Parking & Access
Parking at Rydal is limited, and below are listed the places that you can park for free. Remember the whole area between Ambleside and Grasmere Village can be very busy with visitors, many of whom will also need to park a car. There are pay-to-stay car parks at Pelter Bridge and White Moss Common.
As with Grasmere, parking can be difficult. You might squeeze in by the church in Rydal Village, or into a pull-in close to the Glen Rothay Hotel.
