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.

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 29th Sept. 2016 " Everything excellent. You have an exceptional chef. Food is the best we have had in a long time. Staff very friendly."

Open everyday for food, drinks and a warm welcome

  • Double, twin and family rooms
  • Children welcome
  • Dog friendly
  • Plenty of parking
  • WiFi

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?
