A family-run hotel in the Lake District, with splendid views of Windermere - includes breakfast, dinner and optional lake views

With an elevated position above the wooded shores of Lake Windermere, Hillthwaite House Hotel is all about fresh air, superb food and awe-instilling views. Set in its own pretty gardens with a terrace at the fore, this wholesome country bolthole is the perfect place to take a little time out with an indoor pool and a sauna on hand.

Within walking distance of quaint Windermere and Bowness, you have the opportunity to explore the Lake District's picturesque natural scenery, oak-floored inns and rustic-cool gastro pubs. Tuck into local produce while ensconced in smart booths in the restaurant, or enjoy a relaxing time on the scenic terrace or in the lounge - which feels like a quintessential English sitting room, ideal for taking stock with a cup of tea and a love-worn book. Hillthwaite House Hotel carried off a well-deserved TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
