About the hotel

As seen on Rory McGrath's ''The Lakes'' television program, it's all about breakfast! New Yorkers Sue and Jerry offer you the choice of a full American breakfast (with Sue's fresh, hot, homemade pancakes), a full English breakfast (of course), a New York style omelette overstuffed with cheese, or eggy bread as you like it--sweet or savory! With sizzling home cured bacon and handmade Cumberland sausages from our local butcher, and creamy local free range eggs. . .

just yummy. And, if you go home hungry, it's your own fault! Compston House is a refreshingly contemporary B&B with an American style. Each bedroom is uniquely inspired--choose Florida, Hawaii, Texas, Montana, Maine, Pennsylvania, Arizona, New York, or Wyoming!. Strictly non-smoking. Free parking and free Wi-fi too. Child-free. Sorry, we cannot accommodate children under age 16 or pets. .

One Of The Best B&Bs In Ambleside

I was able to get a late deal here a couple of days before the bank holiday weekend.

The owners of the property were lovely to myself and fiance. Upon arrival we were given lots of useful information about the local area such as where to park, where to eat and what walks to do. The room was very comfortable, we stayed in the Arizona room which had views of both Loughrigg Fell and Wansfell. The WiFi worked extremely well which isn't always the case in the Lake District. I would highly recommend the breakfast also, they offer a great American breakfast which comes with pancakes and syrup in addition to sausage, bacon & egg whilst they also catered for vegetarians which pleased my fiance who doesn't eat red meat.

I'd definitely stay here again and will recommend to friends and family.

The guest house was central for Ambleside.Hosts were excellent friendly and very attentive.Food and cleanliness also excellent.The room,bed and en-suite were a bit small unfortunately.
