Foxghyll Country House B&B

Ambleside

Located in the heart of the Lake District and just 5 minutes' drive from Ambleside, Foxghyll Country House B&B offers free WiFi access and free on-site parking. Set within 3 acres of private gardens, this large country house dates back to the 1600s and has direct access to Loughrigg Fell.

Foxghyll Country House B&B is by the banks of the River Rothay. Guests can explore the tranquil Lake District, which is ideal for hiking and scenic cycle rides. It is also ideal for fishing. I was looking for a place that was near Ambelside without being in it, since the point of going to the Lakes District is to get away from crowds. Foxghyll met this - it's on a narrow back road with little traffic, but in 15 minutes you can walk into Ambelside for dinner via a bucolic route that's mostly along this road and park paths. The host provides torches to help you get back if it gets dark while you are in town. Assuming better cooperation from the weather than we had, you can also walk out the back door and straight up onto the fells, which I was itching do. The room and the bath are big and comfortable. There was a sofa in our room that was really comfortable for evening reading. For a tall person the breakfast tables are a little uncomfortable on the legs, but the breakfast itself was a proper cooked to order English breakfast and quite good. The host is very helpful with local information and let us borrow detailed area maps for driving and hiking.
