I will have no hesitation recommending this B&B. This has to be one of the best we have stayed at. The hosts are warm and friendly. A welcome cup of tea and biscuits were appreciated on arrival. The room and shower were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with local produce being used. The location is only a short walk...

Good to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Our breakfast is cooked to order using local produce so, even if we say so, it is good. Hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

Red Bank is not your average B&B, it is outstanding and well deserving of its five star rating. The room was spacious and luxurious, with lots of lovely little touches. George and Val very friendly. Good choice for breakfast, freshly cooked to order and set us up for a days walking. Close enough to stroll into Ambleside for something to...

Thank you for your kind remarks. Our own off road parking for our guest is, as you say, a bonus in Ambleside. All the shops, bars and restaurants a short level walk from Red Bank so there is no need to use the car. Waterhead is a 15 minute walk from Red Bank so the steamers and launches are within...

Thanks for your kind comments and when the sun shines there is no better place than Ambleside or the Lake District. The views are wonderful and the short work to the many bars and restaurants in Ambleside means you do not have to use your car. Hope to see you again in the near future.

We spent four nights at this comfortable B&B right in the heart of Ambleside. Val and George were very helpful and accommodating, and the Super King size bed warm and comfortable.

Just had our second visit to Red Bank. As before, rooms comfortable, breakfast excellent and hosts welcoming and friendly. It's the little extras that make it so good. Not much else to say except we will return in the future
