Really it was a lovely stay with the only thing we were just not sure about was that we found the bed a bit hard. I guess this is a personal choice

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 with a further 40 acres of woodland - all 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.


Foxghyll operates only 3 luxurious and unique en-suite bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with king size double beds. While the 'Front Room' & 'Spa Room' offer both 1x king size bed + 1x single bed - meaning they can also be used as twin bedded rooms. All rooms have been luxuriously renovated, with brand new bathrooms, all with bath-tubs and showers.
