My husband and I stayed for one night when we were visiting the Old Stamp House restaurant. Our room was small but perfectly formed and couldn't have been better for what we needed! John and Meg were super friendly and we had some great chats with them, and we had to literally tear ourselves away from their beautiful dog!! The breakfast was delicious, lots of options for gluten free (me) and a massive brekkie with all the meat (and pancakes!!) for the husband. Would definitely return! Thank you. You made us want to move back to the Lakes even more!!

We were only in Ambleside for an overnight stay and we chose the best place to stay. Choosing the ‘Natural Hessian King Suite’ (Room 8) was perfect for us. The room was spotless, with space to move about but still cosy. Tea and coffee making (Tassimo pods) facilities are supplied. Having a sofa to sit on instead of lying on the bed, when reading or watching TV, certainly helps! The bathroom (shower, toilet and basin) was very clean with complementary toiletries all present and correct. Megan and John are perfect hosts, taking our luggage to our room, which was still being deep-cleaned, while we took a trip round a very rainy Ambleside. Although we ate out well in the evening, we were ready for breakfast. My wife had the Full English and I opted for bacon, toast and mushrooms, all cooked to order with juice and tea or coffee to complete. I would highly recommend Compston House for either a short or longer-term stay and thanks to Megan and John for a welcoming experience.…
Beautiful B and B in central Ambleside, the owners were really friendly and welcoming and the property was beautifully maintained and decorated. We had a really comfortable room on the top floor, small but everything we needed when using as a base for looking round the area etc. Free parking pass for the car park round the corner and easy to walk around the area. The breakfast choices were really good and everything was freshly cooked to order with much more choice than a lot of places. Would definitely recommend and stay here if visiting again.
I was only in Ambleside overnight but was made to feel extremely welcome by my hosts Megan & John. Compston House was excellent, clean, well appointed and guarded extremely well by the resident German Shepherd Mia. The room was spotless and the immaculate shower was well appreciated first thing in the morning. It is only a short walk from the town centre and all the local facilities, bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend Compston House and would like to return with my wife in the future.
