A luxury bed and breakfast in the Lake District has been listed among the top B&Bs in the world.

Riverside B&B, in Ambleside, was voted tenth in the 2020 Tripadvisor Travellers Choice Awards for the world’s best B&B.

The establishment was recognised for its enhanced guest experience as part of the award programme developed by Tripadvisor.

Last year owners Richard and Diney Standen launched the Riverside Rewards scheme, which offer guests a simple way of unlocking a variety of booking discounts, complimentary gifts and money off local attractions.

Richard said: “We were truly surprised to be named in the top 10 and we must thank all of our guests which make running Riverside such a pleasure as well as all of their support and encouragement during these challenging times for the hospitality industry."

The Travellers Choice Awards are intended to celebrate travellers' favourite hotels, restaurants and B&B’s from across the globe, with the winners being determined by both the quantity and quality of millions of reviews and ratings.
