great views and was very clean. Breakfast was exceptional with lots of homemade produce ( the potatoe cakes were lovely) The owners were not overbearing but were there to chat advise and support when required. Would love to stay again.

Lovely Place To Stay
Stayed here for 2 nights plus dog. Well equipped, comfortable & clean room (standard double) even had nice biscuits :-)
Jane & Chris were very welcoming and would do anything to ensure our stay was enjoyable.
Breakfast was delicious & the homemade granola was the best we\'ve had.
Location of B&B was perfect for us & would highly recommend to anyone considering staying in Ambleside.

We received a very warm welcome from Chris & Jane. The accommodation was to a very high standard. The cold and hot breakfast selection was outstanding and cooked to perfection. A great town centre location with easy access to surrounding places of interest.

Our Stay At Brantfell House.
Had a lovely stay at brantfell house again! It\'s our 3rd time we\'ve stayed here & it\'s our favourite b&b in Ambleside! Chris & Jayne are lovely people & cater to your every need! The rooms are really clean & very comfortable & have everything you need! The breakfast is marvellous! Highly recommend!

Fantastic Welcoming Hosts!
We came to Brantfell house for a long weekend away.
Jane and Chris are fantastic hosts, so warm and welcoming. They will do anything for you (even lend you a coat!)
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless and handwash and shower gel from a local company was lovely.
The B&B is in a lovely location overlooking the park and mini golf course. No road noise in the evening, very quiet, had a great sleep.
The breakfast is fantastic, loads of options and jane will cook anything you want and as much as you want. The produce is all excellent quality and from the local area.
Short walk to the lake and town centre, loads of lovely shops and places to eat. I would highly recommend the apple pie factory!
We will definitely be coming back to brantfell house.
Thank you for a lovely stay!

Arrived about 5.30, able to park at the back of the house, which made unpacking easy. Our room was comfortable and spacious. We particularly liked the mini lounge area. Very convenient location for pubs and restaurants. Took bus down to Bowness from stop just round the corner. Both breakfasts were spot on. The full English veggie breakfast set me up well for an 8 mile hike. We are already planning a return trip for the next equinox

Comfy Room - Brilliant Breakfasts!
We\'d not been to Ambleside before, and there was a lot of choice, but I think we selected well. Jane and her husband at Brantfell looked after us splendidly; our room at the top of the house, which had, I\'m sure, been recently revamped (including a lovely walk-in shower) had great views (albeit the four flights of stairs were a bit hard on the old thigh muscles!) and was very comfortable. Brantfell is just on the south side of the town centre, so the perfect location to seek out one of the many eating options but also within a minute or so\'s walk of open countryside. I\'ve saved the best \'til last - the breakfasts! They were brilliant; the variety was amazing (smoked haddock, eggs benedict and pancakes as well as any combination of the traditional \'English\') and the ample portions meant we were well set up for the day! The honesty bar was a useful facility, too.

What lovely hosts!! Nothing was too much trouble, Jane and Chris really went out of their way to ensure we had a fabulous stay. The breakfasts were delicious and knowledge of the area including walks and restaurants very helpful. The room had everything required, was to a high standard and extremely clean. All in all a fantastic stay, can\'t wait to return.
Mrs. Caroline Pounder

Number One Choice
This is my fourth time at Brantfell which is my number one choice of places to stay in Ambleside. Top quality accommodation which is always clean and tidy, breakfast from 8:00 if you ask (important if you want to get out onto the fells early) and a great choice of tasty breakfast options. Good sized rooms with excellent up to date facilities and decor. Hosts Jane and Chris are very friendly and a delight to stay with. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable stay.
Mr. Philip Hutchins

We only had one night at Brantfell House but our hosts made us feel very welcome and gave an abundance of help and advice. We felt at home immediately we arrived. Excellent room and breakfast. Highly recommended.
Mr. Nicholas Brown
- 25th Aug, 2014
An extremely warm welcome.
First class breakfasts.
Nothing too much trouble. Could have had your dinner off the bathroom floor - so clean. The large bedroom was amazing for a b and b. One very small criticism - the
signage outside was so cool the place was hard to find.
But we quickly forgave them.
Thank you for a great stay

Response from Accommodation
It was delightful to meet you all and, thank you for your kind comments. We have taken note re the signage and this is being altered to make it more noticeable. We are always grateful for constructive comments.
2 Night Stay
Booked the last room last minute. Beds very comfy & believe me I'm very fussy. Thought there might be more traffic noise as we faced the road but it was fine with the secondary glazing. Woke up when it got light as need black out curtains though. Breakfast good with lots of choice and very nice home made granola. Shame we got the 2 days of rain after a month of sun! Oh well.

Response from Accommodation
Thank you for your kind comments.It was a shame you did not mention, when you were here, that you did not like being wakened by the daylight. We could have done something about it at the time. We have taken note, however, and something will be made to block the light coming in through the window in question.
Outstanding Bed and Breakfast accommodation. From the moment we were met to our exit we could not fail to be impressed. Exceptionally clean and tidy room with excellent decor and facilities. Breakfast choice very impressive and cooked to order. Will certainly be re-visiting even if we need to travel off route in the future. Excellent hosts in every way.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We always say that everything is 2 way. i.e it is a priviledge to meet delightful people which, makes our job so much nicer and easier.
We had a spacious room on the second floor, with great views out towards the Fairfield Horseshoe. Breakfasts were substantial and there was extensive choice. Chris and Jane are great hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Breakfasts where excpetional, as big or as small as you like, nothing seemed a problem. great location with on site parking. would certainly recommend to friends and would stay again! thanks for a great stay, brilliant sunny weather always helps too! :-)

Hi, I don't normally write reviews but I thought I would on this occasion. What a great little B&B this is. Ideal location and the owners couldn't be more helpful and nothing is a problem for them. They even have an honesty bar which I didn't use but I just thought this was a great little touch. After a fabulous nights sleep in the small double room which is more than suitable I was hungry and my goodness what a breakfast I was served with. Absolutely unreal. Would not hesitate at all to stay here again. Thankyou
Mr. Ant Whitton
- 24th Mar, 2014
Absolutely perfect for us and the breakfast was excellent. Stronger Wi-Fi using devolo plugs would be the only improvement.
Mr. Adam Doughty
- 10th Mar, 2014
Immediately on arrival we were made to feel welcome. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was excellent with numerous choice and everything is fresh and cooked to order. Location is perfect if you want to explore Ambleside & not far if you want to walk to the marina to get the ferry over to Bowness for the day. Chris and Jane are excellent hosts ... Will defiantly be returning ..

Our builder recommended Brantfell House, because he had visited this B&B over many years, in 2008/9 he was involved in carrying out a major re-furb of all rooms, this was to an extremley high standard, we wer'nt disappointed on our stay, we were in room 3, although next time i would like to stay in No6 Top floor, having never ventured up this far of the country,so didnt know what to expect, we loved the area on arrival even though it was raining, Brentfell is in an ideal spot to explore Ambleside & surrounding areas, room was modern, well planned layout, clean, plenty of space for clothes etc,Ensuite was lovley too, the breakfast was fantastic & Jane made us feel very wellcome, giving us lots of local info etc, when we return in 2014, we will stay at Brantfell House.
Thank you & Well done Chris & Jane for providing a well maintained clean & lovley B&B
Mr. Steven Pease
- 16th Sep, 2013
This is a great little B&B. Exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. Great location. Good choice of breakfast - cereals through to cooked breakfast of your choice. fresh juice,tea,coffee etc..My girlfriend is not a fan of cooked English breakfast - but was won over with this breakfast. Very filling, no need to eat until evening time which is good when walking in the hills. Parking is very limited, but Chris did sort it out for us. My girlfriend did find the room a little on the small side.We would both highly recommend this great little B&B again and would look at booking again on the next visit to ambleside
Mr. Steven Forbes
- 16th Sep, 2013
Highly recommended breakfast was great, beds were really comfortable and Jane and Chris give a really warm welcome. We had our two dogs with us who were also well catered for with a sausage each for breakfast every morning. Well placed for easy access to Ambleside and all the attractions around.
Mrs. Beverly Tucker-unitt
- 1st Sep, 2013
This is a great little B & B. It was our first experience of a B & B and believe we will not find one as good as this when we come to look again.
Both of the owners aim to please and will do anything to help! The breakfasts are amazing and an endless choice of things to have.
We would definately stay here again should we visit the area again.
Mrs. Helen Foggo
- 5th Aug, 2013
This is the second time we have stayed with Chris and Jane at Brantfell,yet again we,ve had a brilliant stay.

This was our second time staying at Brantfell House. Its location in Ambleside makes it a great base for exploring the Lakes and there are plenty of places to choose from to enjoy an evening meal nearby. I would recommend 'The Priest Hole' - amazing food. The rooms are ample in size and clean and nicely furnished. The breakfast choice is very good and everything tastes delicious. Overall, this is a lovely place to stay in the Lake District and we hope to return in the future.
