We stayed at the Ferndale Lodge in October. The room given to us was away from the main building at the back of the property. It was nice and quiet. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was lovely. Great location. Just think that the rooms were average for the price paid. This did not stop us from getting out... More

We stayed at Ferndale Lodge in October and were very disappointed, considering all the favourable reviews it had received on this site. The heating in the rooms did not come on until 7pm so it was really cold when you came in from a walk and wanted a hot shower before going out to eat.. We complained but nothing happened.... More

Having stayed here before and had a lovely room we expected the same quality of room. However our 'small room' was tiny attic room with a very small window that we struggled to see out of due to it being high up. Had Rob the owner been available we would have asked to be moved. Still great location, friendly staff... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend, and we really enjoyed our stay. It is very close to both lake Windermere and the centre of the town, so just a few minutes walk to the shops, or to the restaurants in the evening. The breakfasts were very good, the food was fresh and we didn't have to wait... More

Very central in Ambleside, minutes away both from the city centre and from the lake. Accomodation is very basic. Small rooms. No lift. Room service left much to be desired. English breakfast was good and fresh. It is pre-ordered and served on the table. Unfortunately the service was very slow and to say the least one would have expected it... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our motorcycle road trip to Scotland, we were warmly welcomed even though we were quite wet on arrival, the private car park at the rear of the property is on quite a steep hill, but we were allowed to put the harleys near the back door where it wad flatter, the rooms are...

My husband and I stayed at Ferndale Lodge for two nights in June. Firstly - Ambleside is a lovely town and great place to base yourself for exploring the Lake District. We only wish we spent more time here, the area is amazing. Ferndale Lodge was a very nice B&B - perhaps a little dated and basic, but perfectly nice... More

Ferndale Lodge is just 2 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. We were given an ensuite room in the cottage at the back and enjoyed the quiet peaceful atmosphere with views of the church steeple and mountains. Our car was parked outside our door. Each morning we walked up the driveway to the front door and breakfast room. Wifi... More
