Randy Pike is the place to go for complete relaxation in absolute luxury. This was our second visit and we stayed in the new Dawson suite which is sublime. The decor is sumptuous and quirky and an awful lot of thought has gone in to making your stay very special indeed! The bathroom in the Dawson suite is amazing with...

Agreeing with your other reviewers - YES it's impossible to really add anything to the overflowing and glowing superlatives ! Having stayed in the Vallelay Suite twice recently on two separate occasions - yes I can only reiterate that it was a soothing, nurturing, gastronomically divine experience in every way - whether it's your chauffeur driven dinner at The Jumble...

...to describe the Randy Pike and its owners Chrissie and Andy! Truly magical place that is a real one off, as are the owners. From the stupendous breakfast (served in your room) to the all inclusive mini bar this place ticks all the boxes. It really is like staying with friends, complete with dogs, you are made welcome from the...

Pricewise this place is a bit of a treat but you won't be disappointed. We stayed for two nights last augus (2011). Room & bathroom were fantastic, welcome & service were first class. We had a superb dinner at the jumble rooms (chauffeur driven). Breakfast is like nothing we'd seen before. Cannot recommend the place more highly. If you can...

We got married in May and decided that we would remain in England for our honeymoon, so we wanted somewhere a little special... I searched the web and stumbled across Randy Pike. I looked no further and have no regrets. After showing my then fiancé, we both agreed it was - on paper - truly amazing. So I read the...

I'm not sure that the last review makes any sense as they complain about the room not being private yet they would have preferred a breakfast room. The patio style doors do have curtains that can magically be closed... My husband and I stayed at Randy Pike last November for the first few days of our honeymoon and found it...

There seems to be a competition to use as many superlatives as possible to describe the Randy Pike. What can we say? After a fantastic day on Windermere with friends and champagne picnic on a boat we turned up at the hotel which is an oasis of style with three of the most wonderful rooms we have ever seen. The...

We've just got home after spending two nights at the Randy Pike and it felt like a little slice of heaven. Just exactly what we needed after our wedding and all the work that goes into it. Rest, relaxation and a chance to unwind in a lovely tranquil location. The rooms are simply stunning, beautifully furnished with just about everything...

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...

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
