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.

Short break at Compston House
Just returned from a few days away in the lake district and stayed at Compston house American style B&B in Ambleside and would like to recommend this B&B.
Both Jerry and Sue were attentive both on arrival and throughout our visit. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of English, American (with pancakes) Omlette or Eggy bread plus an assortment of cereal , fruit yoghurt etc. The B&B was clean and tidy and we stayed in the Texas room which was of a good size with a king size bed. The location is ideal for walks in the lake district and Ambleside is good for restaurants and general shops. Sue and Jerry provided a car park pass for use during our stay which included certain car parks in Ambleside, Grassmere and Bowness. One minor point for this room is that the newly decorated on suite is a bit compact and the shower pressure a little low but it is on suite which is a plus for a B&B. Give it a try, we weren't disappointed. The fact that 9 out of 10 rooms were booked shows its popularity. Also if you do take a trip out to Keswick then can I also recommend Woodstones restautrant - fabulous for meat and freshly made Pizzas in a woodstone oven.
What a wonderful place
The hotel owners were lovely they made us feel welcome and at ease they gave us helpful advice on where to eat and where all the interesting places are and nothing was too much trouble we couldn't have asked for nicer people.
