A real Lake District gem - a great value country B&B on one side and an historic 400 year old inn on the other.

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?
