What people are saying about Brantholme Guest House

Superb - Rating 5/5

Gorgeous place run by Jo and Frank who can’t do enough for you! Lovely clean rooms, really tasty fresh breakfasts and brilliant location to explore Ambleside without having to drive. Jo and Frank welcomed us and our dog with open arms and really helped to make our stay special. Jo provided coffee and biscuits on our arrival which was a lovely touch. They provided us with lots of recommendations on places to visit, local walks and restaurants. Brilliant place to take your dog, they leave towels at the back door to wipe off muddy paws. As dogs aren’t allowed in the dining room they brought our breakfast up to our room for us which was lovely. The room was spacious and had the added bonus of a bath and a shower, lovely to have a long hot soak after a day of hiking and exploring. The back door has night time access using your room key so no need to worry about getting back for a certain time. Would 100% recommend and we will be back. Stunning place and really lovely people!

location, Stunning Property and Perfect Hosts- Rating 5/5

Lovely to meet Frank & Jo, very welcoming and really enjoyed the stay. Great location 2 minute walk from the town centre, parking on site and a lovely view out back to the mountains. We didn't wake up in time for the breakfast first day ( too many beers ), 2nd morning down for breakfast we were well looked after and lovely food. Would stay again, thinking of booking for next year . Thanks Frank & Jo :)

BIRTHDAY - Rating 5/5

My husband and I booked for my birthday initially but my Husband could not get the time off work and we had taken a special offer. Thankfully the owners were happy for us to change our dates. Owners were really friendly and welcoming. This place was perfect, spotlessly clean throughout. Choices for breakfast with cereal, full cooked and kippers. My god my Hubby went on and on about how great the kippers were!!! Room was lovely with chairs to sit and look at the views. Lovely location, not far from park as we had dogs and close to the shops which also housed dog friendly pubs. The views from the hotel were outstanding. Only thing for me that could improve would be thicker bathroom towels as they were a bit thin so not brilliant at drying you off, but this is a minor grumble on…Read moreDate of stay:October 2019

Beautiful room and warm friendly welcomeStayed here with partner and pooch. Owners were very friendly and helpful and couldn't believe that they had just taken it over a few weeks ago as they were so professional and everything was run so smoothly. We had a lovely room with superb views. Location of Branyholme is second to non as Ambleside town centre is only a 5 min walk away. Breakfast was amazing. Superb choice and very well cooked. Will definitely be coming back here again. Thank you for the warm welcome.Read moreDate of stay:September 2019

Lovely weekend - Rating 5/5

Just returned from delightful weekend at Brantholme. Very large clean room with lovely uninterrupted views. Position excellent - round the corner from shops and restaurants yet quiet and secluded position with walks from the front door without recourse to a car. Friendly helpful hosts have recently taken over the establishment. The breakfasts are personalised with a wide range of options. Highly recommended. (source TripAdvisor)

Wonderful hosts in Ambleside - Rating 5/5

We loved our stay in Brantholme B&B in Ambleside. Hosts, Ian and Helen, warmly welcomed us and made our stay feel like home. The room was spacious and resting in the two armchairs by the window overlooking the fell after our walks through the magnificent Lakes District were just what was needed to restore the soul...and the feet.
