    • Bed and Breakfast Perfection.

      We have been visiting Ambleside for many years, and have stayed in many B and B/Guesthouses during that time. We originally stayed at Compston under the previous ownership when it was the 'American Themed' establishment, run by Sue and Jerry from the US who were always friendly. Whilst it was nice enough - and the breakfasts amazing - the place itself was a little 'tired' and in need of updating and improvement throughout. So along come John and Meg (and Mia!) and they have completely transformed the accommodation (barring a couple of rooms) and put their own stamp on it. Not only have the rooms been updated and improved, but the place now feels different and up to date. The rooms all have their own flavour, with modern colours and furniture, and finished and appointed to the highest standards. They have clearly put a lot of thought (and money and hard work!) into this transformation, and it shows. Beds are super-comfy, and rooms are warm and welcoming - Just what you want after a hard days walking in the Lakes. The breakfasts are simply gorgeous - They have sensibly retained a slight American nod with the 'Full American' breakfast option, with the best fluffy pancakes I have ever had in my life (and that includes several trips to the US too). However if that isn't your thing they have everything from Full English to Vegetarian options, to Salmon and eggs - Something for everybody. Nothing is too much trouble for John and Meg, and they really care about your comfort and relaxation: Sometimes its the ethos and attitude of your hosts that makes all the difference, and we feel so at home here that it clearly reflects everything they do to make it special. And then there's the boss...Mia, the most gorgeous German Shepherd who is the star of the show (sorry Meg/John, but you know its true). She is the perfect welcome when you wake up, or come back from your days exertions, and something of a local celebrity in Ambleside as she sits and watches the world go by from the hall. Suffice to say you'll fall in love with her just as we have. Overall I cannot fault Compston on any level, and simply wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ambleside - and there is plenty of choice - because nothing compares to the comfort and welcome you get when you come to Compston. Thanks for another amazing stay!

      My husband and I stayed 2 nights, Megan and John so welcoming nothing too much trouble. Very comfortable and clean, excellent very extensive breakfast menu. Megan's homemade blueberry muffins on Sunday were delicious. Compston House is very well situated for all local amenities and for visiting the local area, we would definitely recommend.

      What a wonderful B and B. Rooms very comfortable and clean with everything you could wish for. The breakfast was wonderful and extensive. I particularly loved the American pancakes which I had with fresh fruit and lashings of maple syrup. The couple who run this are delightful and hard working and I wish them every success. They deserve it.

    • Excellent B&B

      Reviewed 11 August 2019

      We have visited this B&B several times and always receive a warm welcome from John, Megan and Mia the dog. We return to this accommodation regularly because we know we will be well looked after, the rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are excellent with a wide choice of food available. John and Megan ensure that all guests are well catered for and nothing is too much trouble. Several of the rooms have been modernised to a high standard with plans to update the remaining rooms in the near future The accommodation is situated in the centre of Ambleside and within a few minutes walk of many restaurants several pubs and a cinema. We highly recommend Compston House to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Ambleside and hope to return in the near future.
