Bed & Breakfast 


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. Owners Megan and John (and their dog Mia) took the helm in June 2017 providing high quality hospitality, a comfortable stay and fantastic breakfasts making your stay all the more enjoyable!

We offer a selection of board games and books in our guest lounge for your enjoyment 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 tennis courts for you to enjoy (seasonal restrictions apply).
Our young German Shepherd Mia has stolen the hearts of many! She loves meeting our valued guests, and they love meeting her! She is extremely well behaved and very friendly!

We look forward to welcoming you to Compston House and providing you with great service, excellent hospitality and fantastic breakfasts!
