Welcome to Glen Rothay
A real Lake District gem - a great value country B&B on one side and an historic 400 year old inn on the other.
It's the same old Badger Bar, but not quite as you remember it.
Update December 2020: The Lake District is in Tier 2 and we are happy to welcome visitors from other tier 1 or Tier 2 areas. Tier 3 or 4, you are not allowed to travel, sorry. We have lots of precautions in place. There are strict limits on numbers inside and it is table service only. Masks must be worn until seated. We are lucky to have plenty of inside space and that is carefully managed to ensure safety.
We will constantly review how we set up and will improve things as we work forward, whilst always ensuring that everything we do, and how we open and welcome you back is undertaken with the focus being on providing a Covid secure environment for both staff and all our customers. "
The best walks in the Lake District start right from our doorstep, or just relax in this famous old building and enjoy the good food, real ales and open fires. Our staff are friendly and helpful and play a big part in making the Glen Rothay a really unique place to stay - just have a look at our guestbook, full of comments from guests who return again and again.
Guest review 3rd October 2019 " Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. The staff were so friendly and were so happy to help with anything. The food was amazing, we loved the breakfasts and the pies were amazing ! The highlight was watching the badgers feed of an evening. Our room was lovely so comfy and quiet we thoroughly enjoyed staying here and can’t wait to come again !!"

Ambleside and Grasmere are close by, and there are glorious views all around. It is not surprising that William Wordsworth chose to live most of his life at Rydal Mount, just behind us on the fellside. And every evening you can see the badgers being fed in our grounds. Where else can you get all that?
