Tucked inside a 19th-century stone mansion overlooking Lake Windermere, this sophisticated hotel is a 5-minute walk from The World of Beatrix Potter.
The 26 refined rooms (available on a B&B or half-board basis) feature flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffeemaking facilities; some also have lake views. Upgraded rooms add sitting areas. Room service is available.
Featuring a grand piano, cosy lounges and views of the countryside, the white-tablecloth bar/restaurant serves free breakfast daily, along with traditional British cuisine, and a carvery lunch on Sundays. Off-street parking is available.
