Red Bank is a traditional Lakeland house, in the residential area of Ambleside and just a 5 minute stroll away from the centre of the village, where you can pick up essentials, and sample the popular restaurants and bars.
Guests are welcomed into the friendly, family - run B&B, which retains many of the Edwardian features, yet packed with modern appliances and comfortable interiors.
There are three bedrooms at Red Bank: two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, which can be converted into a super kingsize double room.
All of the comfortable bedrooms have attached en- suite bedrooms with complimentary toiletries. In the rooms you can also find a colour TV, hair dryer, hospitality tray, clock/radio, bottled water and a fluffy dressing gown. We are very proud of our 5 star and silver award status, and the design and furnishings of our bedrooms reflect this.
Breakfast is served in the traditional dining room from 8.30 - 9am, and guests can choose from a range of delicious options, including a full English breakfast with bacon, Cumberland sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and local free range eggs, which can be fried, poached or scrambled. There is also a vegetarian cooked breakfast option available.
Lighter breakfasts include boiled eggs, scrambled or poached eggs on toast, cheese or mushroom omelette, bacon & egg butty. The choice of cereals include muesli, granola, breakfast sprinkles and porridge. Fresh fruit salad, prunes, grapefruit segments, fruit yoghurts, white or wholemeal toast with marmalade, jam and butter are also served.
If requested the night before, we can also serve kippers, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.
The drinks available with breakfast are orange juice, apple juice, herbal and fruit teas, decaffeinated tea/ coffee, Farrer's Lakeland tea and Farrer's fairtrade coffee.
Please note that this Bed and Breakfast is strictly no smoking, and if you smoke in your room an extra charge will be added to your bill, and you may be asked to leave. Guests have use of a large private car park adjacent to the guesthouse. Free WiFi access.
Please note that the cost of the first nights stay is required as a deposit to confirm the booking and should you cancel, is non- refundable. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children under the age of 10. No pets.
The Lake Windermere launch and steamer trips are available at Waterhead, only half a mile away. Our central location makes Red Bank Guest House an ideal base for exploring the Lake District - all the beautiful scenery and walking routes of the Lake District National Park are just a stones throw away - as are outdoor and water sport activities.
No single night weekend bookings taken unless available at last minute.
From the South, leave the M6 at Jct 36 and pass Kendal on the bypass and then follow the A591 to Windermere/Ambleside. As you enter Ambleside at Waterhead traffic lights continue straight ahead. Passing Hayes Garden Centre you will turn left at the BP petrol station onto Wansfell Rd. Red Bank is the last house on the left so please turn off the road into our parking area.
