Compston House B & B 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) provide high quality hospitality, a comfortable stay and fantastic breakfasts making your stay all the more enjoyable!

Compston House has undergone a major refurbishment and has now had seven of its nine rooms renovated to a very high standard, leaving only two to follow. All of our new rooms have been very well received from our previous guests and we look forward to completing the house in the coming years. Further information relating to our ongoing renovations is available on our renovations page.
