Secretly Famous™ for…

For being unspoilt, unstuffy, comfortable and relaxing with friendly staff, great bedrooms and delicious food.

Rothay Manor is a small country house hotel, big on atmosphere and totally 'unstuffy' with a great team who are probably the friendliest in the business and always happy to help. In a great position in the heart of the Lake District, within easy walking distance of Ambleside and Windermere Lake, the hotel has been owned by the Nixon family for 43 years with Nigel currently at the helm with his wife, Gwyneth, who are both very much involved in the day-to-day running of the business. We are proud of our reputation for being relaxing, comfortable and friendly and ‘where guests feel at home’, a feeling helped by the many longstanding staff members who are as much a part of Rothay Manor as Nigel and Gwyneth and promote the very real ‘family’ feel of the hotel.

With its lovely gardens to sit in when the weather is nice and plenty of free on-site parking, it makes an ideal base for walking or cycling as well as sightseeing or jusr ‘chilling out’. The restaurant has been listed in the Good Food Guide for 41 years and offers great food throughout the day from Morning Coffee, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Dinner.

Non-residents are welcome.
