About this Bed and Breakfast

The Howes B&B in Ambleside is a charming and cosy pet friendly guesthouse in the central Lake District. Offering outstanding value for money for guests with dogs, the house is situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac and so benefits from little traffic and no road-noise, yet is within easy reach of the town centre. Our dog-friendly Ambleside guest house has a modern style and is beautifully appointed throughout its interior, complimented by an attractive terraced garden with excellent views and extensive lawned areas where pets can play. With ample free private parking on-site you can happily leave the car behind as you explore the superb amenities of bustling Ambleside, take a walk with your dog on one of the many surrounding trails and visit nearby attractions such as the well-known Stock Ghyll park, is a delightful wooded ravine topped by a beautiful waterfall.

The Howes Bed and Breakfast is a perfect base for dog walkers and tourers. After a long day in the outdoors, Guests and their four legged friends can relax in the comfortable, peaceful surroundings of the house and gardens before retiring to one of our three spacious and well-furnished bedrooms. There's a choice of two king-size double rooms and an adaptable twin/superking with zip & link beds. Each of the bedrooms features its own en-suite facilities with a shower and toilet, and all are located on the ground floor meaning they are easily accessible for guests with limited mobility. All of our bedrooms have been decorated and furnished to a high standard, with comfortable beds, TVs and hot drinks facilities as well as tables and chairs where you can enjoy and intimate breakfast. Outside of the house there is ample room to park your vehicle off the road and to the rear is a steep-terraced garden with lawned and patio areas great for pets and for enjoying an alfresco drink or special breakfast whilst admiring the view.
