  • "What a lovely property it had everything we could have wanted."

    Our base for a weeks walking .very quiet .perfect views .lots of space .Nice towells.and loved the defusers in all rooms .the bath was very strange big enough for a couple to get in (oops). Close enough for a walk into Ambleside for a coffee. (But a bit of a climb back)if your not fit it will be a bit of a challenge walking up the drive)but don't be put off its in beautifull grounds .we liked watching out the kitchen patio doors at all the runners cyclists and walkers heading out up the lane at the back for the walk to loughrigg fells. A welcome pack would have been expected at such a classy place but not to worry sometimes you get them sometimes you don't. We are looking to return if its available when we want it. We read that the soffas are being replaced .(yes thats a good idea. ) we also saw deer in the grounds one day.

    Thank you so much for your kind review . The bath is certainly large - relaxing after a long walk ! Look forward to you returning very soon . Property Owner

  • "We have been coming to the Lake District for years and this has been our favourite place we have stayed."

    The apartment is beautiful and so well equipped, there was everything we needed. Loved the little private garden, was very relaxing to sit out on an evening. The walk down into Ambleside is lovely through the park, lots of pubs and restaurants to choose from also. Thank you to the owners for their hospitality.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and the garden. We hope to welcome you again. The Heart of the Lakes Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The general standard was very high however the beds were both very uncomfortable."

    Both myself and my guests suffered from back ache after sleeping there. The mattresses need to be replaced i think. The sofa too needs attention. I won't be staying at the Rydal suite again until there are better beds which is a shame because otherwise it's the nice suite of them all.

    Many thanks for your feedback and your comment about the general standard being very high. The sofas are being replaced in the near future . All the bathrooms / bedrooms were brand new last year including all the furniture, fittings and accessories - I am sorry you all found them uncomfortable . Property Owner

  • "We really loved the Rydal suite."

    A huge thank you to the owner. It's the best equipped and most comfortable property we have stayed in. The kitchen is particularly well equipped, to a standard we've not experienced before. I can not think of a single improvement I would make. We are hoping to return later this year

    Hi- many thanks for your kind feedback. We look forward to you returning to Rydal Suite in the future . Property Owner

  • "En suite shower was a nightmare."

    Kept having to turn it off because it wasn’t draining away. Lovely apartment but the steep drive was too steep for disabled person. The road along the riverside was challenging due to cars parked illegally and some younger drivers were very reluctant to reverse back so that we could get passed.

  • "Really lovely place in all respects."

    While we enjoyed the comfort and fun of the "quicksand sofas", in honesty they should probably be replaced. Otherwise it was a marvellous place to stay and we will definitely come again!

    Many thanks for you kind feedback- so pleased you enjoyed our new home . The sofas will certainly be upgraded this year . Property Owner

Dine as a group at the large dining table or the breakfast bar, there is also a reading chair to admire the views.

For an alternative dining arrangement, head outside to the private patio for your meals alfresco, or an evening glass of wine in the last of the summer sun.

Choose from two bedrooms, both fitted with king-size beds and storage for your belongings, One of which with an en-suite bathroom whilst the other has it's own shower room (shower and wash basin) plus access to the Jack-and-Jill cloakroom/toilet.

Walks from the door keep everyone happy, you can stroll to the lake for cruises and boat hire, or ramble through the park to the centre of Ambleside for local shopping and eating out.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
