Rydal Lodge Country House Bed and Breakfast

015394 33208

A historic house set in extensive grounds

Come and stay at beautiful, historic Rydal Lodge Country House Bed and Breakfast (formerly Rydal Lodge Hotel) - parts of which were formerly a coaching inn where, who knows, Coleridge and Wordsworth may have supped a pint together. It is set in extensive gardens with the River Rothay flowing through the grounds. Riverside seating provides an ideal setting in which to relax in the stunning scenery and maybe share a bottle of wine from our licenced honesty bar. In the evenings you can unwind in our cosy Snug or Library.

Rydal Lodge is in the quiet hamlet of Rydal - close enough to stroll into the bustling town of Ambleside but far enough away to escape from the crowds. If you don’t want to go far for an evening meal you can pop across the road to The Badger Bar – a traditional Inn.

The location of Rydal Lodge is a walker’s paradise so once you’ve parked your car in our free car park there will be no need to use it again for the duration of your stay. A 5 minute walk away is scenic Rydal Water amidst spectacular mountain scenery – why not take a dip or spend a day fishing? A 20 minute walk away are the atmospheric Rydal Caves. The Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg are on our doorstep and the slopes of Helvellyn are just a 5 minute bus ride away.

Wordsworth’s Home – Rydal Mount – is well worth a visit and is only a 3 minute stroll from our door.

We have one dog friendly room - please enquire for details.

Children over the age of 8 are welcome.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rydal Lodge.
