Ambleside Lodge, Rothay Road

Ambleside, 

Cumbria, 


LA22 0EJ,  England
Our Lake District bed and breakfast, Ambleside Lodge, was originally built circa 1875 as a Gentleman‘s residence, and was named “Rothay Holme“ after the River Rothay which flows from Grasmere into Lake Windermere. Owning most of the land surrounding the church, both sides of the river and down to the lake, it commanded a respectable and enviable position in the community.

"Left without staying the night"
On arrival,and entering the room, my 69 old wife found it hard breath and suffered a asthma attack,
brought on by the dusty and dirty condition of the room.
I requested another room but was told there were none available, I then requested a refund so we could
book into another hotel,but was refused.
At this point my wife was finding it hard to breath and to save here any more distress we left the hotel without staying. Read less

Our Lake District bed and breakfast, Ambleside Lodge, was originally built circa 1875 as a Gentleman‘s residence, and was named “Rothay Holme“ after the River Rothay which flows from Grasmere into Lake Windermere. Owning most of the land surrounding the church, both sides of the river and down to the lake, it commanded a respectable and enviable position in the community.

In 1912 it was then bought by the local council, and used primarily as council offices until 1978. The field was used for the local sheep auctions on the last Friday of every month, and one of the ground floor rooms was occupied by the local dentist.

The third owner of the property was the National trust, whom for 14 years used the building as their offices, and then finally after being empty for two years Rothay Holme was returned to private ownership. Beautifully restored, and tastefully decorated, it reopened its doors to provide quality and elegant Lake District accommodation to those visiting the National Park.

Featuring some exceptional examples of original oak panelling, dating back to 1654, and brought here in 1875 from local churches, the skills and craftsmanship that were used, can now be shared by all, in the different rooms throughout the building. Most of the walls are between 2 and 3 feet thick and are primarily constructed from Lakeland stone.

Facilities too are good and new for this year are DVD players. Bathrooms are all pleasant, with several having been effectively upgraded and some also have spa baths. The standard of housekeeping and maintenance throughout are to a generally good standard.

We also provide a dog sitting service at the very reasonable rate of £10 per day. Please take note that only specific rooms at the property are dog friendly and this is clearly stated in the descriptions of our rooms.
