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 has been totally refurbished in a contemporary style B & B which is fairly unique to the area. 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 have 19 rooms available all with king size beds, these are made up of standard, superior (ground floor, pet friendly included) , twin, triple, family rooms (sleeps 3-5) and four poster suites. All rooms are en-suite with Jacuzzi spa bath and shower over, tea & coffee making facilities and colour T.V's.
A variety of family rooms have a king size and two single beds with ¾ partition wall with external balcony access.
The Four Poster suites overlook the front with wonderful Lakeland views across to the churchyard and fells beyond which has been described by Lake District National Park officers as probably the best in Ambleside. A wireless network allows guests to connect their personal laptops to our Broadband Internet connection from most rooms and a PC is available in the lounge area where that is not available.
We are a non smoking establishment but we have several rooms which have their own external access to a covered seated area for those who wish to smoke. We also welcome pets into these rooms as they have wooden flooring which enables us to thoroughly clean and remove all allergy inducing particles. These rooms provide luxury accommodation in the style of a motel and are very popular as they enable a greater degree of freedom.
