Amenities & services

As a grade 2 listed building, Foxghyll's internal architecture has remained virtually unaltered inside since it's 1870 renovation. All guests' rooms are to be found in their original size and design, with the original dressing rooms providing convenient en-suite bathrooms. Therefore, Foxghyll can offer guests the choice of three large, spacious and luxurious rooms. Each with their own individual features and characteristics. All rooms offer comprehensive en-suite bathroom facilities, as well as essentials like tea / coffee making facilities, remote colour TV, clock radio, hairdryer etc. All rooms provide adequate, comfortable seating; with either settee or armchair.

The Blue Room sits at the front of the house, overlooking the garden and the River Rothay. This room contains both a double and single bed, with bathroom en-suite. This room can be used as either a double or twin-bedded room. At the side of the house, overlooking the garden, and with spectacular views of Wansfell Pike (clouds forgiving) is the Green Room. Built in the oldest part of the house, this spacious room features a cosy four poster bed, with bathroom en-suite. The Pink Room offers guests the chance to relax in its large en-suite bathroom, with bubbly spa bath (excellent for easing those aches after a long day on the fells). This room has both a double and single bed, and as with the Blue room, can be used as either a double or twin.
To set you up for the day, cereals, fruit and a substantial & traditional full English breakfast is served in the adjoining polished oak floored dining room. A vegetarian breakfast is available on request.
