Situated down a quiet country lane and right in the heart of the Lake District, Gilbert Scar Foot is the perfect home from home. Attached to the owners’ B&B, this spacious Victorian property offers very good quality accommodation, and provides a tasteful blend of contemporary and Victorian décor throughout. Enjoy the glistening reflections of the River Rothay from the bay window in the living room, or spend your evening with friends or family in the large open plan living area. The bedrooms have been stylishly furnished and have views of either the River Rothay or Loughrigg Fell. The private terrace also provides spectacular views of the surrounding fells.
Just a 15-minute walk from the centre of Ambleside, Gilbert Scar Foot is the perfect place from which to explore the Lake District National Park. Waterhead, where you can take a trip on one of the Lake Windermere steamers, is just a short walk away, and there are many attractions within a few miles which can be reached by foot, bike or car. Nearby walks around beautiful Rydal Water or the breathtaking views from the top of Loughrigg Fell, never fail to impress. Brockhole, with its park and visitor centre, and Wray Castle (National Trust), make for great family day’s out. Perhaps have a picnic on the lawn while enjoying the view over Lake Windermere? For the more adventurous walkers there are the famous peaks of Great Langdale. After a busy day, what better way than to come back to Gilbert Scar Foot, relax, unwind and take in the evening views. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
