Perfect property. Great location in Ambleside so easy walk to restaurants and shops. Ambleside is a great location for hikes in the Lake District - loads of walks within a half hour drive. Jim and Monique are fabulous hosts - suggestions on what to do and parking / bus routes to get there. Breakfast was divine - fresh fruit, full English cooked to perfection. The ordering process is really good , so breakfast is also served really quickly when you arrive. Perfect guesthouse and will definitely go back!
