Lovely location but be carful with your satnav house charming. four poster bedroom lovely great views over garden. Paul our host was very welcoming and gave us good advice on walks and even lent us a rucksack as we had forgotten ours. Breakfast was fun with the infuriating puzzles. Had a great time would go back

One of the best we've stayed in. A wonderful house set in lovely gardens under Loughrigg Fell, with a beautiful view across the valley to the hills beyond. Our bedroom was superb, spacious and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom, and the bed was so comfy and large! Paul our host produced great breakfasts every day and was very helpful...

We stayed 2 nights in this tucked away quirky B&B and I couldn't fault it, from the large clean room and comfy bed to the home cooked breakfast, set in the peaceful countryside yet walking distance to town. Paul was a great host too. A great base to explore the gorgeous scenery of the Lake District.

Foxghyll is a handsome mansion just outside Ambleside that has only three rooms. We spent four nights in one of them. Superb views, fine amenities, and a really friendly and helpful host in Paul. He even did a load of washing for me, knowing we had been away from home a while. You can chat with the other guests at...

Had a lovely time here. It is quiet and peaceful. Takes about 10 to 15 mins walk into Ambleside. Views from the house are fantastic and the rooms are large. Good value for money. Host is friendly and helpful.

Tucked along a quiet access road populated more by walkers than by vehicles sits Foxghyll, with the river running alongside. Beautiful quiet spot amidst the hustle and bustle of Ambleside. Paul is a charming host and is a bit of a one man band, with his side-kicks Barry and Roy, his two little dogs. We had a beautifully appointed room...

My sister and I visited March 2017 for a 4night midweek trip, keen to explore all the sights of the Lake District. In our 30s we wanted to stay somewhere special, centrally located, easy to access but beautiful, peaceful and tranquil for our very first visit to the area. Simply could not have picked a better location or B&B, Foxghyll...

Really enjoyed our stay here. It was very quiet and relaxing and away from the main road. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been recently refurished, so looking good. All 3 letting bedrooms are large and have comfortable beds. Paul is an excellent host and cooks a very good quality English breakfast. There is a large well kept garden with a...

We spent two nights here in late February 2017. Clean and very welcoming. Great breakfast and a very nice place. The owner cannot do enough for you aqnd the grounds are impresive. A great walking route into Ambleside.
