Rothay Manor is in an ideal location, in the very heart of the Lake District National Park and just five minute's walk from the centre of the pretty town of Ambleside. You don't have to look far to find a great place to go walking as you are surrounded by beautiful mountains, rivers and of course the world famous lakes.
