Me, my partner and our Patterdale Terrier stayed here second weekend in July. We stayed 3 nights in a pet friendly room which is situated at the back of the property in a separate building. The room was very neat and very clean which is all I ask for in a room really. The hotel is in a great location... More

Visited with my son for a walking holiday- we wanted something decent but not too expensive. Ferndale ticks all the boxes! Parked up in their car park (big plus) and greeted by friendly staff. Straight to our nice clean room. Not overly modern decor but bed was comfortable after a long days walking. No bath but really nice shower in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a double room. Room was spacious with an en-suite shower and the comfortable bed led to a good nights sleep. Off road parking at the rear of the hotel is rare and welcome in Ambeside. Breakfast is ordered the night before and cooked to order, plentiful and very tasty. Cereal, toast, fruit, yoghurt and...

Our host was away so we were ably looked after by his mother. She was welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable with a generous hospitality tray. The breakfast room was well set out with a wonderful array of fresh fruit to go with our cereal and yoghurt. Mary produced exactly what we wanted for a cooked breakfast... More

Stayed three nights on a break to do some sampling of real ale in and around Ambleside, oh and a full day walk to Fairfield summit. Ferndale ideally placed, comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms with good breakfast, great hosts. Few minutes from pubs and restaurants, bus terminus close by (buses ideal to explore the area). Will visit again.

We stayed for a couple of nights in a twin room which was located in an annex to the rear of the main house. Very comfortable room with everything you need. 1 minute walk into the center of Ambleside and handy free, off street parking which is rare in Ambleside. Rob was very welcoming and provided an excellent breakfast.

Very warm and friendly welcome. Room was clean and very cosy nice and quiet not in the main house. Breakfast was lovely and exactly as ordered. Bonus having free parking and location excellent close to the town and local pubs, shops and restaurants. Only downside no wifi.

My husband and I spent 3 nights over the New Year period at Ferndale Lodge - meeting up with several family members. It was a struggle to find available accommodation over New Year in Ambleside and after reading the excellent reviews we reluctantly booked the 'pet' annex room as it was the only room left! On our arrival ( without... More
