Rooms at the Apple Pie

Rydal Road, Ambleside, LA22 9AN
Rooms at the Apple Pie Outside

Located in the centre of Ambleside, Rooms at the Apple Pie is a guest house that strives to provide boutique accommodation at an affordable price. This is a family run business, that started in 1975 with the opening of the Apple Pie café by David Fielding and his mother. Forty years on and the business is still thriving, now managed by David’s children. The guest rooms were a much later addition to the business, occupying a building adjacent to the café and bakery, and have since been rated by a national newspaper as one of the top guest houses in the area.

The Apple Pie is a great base for exploring the Lake District. From here it is a 20-minute walk to the landing stages for the Windermere Lakes Cruises. Hop aboard a cruise and you can visit various attractions including Wray Castle, Brockhole, and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. Additionally, Derwent Water, Coniston Water, and Ullswater are all within a 30-minute drive.

There are just eight rooms at the Apple Pie, all immaculately presented in a modern, chic, style that does not detract from the period features of this traditional Lakeland property. There are two large rooms on the ground floor with king sized beds and room for an additional folding bed or cot. On the middle floor there are two doubles and two king rooms. The top floor has two rooms with a shared landing. They are in the attic of the building, so feature sloped ceilings with skylights and limited headroom in places. Both are twin rooms.

  • En-suite bathrooms with showers
  • Complimentary toiletries
  • Flat screen television
  • Radio alarm clock with iPod docking
  • Free Wi-Fi
