About Us

Riverside B&B is a beautiful 19 century country house that provides award winning bed and breakfast set in a wonderful rural location in Ambleside and all that the Lake district has to offer.

Situated alongside the river Rothay on a quiet country lane and around 10 – 12 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside.  To reach town; take a left out of Riverside B&B and walk along the lane for about 400 yards, take the stone bridge over the Rothay on your right; walk through the park and past the church and you will find yourself by Zeffirellis.  The lane is dark but we have some torches by the front door which you can borrow.

Riverside has six comfortable double en-suite bedrooms all enjoying lovely views.  Our tasteful lounge, which has a good collection of local maps is also at your disposal and there is a warming log-burning stove to relax with on those cooler nights.  We are licensed and fine wine and beers are available at reasonable prices.

There is ample free parking and we provide drying facilities and secure cycle storage.

Guests are also welcome to use our garden and deck area to relax and enjoy the local scenery.

How To Find Us

To reach Riverside, from either Grasmere or Windermere, follow signs for Ambleside and the 593 for Coniston.  Once on the A593 you will go over a stone bridge (over the river Rothay) and then immediately turn right into Under Loughrigg Lane.  Riverside B&B is about 200 yards up the lane on the left hand side, past the Riverside Lodge.
