Checking for availability



    Haven Cottage is a wonderful Guest House close to the centre of Ambleside. It provides high quality B&B accommodation with a reputation for some the highest levels of customer service in the Lakes, and was recently awarded '2019 Best B&B & Guest House in Cumbria' by Cumbria Tourism.

    Built from traditional Lakeland stone Haven Cottage still retains its traditional charm but has been extensively modernised to combine traditional features such as log-burners with contemporary and beautifully decorated en-suite bedrooms. Accommodation includes both Double bedrooms and also large spacious Luxury Suites.

    All rooms benefit from free Unlimited wi-fi, Tea & Coffee making facilities and TV / DVD. To the rear of the cottage is a south-facing patio area with stunning views of Loughrigg.

    All guests also get free car parking in the private car park in front of the B&B.

    Haven Cottage has a deserved reputation for high quality breakfasts. Using local ingredients such as locally cured bacon and Cumberland sausages, as well as Free range eggs from Windermere, guests can choose from a traditional home-cooked Cumbrian breakfast or a home-made Vegetarian alternative. Coffee is from Red Bank Roasters in Grasmere and Tea from Farrer's of Kendal. Fresh fruit, Yoghurts and Cereals are also available and all bread is home-baked on the premises. There are a variety of daily specials made available throughout the week and Haven Cottage has deservedly won a Visit England 'Breakfast Award' for the quality of the food it serves.

    The Owners spend time each Breakfast to provide guests with an up-to-date weather forecast and offer free advice and route planning to help make the most of the spectacular Lake District area. A number of scenic walking routes start from Haven Cottage, and cycle storage is provided if guests wish to bring their bicycle. The market town of Keswick is a 20-minute drive away.
