An historic house set in extensive grounds
Update: We are closed now until at least the 17th May due to Government Covid regulations. To help with the uncertainty over possible future restrictions any bookings made through this website for dates from 17th May will qualify for free cancellation up to one day before the check in date. See the Covid Safeguards at Rydal Lodge Page for our safeguarding measures.
Rydal Lodge Country House Bed and Breakfast (formerly Rydal Lodge Hotel) is a listed building with parts dating back to the 16th Century. It is set 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.
We have a licenced bar so in the evenings you can relax in our cosy Snug with a drink. If you are 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 from our property - gentle walks around Rydal Water and Grasmere or a 1 1/2 mile scenic stroll into Ambleside. For the more adventurous The Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg are on our doorstep and the slopes of Helvellyn are just a 5 minute bus ride away.
We have one dog friendly room - please enquire for details.
Children over the age of 8 are welcome.
