Buying & Restoration of 16th Century Building

Buying & Restoration of 16th Century Building

The aim of the project is to buy & restore a 16th Century Building, in keeping with the conservation area of the English Lake District

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

Rydal Lodge is set in the Conservation Area of the English Lake District in Ambleside.

There are many tourist attractions in the area such as Beatrix Potter world & Rydal Mount, the home of the famous Romantic Poet William Wordsworth.

I am looking at developing Rydal Lodge & restoring it to it's former glory as currently with all of the footfall going past daily, it's missing a trick of serving food daily as the nearest pub doesn't serve between 3 and 8pm. I'm looking at opening a coffee shop as well as a bed & breakfast to take advantage of the busy summer months.

The Lodge itself is set in beautiful well kept grounds with Rydal Lake only a matter of metres away at the bottom of the garden
