Stayed with my partner for the weekend for my birthday to do some walking and sightseeing. We were greated by Roy and Dennis (2 chiwauwas) who let you know who's boss when you arrive and Paul the owner. The dogs gave us great amusement and had just as much character as the house itself!
To start with if your looking for a modern premises with all mod cons this is not for you as it is slightly dated. On the other hand if you're looking for a house full of character, history and original features set in the most idylic location then this is the place for you. it's a couple of minutes drive from Ambleside, if that. We stayed in the 4 poster room which had the most amazing views. The bed was so comfy it was hard to seperate myself from it in the morning! The room had a large tv and en suite bathroom. The bathroom has no shower (we knew this before arrival) which didn't bother us in the slightest but if you wanted, there is use of one down the hall. The water was always piping hot so guaranteed a lovely soak after a long day. Two heaters in the rooms so if you are chilly you can adjust accordingly. Towels changed daily and rooms cleaned with complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and a couple of rocky bars left daily. Now then breakfast...absolutely gorgeous and a wide range of choice. My only complaint about breakfast..... I put on 3lbs!!! The house is also lovely and clean.
Paul helped my partner arrange flowers and cake for my birthday too which was very kind of him. Paul is a very friendly host and made us feel really welcome in his home without being overwhelming. He gave us advice on the local and was a pleasure to talk to.
We would definitely stay at The Foxghyll again and will recommend it to others who are visiting the area. We would like to thank Paul for making our stay an enjoyable one.
