This is a quintessentially English country house hotel. Nestling on the hillside and overlooking Lake Windemere the property enjoys one of the finest views in the Lake District, once described as amongst the top 15 views in the world. The sweeping panorama takes in the breathtakingly beautiful vista of the lake with the fells in the background, and if you are looking for a secluded and inspirational spot this must surely be it.

The house itself lives up to its stunning surroundings, offering a luxurious and sophisticated retreat.  Designed and decorated with an Arts and Crafts feel the house provides a relaxed and welcoming oasis of calm backed up with first class hospitality. In winter log fires roar and there are plenty of comfy sofas to sink into; in summer the terrace beckons to take advantage of the glorious views. The hotel holds a Michelin star so guests will enjoy the best of local cuisine complemented by fine wines.

From the oak panelled entrance hall to the elegant drawing room this lovely property exudes an air of stylish comfort and calm, truly a home from home for relaxing, entertaining and working or a mixture of all three. Ideal for a large gathering of family and friends the property lends itself to an informal but luxurious house party where everyone can relax and be looked after in style.  For a more formal celebration or wedding the grounds and views provide a picture perfect backdrop for some memorable photographs.

All the bedrooms are individually designed with beautiful fabrics and the latest in modern comforts.  Choose from traditional style rooms or a more contemporary feel.  All have breath-taking views over the Lake or the fells.

18 acres of grounds provide plenty of space for walking in the gardens, tennis and croquet. There is a lovely area with fire-pit, gazebo and pretty lights, just ideal for an informal BBQ or drinks party in the warmer months.  And if you really want to wind down the Spa is the perfect place to relax.

This is a wonderful property for exclusive use whether for an informal gathering of friends and family, a special celebration or a rewarding corporate break. From the wellington boots lined up in the porch to the polished boardroom table this venue satisfies everyone
