We had a fantastic time in this wonderful characterful guest house. Our room was immaculate, the bathroom big and recently refurbished and our bed was incredibly comfortable. The gardens alone are worth visiting ; we loved hearing the bird song in the morning. The location is superb; set back from the lovely town of Ambleside, it was great to be...

We had a wonderful 2 nights stay in a lovely country retreat. Just outside of Ambleside the accommodation and welcome we received from start to finish just added en extra warmth to this charming bed and breakfast.

Great location, feels very 'away from it all', while at the same time giving easy access to local amenities. House was peaceful and relaxing, owners friendly and obliging. Spotlessly clean, room was nicely decorated with an excellent bathroom. Lovely comfortable lounge with a real fire, and a good DVD library too. Highly recommended.

Such a lovely warm welcome from John. Crow Howe is a real find - comfy rooms, warm welcoming lounge area with a real fire, great breakfast and to top it off the weather was kind allowing us the rare treat of snow covered fells and bright blue skies. Already booked again for Feb.

We stayed in room 1 and what a excellent room it was, the bathroom was 5*!! Friendly and welcoming staff! The room was so spacious and clean. The breakfast was delicious. It's a 10-15 min walk into the town, when it's dark we would recommend a torch. We had no negatives at all about the stay and will definitely be...
