Brantholme Bed & Breakfast, Ambleside, Lake District



Latest government guidelines advise our industry will be set to open from the beginning of July 2020. We'd like to thank all our guests who have supported us throughout the Covid-19 lockdown from the 22nd March-3rd July 2020 transferring bookings into new dates.

Once lockdown is lifted and we resume back to business our existing bookings from that day will remain existing and our T's and C's will resume. If however the government requests we stay closed for a longer period, all guests booked within those dates will be contacted. Please be patient. 

Come and enjoy the beautiful unspoilt views we like to share with our guests from Brantholme over the fells of Loughrigg, horseshoe and Wansfell and the summer sunsets on the patio with a glass of something nice in your hand! Book now for the summer/autumn so you wont be dissapointed.

Thank you again for your support and understanding and look forward to seeing you soon, Stay Happy and Healthy, 

Jo and Frank.



Brantholme B&B is no ordinary Ambleside Guest House, we take great pride in the warm welcome and the friendly atmosphere we create. What's more, we're right at the heart of both The Lake District National Park and The Lake District World Heritage Site.

We are Jo and Frank who own and manage the Bed &Breakfast. We love nothing more than welcoming guests to this most beautiful part of Lakeland. We're a dog friendly Bed &breakfast in Ambleside and dogs stay for free, as long as they bring their paying humans!

Brantholme has benefited from substantial refurbishment work over the last few years and we continue to invest in the B&B to ensure each stay is memorable for all the right reasons.
