Thorneyfield Guest House

-A Place to Rest-

About Us

Thorneyfield Guest House sits at the heart of Ambleside nestled in the Lake District. This 6 room fairtrade and green B&B provides a comfy locale from which to base yourself for a stay in this delightful region.

We, Andrew and Carole Drummond Smith, look forward to hosting you and making your stay as pleasant as possible.

Ambleside is situated between Windermere and Rydal Water. This makes it the ideal resting place for any Lakeland explorer.

To top off Ambleside's perfect location for trekkers and explorers, we sit at the crossroads of many bike trails and walking routes. All the more reason to call Thorneyfield home whilst discovering the Lakes.

Ambleside is an ideal location for relaxation; boasting several spas, and some of the UK's finest and most innovative restaurants. Moreover, the surrounding lakes provide the perfect situ for genteel exertions.

Whether it be boating, spa therapy, a restaurant break or anything else which tickles your fancy, Thorneyfield is the ideal starting point from which to do so.
