Our favourite rooms
Rooms with a view are well worth the extra spend, as you’ll be overlooking the manicured gardens or the lake. If you’re happy to splash, book one of the suites: one has a telescope for stargazing, another has a private hot tub with views across Windermere.
Pack poetry by Wordsworth or Coleridge, two of the Lake District’s most famous inhabitants. The region’s beauty fired their imaginations, and its expansive landscapes often shine through in their poems and writing.
The public areas are wheelchair accessible, but there are no specially adapted rooms.
Dogs can stay for a flat fee of £25, which gets them a bed, bowl and daily treat. There are only three dog-friendly rooms so availability is limited, and they’re only allowed in the room and on the grounds, not in the public areas. See more pet-friendly hotels in Lake District.
All ages are welcome. A cot (free) can be added to any room. Some larger rooms have sofabeds; children under eight stay for free, those aged nine to 16 stay for £25 a night each. Babysitting is available from £15 an hour; two days’ notice is required.
