Crow How Country House Bed & Breakfast
Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells and surrounded by Rydal Farm, this grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country House in the early 1930's. Today it has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District, providing Bed and Breakfast near Ambleside.
Crow How is a family run, fully licensed Country House, run by John and Eddy Doano, their son Matthew and daughter Cassandra. We have over 30 years experience in hospitality and catering in the Lake District. We take pride in our house, having a very relaxed style and are happy to give any advice and/or help where needed.
There are few better sited country houses in the area, located in two acres of private woodland gardens we are surrounded by the magnificent Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg Fell, with splendid views out towards the fields of Rydal Valley to the front of the house. Set peacefully away from the road, next to a working farm we are half a mile from Ambleside and ten minutes drive from Grasmere.
Located in the heart of the Lake District, we are in a peaceful and secluded position, surrounded by mountains and fells but only 10 minutes walk away from Ambleside with its shops, cafes and restaurants. Grasmere is only 10 minutes drive away, with Keswick a further 10 minutes away. Windermere, Kendal , Coniston and Hawkshead are also easily accessed within half an hour. Waterhead is only 20 minutes walk away where you can catch frequent boat trips to Bowness and Lakeside, where the Aquarium is situated. We have complete timetables for both the boats and for buses.
