The family run Apple Pie Eating House & Bakery has been part of the fabric of Ambleside for the last 40 years. Now they also have eight beautifully converted boutique style en-suite rooms situated right next door. All have luxurious beds and attractive soft furnishings with plenty of extra touches like tea and coffee, flatscreen TV and iPod docking stations. Tariffs are for room only with 10% off breakfast (or takeaway) next door when you flash your room key. If you would rather stay out of town, Goody Bridge Holiday Cottages are on the grounds of the family farm near Grasmere and are available for rental.
