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

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

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in this B & B. Owners very friendly and welcoming.Breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent. We liked our own table with room number on. Our small double room was comfortable, bright and clean. The free parking was very much appreciated once you found it (through a Pay and Display car park). Would have liked... More
