Our favourite rooms
Designer James Mackie perfected the contemporary country look throughout, but for a room with a postcard-perfect view, the Superb is, well, just that. Coveting the cushy Wools of Cumbria carpet as you pad around the room? Admire the source as you gaze out at the Herdwick sheep roaming in the meadow.
Bring a composition notebook for writing verse as the Lake poets did.
A room designed for guests with mobility issues and their assistance dogs is available on request. Also, the restaurant, bar and guest lounge are all wheelchair accessible.
Well-behaved pups are are welcome in six designated rooms in the north wing for £20. The dog-loving staff will greet Fido with a bed, food and water bowls, treats and a personalised letter (for literate labs, of course). See more pet-friendly hotels in Lake District.
