SMALLWOOD HOUSE Town centre   

Anthony & Christine have been welcoming new guests and old friends to Smallwood House for 22 years. Our guests regularly comment on our award winning breakfasts, thanks to our menu range and use of quality, fresh local produce. We are happy to cater for vegetarian, gluten free or other dietary needs. Our on-going commitment to cleanliness and decoration means our rooms are fresh and comfortable, and our bathrooms offer under-floor heating and attractive suites. We’re just a 2 minute walk from the town centre, with a variety of shops, restaurants and bars to enjoy, and Ambleside is an ideal location for exploring the fells or the wider Lake District. If you don’t want to completely get away from it all we offer complimentary Wifi throughout the hotel, as well as the use of a nearby spa and swimming pool.

The Ambleside Salutation is the ideal place to work out, dine out and simply chill out. Here is the ideal place for that Lakeland break, family holiday, conference, Christmas party, family get together or delicious dining out, simply easy to get here but hard to leave.
