“Look no further!”

My wife and I have just spent a very pleasant two nights at Compston House. We were greeted by Sue and Jerry and were immediately on first name terms. Sue showed us to our room which was spotlessly clean, and equipped with tea and coffee facilities, lovely toiletries, and even a box of tissues. For a bit of fun every room has an American theme. We were in the Arizona room which was excellent, with lovely white bedding and big white fluffy towels. There was even sweets in a dish at the top of the stairs for us to help ourselves.

Breakfasts are amazing, everything is cooked to order by Sue and it's just perfect. The American breakfast is awesome! Jerry waits on the tables and nothing is any trouble. You can have any combination you like and it quite honestly fills you up for the day! The breakfasts are served in the dining room which is beautifully decorated, and the tables are set perfectly including real napkins with napkin rings.

Sue and Jerry are to be congratulated on their B&B, and they are brilliant in what they do. We would recommend it to anyone. Can't wait to go back!


“Lakeland Hospitality at its best.”

Stayed at Compston House since 2004. Sue and Jerry are perfect hosts, the breakfasts excellent, local produce and freshly cooked. Love the pancakes. The standard of the rooms is very high, spotlessly clean, and decorated to a high standard. Compston House is in a prime location, handy for all Ambleside has to offer, the hub of the Lakes. Both of us always look forward to our next visit. Wet or dry, it's always sunny at Compston House American-style B&B.


“A Home from Home.”

We recently returned from a four night stay at Compston House American-style B&B. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it. Sue and Jerry made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The breakfasts are delicious---there is a great choice of fresh, locally sourced food.

We were very happy with our room. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed in it. Ambleside was a great choice of place to stay has a relaxed feel and some great restaurants.
