About the hotel

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.

Best B & B we have ever stayed in

Everything about this place was brilliant, lovely room, excellent breakfast, friendly welcoming host and a setting to die for.

Walks straight from the garden, peaceful but a short stroll from Ambleside for restaurants, pubs etc.
