We just returned after spending a very relaxed weekend at the Ferndale. We were met by Ann who is a lovely and friendly lady and looked after us during our stay there. We stayed in one of the annex rooms just above the private car park which was lovely and cosy and extremely clean and adequate for our needs. The... More

Returned here for first time since December 2012. It's still every bit as good as last time, but there's something else that I wish to add. On this trip we had a rather nasty accident on Helvellyn, which resulted in us being air lifted off the mountain and me spending 5 nights in hospital, in Carlisle. On the evening of... More

My boyfriend and I booked a nights stay at this hotel last minute. We wanted somewhere that offered the beauty of the Lakes and a few nice pubs! Ambleside didn't disappoint and the Ferndale was the perfect location. Thanks :-)

We have stayed many times at Ferndale Lodge and I would not hesitate to go again. We stayed for three days between Christmas and New Year and the atmosphere in the bed and breakfast was very friendly. Breakfast options are excellent and vegetarians are well catered for. We have stayed in several of the rooms in Ferndale Lodge and no... More

Rooms are very clean with great views up the Langdales and surrounding mountains. The B&B is based in the heart of Ambleside so it was minutes... More

However, the staff were really lovely, the place spotless and the breakfast really nice and plentiful. The shower room was also brand new and really modern, even though also extremely... More
