As regular Lakes visitors over many years, we'd promised ourselves that we would visit Randy Pike when the place was brought to our attention 4 or so years ago. I'll keep this review fairly short, the entire experience was absolutely outstanding. From the welcome, with large home made cookies, to the amazing breakfasts, the exceptionally well adorned rooms and the...

A great find in the Lake District. Beautiful room, great bathroom and very welcoming hosts. We took advantage of the lift to and from The Jumbles Restaurant in Grasmere which made for a relaxing evening and lovely food. We really couldn't fault our stay and definitely hope to visit again!

Yet another super stay at the Randy Pike. Everything about this place is just perfect and the most romantic place to stay in the Lake District.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Randy Pike for the last part of our honeymoon and what a finale it was! From the best hosts, best bedroom/bathroom to best breakfast EVER! We stayed in the Vallelay Suite and it must be seen to be believed. Such attention to detail and luxury with a hint of quirkiness. Andy and...

The warm welcome on the phone to a booking is always encouraging, and when the hosts allowed us to change our date for another, it was no trouble at all.

We've just returned from our fourth visit to the Randy Pike in the last two and a half years, and have now stayed in all three suites. The three suites are entirely different but all decorated to an exceptionally high standard with plenty of lovely,quirky touches to keep you amused. There are complimentary drinks in the fridge and freshly baked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Randy Pike is our home on the outskirts of Ambleside in the heart of the English Lake District. Once a Gentleman’s Hunting lodge on the Wray castle Estate we have just recently returned it to its former glory... Randy Pike is Lakeland's sexiest new bed and breakfast, and yet B and B is it truly in its very simplest form, the suites are large and luxurious that have kept the character and feeling of that iconic neo-gothic era and yet marry perfectly with the all the modern facilities you'd expect with Vi-sprung beds, cloaked in the very best frette line and plump crisp pillows, there's a flat screen tv, i-pod dock, tea and fresh coffee. The Showers are the size of a small country, warm, funky and sexy... there's truly nothing out there like them. Andy and Chrissy Hill ... more   less
