Welcome to the Old Vicarage at Ambleside – more than just a bed and breakfast, located in the heart of the Lake District. As well as comfortable B&B accommodation, we’re the only bed and breakfast in Ambleside with its own swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. There’s also a pleasant guest lounge, small snooker table and an extensive terrace. This takes us beyond a standard Ambleside Guest House experience; more of an Ambleside Hotel experience!

The bed and breakfast is located only 2 minutes walk from Ambleside town centre, wonderfully situated for trips to Grasmere, Windermere, Coniston and Keswick. If the Lake District landscape is your passion, there is easy access from the B&B onto the Lakeland fells and with a little effort you’ll enjoy stunning views down Lake Windermere or up into The Langdales. To make this even easier, why not park your car in our private car park and leave it there?

Our location in Ambleside makes it easy to walk to the pier for boat trips to Bowness-on-Windermere and Lakeside. If you fancy a drink or meal in the evening, it’s only a short walk from The Old Vicarage bed and breakfast to an array of Ambleside coffee shops, pubs and restaurants, all within easy reach. We hope you will enjoy your stay at The Old Vicarage B&B in Ambleside.
