Why We Love It
- This Cumbrian hideaway is "perfectly located for touring the Lakes" (The AA Hotel Guide 2017), and is 10 minutes' walk from Lake Windermere
- The hotel is set in the picturesque, fell-ringed town of Ambleside and boasts a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant
- Grizedale Forest and John Ruskin's home of Brantwood are 20 minutes' drive away
Rothay Manor Hotel is a country-house retreat set in Ambleside, a pretty Lakeland town just to the north of Lake Windermere. A quaint water mill, a 17th-century stone bridge and cosy, slate-roofed pubs are a few of the quirks you'll find in this fell-encircled town.
There is an abundance of things to do in the area. You can join a launch cruise from Waterhead (within a 15-minute walk of the hotel), and Lakeland Pony Treks operates from Troutbeck (12 minutes' drive away). You can also drive 20 minutes and hike trails lined with ancient beech trees at Grizedale Forest, or explore the personal treasures of John Ruskin at his home Brantwood (open daily; Wed-Sun in winter).
The Grade II-listed hotel was built in 1823 and holds 2 AA Rosettes for its fine-dining cuisine. As well as traditional Sunday lunch and afternoon tea, the restaurant serves a variety of gourmet dishes using locally sourced produce.
Bedrooms have Egyptian cotton sheets and feather-down bedding. Classic rooms are at the side or rear of the hotel with views over the River Rothay towards Loughrigg Fell, or over Ambleside towards Wansfell Pike. Front-facing Superior rooms have a balcony or terrace with garden views, and Suites offer more space.
Guests get free use of the swimming pool and gym at the Ambleside Salutation Hotel & Spa (subject to availability), which is a 10-minute walk away. Dogs can stay in some rooms for £20 per dog, per stay (please enquire on booking).
