The Hillsdale is a modern, comfortable & cosy place to stay while visiting the beautiful surroundings, the rooms were excellently decorated and comfortable. George & Lindsay were the perfect hosts, warm & welcoming and always there to help and made it feel... More

Stayed at Hillsdale the previous year and we loved it so much we went back! George and Lindsey were lovely and so was the food. My girlfriend would point out that the rooms were fantastic but I'll stick with the food. Can't wait to go back this year. Great location and close to many wonderful walks. Absolutely recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This charming Visit Britain 4*Bed and Breakfast property, with free off-road parking for each room, is conveniently situated in Ambleside town centre in the very heart of the English Lake District, Wainwright's Walking Country. The beautiful waters of Windermere, Rydal and Grasmere are within easy walking distance as are the historic homes of Wordsworth, Ruskin and Beatrix Potter.
