While Randy Pike may be more expensive than some other places in Ambleside, it is so worth it! From the moment you arrive, you feel so well looked after. From the home made cake on arrival and the free mini-bar, to the beautifully decorate rooms with walk-in showers and beautiful bath tubs, to the huge, luxurious and comfortable beds, it...

I feel bad writing this review as I would keep this place a secret if I could, we have visited and stayed as a couple, with family and friends every time has been exceptional and even the wet weather didn't dampen our two nights. The beds are gloriously comfortable, the rooms warm, stylist and well fitted, the quality of all...

We stayed at Randy Pike (in The Vallelay Suite) for 3 nights over New Year 2016/17....a wonderfully appointed property, perched up above Lake Windermere and run by a very thoughtful, fun- loving couple in Andy and Chrissie - who did all they could to make our experience utterly top notch! The suite (with it's designer/chic furnishings, ultra comfortable bed, enormous...

OMG - this place is amazing. The room we stayed in (the Dawson Suite) was faultless. The pictures on the website are good but do not do it justice. We arrived after a long journey and were both so so tired. However once we were shown to our room our attitudes changed, suddenly our energy level were up for going...

A perfect retreat to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Gorgeous rooms, beautifully decorated, every detail has been thought through carefully. We stayed in the Dawson suite and loved it - the bathroom is 'out of this world' with the most enormous bath as well as his and hers basins and a huge shower. Breakfast was...

We stayed at Randy Pike for 4 nights and everything was perfect! Very peaceful, lovely room and the food was delicious!! It's worth staying a number of nights just to try the different breakfast options; however I can heartily recommend the full cooked breakfast the breakfast granola, the kedgeree and the homemade muffins. Chrissy and Andy were lovely hosts as...

As soon as you walk through the door of your self-contained suite you know you are in a very special place. This was our second visit to Randy Pike but in a different suite. The attention to detail is what makes this boutique B&B stand out from the crowd with huge gilt mirrors, vintage style dressers, White Company bedding, large...

My wife and I stayed in The Vallelay Suite at Randy Pike in June for a couple of nights. It was perfect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we loved every minute.

We stayed at the Randy Pike a few months ago with a couple of friends. This is a really quirky, individual establishment. The rooms are very well presented and there has obviously been significant investment in their presentation. The beds are very comfortable and of high quality, as is the bedding. We had a really private, quiet, relaxing time with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Randy Pike is our home on the outskirts of Ambleside in the heart of the English Lake District. Once a Gentleman’s Hunting lodge on the Wray castle Estate we have just recently returned it to its former glory... Randy Pike is Lakeland's sexiest new bed and breakfast, and yet B and B is it truly in its very simplest form, the suites are large and luxurious that have kept the character and feeling of that iconic neo-gothic era and yet marry perfectly with the all the modern facilities you'd expect with Vi-sprung beds, cloaked in the very best frette line and plump crisp pillows, there's a flat screen tv, i-pod dock, tea and fresh coffee. The Showers are the size of a small country, warm, funky and sexy... there's truly nothing out there like them. Andy and Chrissy Hill ... more   less
