Set on sprawling, picturesque grounds with a private jetty on the Lake Windermere waterfront, this traditional hotel occupies a grand Georgian mansion. It’s within 3.6 miles’ drive from the A591 and National Rail trains at Windermere.
The ornate, period-style rooms feature antique furnishings, free Wi-Fi and flat-screen smart TVs. Upgraded rooms add armoires, chaise lounges or sofas, and desks or vanity tables. Private log cabins have kitchens.
Modern British cuisine is served in a formal restaurant, plus there’s an ornate lounge bar. Afternoon tea or picnic baskets can be taken on a lawn overlooking the lake (fees apply).
