“With a series of low-lying, traditional-slate buildings dotted around a forested estate, this hotel feels a world away from the Lake District’s tourist honeypots. Tucked in the Langdale Valley, it’s close to some great walking yet both Ambleside and Coniston are within a 15-minute drive.”

Hotel Overview

“Formerly a gunpowder factory for the local mining industry, the estate has the feel of a small, country resort. Buildings blend into the natural environs of trees and streams, although their interiors have a funky, metropolitan style with bright colours, velvet sofas and retro-style chairs. The bedrooms - most a short walk from the restaurant building - are roomy with bold, modern styling, purple and charcoal colours, and bright-white bathrooms. Some of the top rooms overlook a stream from private balconies or are sexy affairs with huge bathrooms, vast beds and sometimes slipper-baths in the bedroom.
There’s a large indoor pool, glamorous spa - with thermal experience - and walks from the doorstep. The all-day restaurant is bright and modern with a wide choice from steaks to pizzas. A good choice whether for a chill-out or action-packed weekend.”
