We have renovated the house that resembles closely the layout of the house in the 1930s and have reverted to a Country House Bed & breakfast establishment set in 2 acres.
A 4 Star Silver graded traditional Country House Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District. Set peacefully away from the road, next to a working farm we are half a mile from Ambleside and ten minutes drive from Grasmere.
This grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country House in the early 1930’s. Today it has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District, providing bed & breakfast accommodation near Ambleside.
Where We’re Located
There are few better sited country houses in the area, located in two acres of private gardens, surrounded by the magnificent Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg Fell, with views out towards the fields of Rydal Valley to the front of the house but only 10 minutes walk away from Ambleside with its shops, cafes and restaurants.
We are in a peaceful and secluded position, surrounded by mountains and fells in the heart of the Lake District with Grasmere being only 10 minutes drive away, with Keswick a further 10 minutes away. Windermere, Kendal, Coniston and Hawkshead are also easily accessed within half an hour. Waterhead is only 30 minutes walk away.
