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

Me and my partner had a 3 night stay at Ferndale and have nothing but praise for this lovely b&b. The en-suit room was a generous size and immaculately presented. The breakfast was as good as I've had and I include numerous hotels in this. Being very picky parking could be an issue for some as you were parked in... More

Good location, 2 minutes from the quaint village of Ambleside, friendly welcome, great breakfast & comfortable rooms. Request for easy access room for elderly parents accommodated for which we were very grateful. A top spot. Recommend.

We had a very enjoyable stay over the Easter weekend. We were 3 couples in all. Our room was very comfortable, spacious, bright and clean. The breakfast was excellent and well cooked. We liked the fact that the tables had our room numbers on them. Would definitely recommend. We ate in several different pubs/restaurants in the evenings all close by.
