Many people like to enjoy their Lake District holiday in the surroundings of a full-service hotel. On the other hand many prefer simpler B&B. Ambleside has a good supply of guesthouses providing excellent bed and breakfast. Lake District hospitality can be enjoyed both in the centre of the town close to shops, restaurants and other facilities and also in the surrounding countryside.
So if you want convenient accommodation in Ambleside in a smaller establishment, often family-owned and operated, without the “bells and whistles” of a big hotel but with a well furnished room and excellent cooking, take a look at the many options for B & B in the area. It might even be less expensive!
We now have a page devoted specifically to Ambleside B & B guest houses.
Dog Friendly Bed and Breakfast
Lake District B&B visitors have a wide range of different requirements and we must not forget the demand for dog friendly accommodation. Lake District hoteliers on average appear to do better in this area than those in many other parts of the country, probably due to the popularity of dog-accompanied walking holidays. However, a smaller proportion of bed and breakfast guest house owners appear to accept dogs. Starting with our new Ambleside B&B page we have therefore started to add to our listings a doggie label to indicate pet friendliness. It is, however, important to check this before confirming your booking so that you are not disappointed. Some properties may have only a limited number of rooms suitable for pets.
