Brathay Lodge, Ambleside, is a traditional English Lake District B&B which was originally built as two semi detached properties around 1890 probably to satisfy the demand for guest, B&B, hotel and pet friendly accommodation by the Lake District tourist industry which was then in its infancy. The property is of a contemporary style B&B. The brief to the interior design team was to create an informal atmosphere conducive to unwinding with high class guest accommodation to a high quality hotel / B&B standard.

We, like most guests, believe that this is what has been created - a very different bed and breakfast, an extremely pleasant warm and friendly place where you can enjoy banter with the family and staff or have peace and quiet - whatever you require.

Situated towards central Ambleside, Lake District, Brathay Lodge is within a few minutes' walk of over 30 eateries offering a wide range of cuisine. There are also numerous gourmet restaurants and inns within a short drive of Ambleside - something for all tastes and all budgets. For that reason we have decided to specialise in deluxe guest accommodation on a B&B basis only. Most of our guests visiting Ambleside on a short break or as part of an even longer Lake District vacation tend to leave their cars on our large private off-road car park for the duration of their stay, preferring to take advantage of our proximity and enjoy the many local walks during the day and the restaurants and bars of the evening. Walkers/mountain bikers/golfers etc, both casual and serious, like Brathay Lodge's informality and enjoy the facilities on offer and if it's wet or muddy, there is always a place to dry out those wet clothes and footwear overnight.

    “Very good”

    We really enjoyed our stay with our 3 young children. The only downside was the use a leisure facilities at Langdale. The website clearly states guests have use of these facilities. When we asked we were told we would have to pay £22.50. Eventually we were given free entry, but this could have spoilt our whole stay, as we had promised to take the children swimming & we made the booking because the use of a swimming pool was included. The manager had went home sick this day, the lady left in charge, always very polite was a bit slow to agree to let us use the facilities, a shame really. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
