"Idylic setting in a fantastic country house"
Set along a country lane, we found this amazing house that turned out to be our B&B. Paul gave us a very warm welcome and were shown to our spa room with door to very pretty garden where we had a glass of wine with fantastic views. Ambleside just 20 mins walk, with boat trips across the lake to the vintage motor museum. We would recommend this B&B to anyone coming to the Lakes. Read less

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only one fault, the place smelt of cigarette smoke which was fairly unpleasant and would be the reason not to stay again. It was the downstairs reception area and landing, not a good advert. Our room was absolutely fine though. Read less

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.
