We stayed here for the second time in June 2015 and once again had an excellent stay. My husband was doing the Great North Swim and the B&B is in the perfect location for walking to the event site. The walk into Ambleside takes about 10-15 minutes and every day we saw deer, birds and bats on our way into... More

Stayed here for a night when exploring the Lake District on a short break away from the city, wonderful place! Paul was a great host who made us feel very welcome while also providing an incredible breakfast! Room was very spacious and clean offering everything we needed. 3 minute drive into Ambleside providing a great location. Will definitely aim to... More

I have found this quiet place by accident and I am glad I did. The scenery on the pictures don't do justice for the Foxghyll B&B as it is more beautiful in reality. Situated at the bottom of a smaller, forest covered mountain near Ambleside, this house has a quiet and pleasant place to offer to those who are looking... More

Had a two night stay here and couldn't be more positive about the place. It's a beautiful old house, full of character, in a really lovely location. Paul was friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts were excellent and the room warm and comfortable. It's a short (15-20 minute) and very pleasant walk into Ambleside so near enough for shopping and meals... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as a short break while we were walking in the lakes. Found it by accident on the internet at short notice and am very glad that we did. A gorgeous big old country house approx. 20 mins walk from the centre of Ambleside. Set in its own grounds and the route up loughrigg fell starts... More

Set just a short walk from Ambleside, in a peaceful location below Loughrigg Fell, this country house was homely and friendly with Paul as an excellent host. Breakfast cooked to order, as much or as little as you would like and nothing was too much trouble. There are only three rooms available to stay in, the remainder being the owner's... More

We spent 3 nights here in early September and couldn't have been happier. There is ample parking (one of our priorities) and it is a short drive to Ambleside. Likewise, it is a short walk and Paul will provide torches (aka "flashlights" for the Americans) for the walk back, if it is after dark. After a long day of walking,... More

We had three nights here and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Paul is a great host - attentive and entertaining. He could not do enough for us. The house is huge with large gardens and lots of parking space, but only three rooms are used for B&B. The location is fantastic and the town is an easy 20 minute walk along... More

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
