But all visitors passing through Rydal Hall's grounds and gardens will be able to enjoy our delicious home made cakes and a cuppa amongst other tasty treats.
It's been eerily quiet without you. Our community have really missed seeing all the guests and visitors strolling around the Mawson gardens, enjoying a lovely cup of tea and cake in the Tea Shop, taking advantage of one of the best locations in the Lake district to camp, discovering the beautiful art along the sculpture trail and, of course, relaxing in the unique atmosphere and hospitality of the main hall.
So you are aware of progress being made in re-opening all our facilities we will keep those on our mailing list informed via email and post updates on this website, so please keep checking.
Please know that the Rydal Community are praying for all our visitors and guests during these strange and unusual times. Please spare a thought for us in your prayers, so we are able to return in the safest and best possible way.
May God Bless you, keep praying and stay safe!
The main Hall has 30 bedrooms, sleeping up to 50 guests. Most choose to stay full-board, but for those who prefer, we also take bookings for Dinner Bed & Breakfast or simply B&B. Bookings can be made by groups or just private individuals looking for a break.
Each room offers simple but comfortable accommodation complementing the surroundings and character of the Hall. All rooms are supplied with bed linen, towels, toiletries, hospitality trays and free wifi. Hairdryers are available to borrow from Reception. In keeping with our primary purpose as a retreat house, bedrooms do not have televisions or telephones, but there is a television and DVD player in The Library for houseguests to use.
Rydal Hall is in a lovely setting with the Fairfield Horseshoe and Nab Scar as a backdrop. All bedrooms have at least a limited view of the surrounding landscape. Rooms at the front of the Hall have fantastic views over the formal gardens and down the Rothay Valley and we charge a £5 per person per night supplement for these rooms.
Most bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms; 3 rooms have private bathrooms adjacent to the room and 2 rooms share a bathroom. Guests in the 5 rooms without en-suite bathrooms are provided with a bathrobe to use during their stay.
Single and double rooms are available; in addition, we have a few rooms for 3 to 4 people.
"Full board" includes 3-course dinner, full breakfast, lunch and mid-morning and afternoon refreshments with tray bakes.
"Half board" includes 3-course dinner and full breakfast.
Breakfast includes bacon, fried or poached egg, tomato, hash brown and beans. A variety of fruit juices (orange, apple and blackcurrant), prunes, grapefruit, yogurt and cereals. Tea & coffee with toast with different types of spreads and croissants. Cow’s and soya milk.
Lunch could vary from soup and sandwiches to a salad, cold meat buffet or a 2-course hot lunch.
Meals in the dining room include vegetarian and gluten-free options; other dietary requirements can be catered for but please let us know in advance.
Please note that as Rydal is a retreat house, our dining room is set up a little differently from a standard hotel. We have set mealtimes, and guests sit together around four communal tables.
Our bar is usually open from 6pm until 10pm and other times by arrangement. If you would like service outside these times, please ask at reception and if you are planning to bring a group please let us know what bar times you require. Our licence hours are between 10.30 am until 11pm.
We offer a selection of vegan, vegetarian and organic wines from a local family run wine importer who source their wines carefully from farms who respect the land on which they work.
We also serve a wide variety of local bottled beers, lager, stout and organic cider, spirits, malt whiskies and soft drinks.
For guests who wish, our chaplaincy team can be available by prior arrangement and we can provide areas for quiet contemplation, including our chapel where simple services are held daily.
There is one wheelchair-accessible bedroom on the first floor with level access to an en-suite wet room. First floor rooms are accessible via a chairlift for guests with reduced mobility.
If you have any queries or any particular requirements, please let us know when making an enquiry and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Come and discover Rydal Hall - Many thanks to Robert Duncalf, who took this video using a drone and kindly gave us permission to use it.
