"A luxurious break in beautiful, peaceful surroundings."
My friend and I had a large, light, airy room with a view of the front garden and direct access to the back garden and the fell. The bathroom was enormous with a spa bath and all the comfort we could wish for and to crown it all there was a second toilet and shower just next door in case of need. Read less
Likes:
The room was checked and serviced daily but unobtrusively. The house felt like a home and was full of beautiful things - pictures, ornaments etc. There were puzzles to do at breakfast!

"First class home from home"
My wife and I have stayed at Foxghyll many times over the last 21 years and it is now run by the son of the original proprietors. Foxghyll is a small country house with lots of character and history (once owned by Thomas de Quincey) and is set in beautifully kept gardens. It is positioned within a short country walk (complete with stream) of Ambleside yet feels reassuringly removed from the town. We have always enjoyed details to visitor comfort at Foxghyll and this continues. Read less
Likes:
Everything is done so well from the great breakfasts to the general eye to guest comfort. The proprietor is very friendly and has drawn on the long family experience to make the guest feel comfortable
Dislikes:
No.

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.
