This smart Victorian residence is set in delightful gardens leading to the fells, and is just a short drive from the lake. The individually designed bedrooms are stylish and a number benefit from private terraces; all are spacious and thoughtfully equipped, and each has a private sitting room. In addition there are luxury Garden Suites that lead onto private gardens with cedar-wood hot tubs. The welcoming atmosphere is notable and the attractive day rooms are perfect for relaxing, perhaps beside a real fire. Eating in any of the quartet of dining rooms is a must. The Lake House situated a mile from the main hotel offers an additional six suites, spa and stunning lakeside views.
