Compston House is a traditional 1890's merchant house built of Lakeland stone. Throughout the years, it has been lovingly cared for and provided many guests with memorable visits of Ambleside. The property is ideally situated in the heart of Ambleside, close to all shops, bars and restaurants. New owners Megan and John have recently taken over the property and will continue to provide the same high quality hospitality and fantastic breakfasts making your stay all the more enjoyable!

John uses authentic American recipes for his homemade pancakes, creamy scrambled eggs and eggy bread. All our ingredients are fresh and locally sourced ensuring your breakfast is what it should be - the best meal of the day! Whether you fancy a full English, a full American or something lighter, you will be sure to come away ready to start your day. Dont forget Meg's Blueberry muffins if you are here on a Sunday, they've proven to be quite popular!

We offer a selection of board games and books for your use during your stay, in addition to complimentary access to White Platts Recreation Ground found directly opposite the house. They boast a variety of activities such as pitch and putt, mini golf and 3 brand new tennis courts for you to enjoy.

As many of our recent guests know, we have a new addition to the family here at Compston House...our new puppy Mia! Feel free to ask to see her when you arrive, she loves the attention!!

We look forward to welcoming you to this amazing part of the country and providing you with the service, hospitality and breakfast you deserve!

Hope to you see you soon!

Meg and John
