Why Haven Cottage

Our Rooms

Each of our 2 bedrooms and 2 suites is individually decorated and designed in an eclectic style whilst retaining an intimate, homely feel. Each room has its own modern ensuite with power shower, large fluffy bath towels and luxury toiletries. Check out the room tab for room specific information.

Guest Areas

We have a cosy lounge with a log burner for the colder days and an external terrace with table and chairs looking towards Loughrigg, for the warmer ones.


Parking can be tricky in Ambleside, and we are lucky to have an onsite parking space for each of the rooms. We are also one of the few B & B’s to have an electric car recharging point.


We are an easy three minute stroll to the centre of Ambleside with its various shops, restaurants and pubs and probably 15 minutes or so walk to Lake Windermere. Sitting between Wansfell and Loughrigg we are lucky enough to have some amazing views from our doorstep.


Served in our dining room and guest lounge with plenty of choice including fruit, yoghurt, cereals, the obligatory full English, our own home-made toast, tea, coffee, juice. All freshly cooked to order using best quality locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.


We have recently upgraded our broadband to a fibre-based system and changed the routers to improve coverage around the house. This has greatly improved matters although occasionally we can be subject to the vagaries of the Cumbrian internet!

Drying room and secure bike storage

Naturally - we are in the Lakes!

Children, Babies, Dogs, Stags & Hens

We are an adult only B&B, so we are unable to have children, babies, or pets to stay.

It is also a no for Stag and Hen parties.


With just 4 bedrooms you can be assured of a warm welcome, local knowledge, and friendly, personal service throughout your stay at Haven Cottage.

Lake District Foundation

We are pleased to support the Lake District Foundation who fund a variety of conservation, environmental and cultural projects in the Lake District and commit to donate £1 from every direct booking towards their fund raising efforts.
