Animal-Friendly Hotel Recognised as Top Spot for Weekend Jaunt

Ambleside, Lake District – Ahead of the bank holiday weekend, PETA has shared its list of the best accommodation for “Vegan-Friendly Weekend Breaks in the UK” – and the Lake District’s Ambleside Manor has nabbed a spot. The hotel is linked to two local award-winning vegetarian restaurants that have great vegan options: Zeffirellis, a casual pizza and pasta restaurant, and Fellinis, a Mediterranean fine-dining restaurant.

“Ambleside Manor is the perfect place to escape reality while still being kind to animals and the environment,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “All the hotels on PETA’s list are revolutionising the hospitality industry by offering vegan meals that can be enjoyed by everyone.”

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”, and the group opposes speciesism, the human-supremacist view that other species are nothing more than commodities. In addition to sparing the lives of nearly 200 animals every year, going vegan also reduces a person’s risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and numerous other health concerns. These are just some of the reasons why millions of Brits have chosen to ditch animal-derived foods.

Other hotels that made the cut include Bay Tree House in East Sussex, Bleujennow in Cornwall, Loaf B&B in Northumberland, and Our Lizzy in Worcestershire. The complete list is available here.

PETA offers a free vegan starter kit, which can be ordered here. For more information, please visit
