Rydal Lodge Country House is a listed building with parts dating from the 16th century. It is an historic house situated in extensive gardens by Rydal Water with the River Rothay flowing through the grounds. Riverside seating in the summer provides an ideal setting in which to relax in the stunning scenery.
Situated conveniently close to Ambleside in the South Lakes, Rydal village is a conservation area and within easy reach of Grasmere, Keswick, The Langdales, Bowness, Hawkshead, Windermere and Ullswater - it is a great base for exploring The Lake District.
We have a licensed bar so in the evenings you can relax in our cosy Snug with a drink or, if you're hungry, you can pop across the road to the Badger Bar where you can have a bite to eat and, if you're lucky, see some badgers feeding in their car park.
Come and stay and leave your car in our free car park for the duration. There are some fabulous walks right from the door: gentle walks around Rydal Water and Grasmere or a one mile scenic stroll into Ambleside. For the more adventurous The Fairfield Horseshoe, Loughrigg and Helvellyn are right on our doorstep.
Secure parking (lock up garage) for bikes and motorbikes.
Children over the age of 8 are welcome.
We have one dog friendly room - please phone for details.
