Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that we cannot now reopen our doors following the Government announcement for a National Lockdown, which sadly means we are not allowed to welcome our guests.

We will remain closed unti Sunday the 28th of February 2021 and will continue to follow Government advice for a date for re-opening.  We are sincerely sorry if this will mean the cancellation of your reservation with us.

This decision has been made by the government for the safety of our guests and team and to keep Ambleside a safer place at this current time and we await further weekly guidance from the Government.  

If you had a booking coming up during the lockdown and would like to contact us regarding your deposit/payment paid please send an email to to request us to hold the deposit or request a full refund, if you have booked your stay via a third party website ie Booking.Com / Expedia please cancel your booking with them directly.

Let us all forget the difficulties we have all faced in 2020 and hope that we can get back to normality as soon as possible in 2021. We wish you all a safe, healthy and happy New Year and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support and we look forward to when we can celebrate in the New Year together.

Yours Sincerely,

Geoff Atkinson
