Situated towards central Ambleside, Lake District, Brathay Lodge is within a few minutes’ walk of over 30 eateries offering a wide range of cuisine. There are also numerous gourmet restaurants and inns within a short drive of Ambleside - something for all tastes and all budgets. For that reason we have decided to specialise in deluxe guest accommodation on a B & B basis only. Most of our guests visiting Ambleside on a short break or as part of an even longer Lake District vacation tend to leave their cars / motorbikes on our large private off-road car park for the duration of their stay, preferring to take advantage of our proximity and enjoy the many local walks during the day and the restaurants and bars of the evening. Walkers / mountain bikers / golfers / groups etc, both casual and serious, like Brathay Lodge’s informality and enjoy the facilities on offer and if it’s wet or muddy, there is always a place to dry out those wet clothes and footwear overnight.
