We stayed at the Randy Pike for 2 nights as a belated birthday treat. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, with fabulous large bathrooms, perfect for pampering yourself in!
The B&B is in a perfect location, you can literally begin your walks from the door step, and you are close to lovely little towns/villages such as Ambleside and Hawkshead, great for exploring on a lazy day.
I would recommend a trip to the Jumble Room for your dinner ( Andy and Chrissy restaurant in Grasmere), there is such a great atmosphere here and it has long been a firm favourite of ours. The menu is seasonal and ingredients locally sourced.
The best bit about the Randy Pike for us is that your hosts are so welcoming, you are made to feel like nothing is to much trouble and they will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect... Even if that is your husband ordering x3 of the amazing blueberry trifle's served at breakfast!
Fantastic trip, looking foward to planing the next one!
- 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
