Holbeck Ghyll Hotel Cumbria

“Luxurious former Hunting Lodge overlooking Lake Windermere makes for an intimate hideaway. Classically styled rooms offer comfort and views. Michelin starred food and an extensive wine list welcome you at the dining room. Whether enjoying the spa or exploring the grounds - relaxing is on the cards!”

“A luxury country house hotel with spectacular views of Windermere, Holbeck Ghyll is a haven of lakeside tranquility. The interior reveals cosy sitting rooms, oak panelling and roaring open fires, along with 23 super-smart bedrooms. A boutique health spa and an award winning Michelin-starred restaurant make Holback Ghyll perfect for a private Lake-District getaway. This is where Renée Zellweger and other cast members stayed while filming Miss Potter, and you can stay in the spoiling Beatrix Potter suite, with large private balcony and hot tub.”

Holbeck Ghyll Hotel

"Inside, it's like a dream of posh, Country Living-mag rusticity, from the blazing log fire and the Parker Knoll chairs in the lobby to the woven Bergerac furniture and the biographies of Tory politicians in the sitting-room. "

Is this the Lake District's most charming hotel?

"From the canapés served in the Edwardian sitting room to the series of artfully presented dishes in the panelled dining room, it was a seamless ride."
