This B&B is outstanding! The hosts are accommodating and go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast is amazing (my partner and I would recommend the banana and white chocolate chip pancakes) and our room was spotless. Their gorgeous dog, Mia, was an added bonus. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Stayed at Compston House for 2 nights with my boyfriend and we had a fantastic stay. They did everything to accommodate us from providing cereal pre official breakfast times so we could head off early for a walk to the variety of breakfast options - meat and vegetarian- catering to all needs. Very friendly and welcoming hosts and I would definitely recommend anyone staying in Ambleside to stay here. We will definitely be coming back here in the future. Thank you very much !!
