Home truths

Rothay Manor is actually a 5 or 10 min walk from the centre of Ambleside. We think that provides the best of both worlds. Should you want to amble in to town you can do so, and for the evening retreat back to your cosy country home for dinner. There really is no better place locally to dine.....
