Just had the most amazingly fab weekend at Randy Pike. Everything about this place is awesome...the breakfast, the room, the bath (what a bath!), the four legged friends (too cute!), the setting and last but by no means least the hosts - what a genuinely lovely family. This is up there as one of the best places we have stayed... More

A peaceful retreat, a beautiful haven, the perfect place to spend a few days of R&R. The vallelay suite was a vibrant mix of funky decor, the most comfy bed I have ever slept in and a bathroom with a freestanding bath which went perfectly with a glass of prosecco. The breakfast was served direct to our suite at a... More

We stayed for two nights in November 2013 (just updating TA with several hotel stays) and cannot wait to return!! It is really hard to describe this place - not a hotel and doesn't feel like a B&B - it feels so homely, luxurious, secluded and yet nearby to get to many places. Andy and Chrissy have got it spot...

Andy, Chrissy & Marley the terrier are warm & welcome hosts and all the crew friendly and accommodating. The rooms are elegant but a fabulous quirky and a lovely base to explore the area. The breakfast is as delish as everyone says. Would thoroughly recommend Randy Pike.

My partner and I stayed here for one night as part of a mini break in the Lakes to celebrate finishing university. We stayed in the Vallelay suite and loved everything about it including the friendly welcome at check in, freshly baked muffin waiting in our room and well stocked complimentary mini bar. The roll top bath was amazing and... More

We stayed for one night at the beautiful boutique hotel the Randy Pike. We had booked into the Vallelay Suite and had a wonderful experience. A great deal of thought has obviously been put into making each visit a stay to remember by the owners Chrissy & Andy. We were welcomed to the hotel by Chrissy and shown to our... More

After a week back home, we are still on a high after what we would describe as the best hotel in the UK we have stayed in. The owners Andy and Chris have got exactly the right balance of warm, friendly, luxury and seclusion to deliver a beautiful and romantic stay. We felt extremely spoilt the breakfasts were delicious and... More

I would agree with all the reviews but I have one warning. After our stay at Randy Pike and after a delicious breakfast, we were having tea in the gardens outside our room. At around 10am a car pulled up and two women got out. Moments later they came over and asked if they could start cleaning our room. I... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Randy Pike is our home on the outskirts of Ambleside in the heart of the English Lake District. Once a Gentleman’s Hunting lodge on the Wray castle Estate we have just recently returned it to its former glory... Randy Pike is Lakeland's sexiest new bed and breakfast, and yet B and B is it truly in its very simplest form, the suites are large and luxurious that have kept the character and feeling of that iconic neo-gothic era and yet marry perfectly with the all the modern facilities you'd expect with Vi-sprung beds, cloaked in the very best frette line and plump crisp pillows, there's a flat screen tv, i-pod dock, tea and fresh coffee. The Showers are the size of a small country, warm, funky and sexy... there's truly nothing out there like them. Andy and Chrissy Hill ... more   less
