Excellent value for money inc no surcharge for dogs, perfect position for walking into Ambleside without a car, fantastic hosts with a scrumptious breakfast. Mum and daughters never can do enough for you and always on hand to chat and give tips on where... More

We stayed at the Rothay Garth for 3 nights in February. The room was comfortable and warm and had everything we needed. We had one of the dog friendly rooms which suited us perfectly. The location is great and although by quite a busy road we did not notice excess noise - especially at night when it was very peaceful.... More

Our room was lovely and we had a nice view of the mountains behind us. There was nothing to fault, for a weekend getaway its just... More
