"A Warm Friendly experience in beautiful surroundings"
Most enjoyable . Having stayed in a number of accomodations in the Lake district in recent years this was a little gem of a find and would probably come close to being our favourite . Only disappointment was that we only stayed 1 night would have loved to stay longer Read less
Likes:
Set in beautiful quiet surroundings yet is very close to Ambleside and Grasmere and their respective amenities . The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel relaxed and at home .
Dislikes:
Although the breakfast was well presented my only criticism was that the food was lukewarm and I was expecting Cumberland sausage , no substitutes accepted

FoxGhyll Country House B&B, located 5 mins from Ambleside, on the historic literary road of Under Loughrigg. Originally built in the 1600’s in the style of a typical old Lakeland farmhouse, Foxghyll has undergone a diverse and colourful history. Having once had the famous writer, author and literary figure Thomas De Quincy as a tenant for a short time.

The house was later occupied by the Hon. WE. Forster. MP for the borough of Bradford, and the first minister of education. It was during this time in the 1870’s that extensive additions were added in the decorative & imaginative style of an affluent Regency country house.

Offering guests a peaceful and tranquil setting, yet all within easy access to Ambleside and all the amenities the village has to offer. In a 10-15 minute walk, or 5 minute drive from Ambleside town centre, you will find FoxGhyll Country House B&B. By the banks of the River Rothay. Set amongst a formally laid, 3-acre garden and with direct access onto Loughrigg Fell itself.

During the Spring and Summer months, Foxghyll’s private and secluded garden comes to life with a vast and varied array of plant and shrub life. The small stream that runs through the grounds, provides tranquility and composure to the residence. With excellent views of the Lakeland fells, guests can gain easy access to Loughrigg and the Fells and valleys beyond, from the garden itself. From land adjoining the River Rothay, Foxghyll can also boast private fishing. Foxghyll’s driveway also offers easy & accessible private parking.
