Accommodations
Originally built in the 1600's in the style of a typical lakeland farmhouse, Foxghyll has undergone a diverse and colourfull history. Having once had the famous writer and poet Thomas DeQuincey as a tenant for a short time, the house was later occupied by the Hon. W.E. Forster, MP for the Borough of Bradford, and the first minister of education. It was during this time in the 1870's that extensive additions were made in the decorative & imaginative style of an affluent Regency country house.

For the last 2 decades however, Foxghyll has become one of the leading family rum B & B's in the area, offering guests a peaceful & tranquil setting, yet all within easy walking distance of Ambleside Town Centre. Set amongst a formerly laid, 2 acre garden and with direct access to Loughrigg Fell itself. Foxghyll sits as a haven to all those who seek to enjoy the beauty & serenity that the Lake District has to offer.
During the Spring & Summer months, Foxghyll's private & secluded garden comes to life with a vast and varied array of plant & shrub life, with excellent views of the Lakeland Fells. From land adjoining the river Rothay, Foxghyll can also boast private fishing. Foxghyll also provides ample private parking.

As a grade 2 listed building. Foxghyll has remained virtually unaltered inside since it's 1870 renovation. All guests rooms are to be found in their original size and design, with the original dressing rooms providing convenient en-suite bathrooms. The interior is decorated in a style befitting the house, as antiques, panelled doors and ornate plasterwork ceilings adorn the interior.
