Foxghyll is such a lovely place to stay. Set in 40 acres of its own grounds it certainly has the WOW factor when first viewed at the end of the country road leading to it. Paul gave us a very warm welcome and was a very kind and helpful host throughout our stay. As it had been his family home... More

Before we stayed at Foxghyll ,I'd read some of the reveiws on here,including the bad ones,so wasn't sure how it would turn out... but my friend had already booked us in! So it was with relief that we found it's actually a fantastic place to stay.Accessable walks right from the back garden and only 20 min walk into Ambleside or... More

My husband and I stayed at Foxghyll Guesthouse 2 weeks ago for 4 days. I wanted to stay for 4 months as we had such a wonderful time. Paul & Majorie were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and you could basically personalize what you wanted. Parking was close and we felt comfortable coming and going. The countryside is so... More

We had a three nights break here from September 7th, and enjoyed our stay. Paul was a very good host, and we enjoyed the breakfasts which he prepared. The house is lovely, and the surrounding area is well worth a visit. (We had the four poster room, and the bed was very comfortable).

We spent five nights at Foxghyll and had a lovely time. The house is beautifully set against Loughrigg Fell and the rooms are large and comfortable with an old traditional feel to them (we had the four poster bedroom). Ambleside is only a short walk away so we had access to everything we needed within a short distance but could... More

We stayed at Fox Ghyll for three nights over the weekend of the Great North Swim. The house is charming and characterful and our room was big and comfortable, with a big bathroom. The house is secluded and is in within easy walking distance from Ambleside along a pleasant road near a stream and some fields. You could catch a... More

Stayed July 2013. The house is charming and full of character. Our room was a good size and the breakfasts hearty. The house is in a secluded location that feels in the country, but with 15 minute walk you can be in Ambleside. A path at the side takes you up to Loghrigg walks and a few minutes drive to... More
