A quintessentially English country house hotel on Lake Ullswater, with an award-winning restaurant – includes breakfast, dinner and a cream tea

  • Traditional, picturesque and thoroughly English, the Inn on the Lake is an idyllic hotel set in the glorious surrounds of the Lake District. With the imposing Helvellyn mountain as a backdrop and the vast Lake Ullswater at the foot of the grounds, there's hardly a better spot in the country for a few days of crisp, clean air.

  • The family-run inn boasts an enormous amount of space, not least because of its own 15 acres of beautifully tended gardens. Spend your days soaking up the ever-changing scenes of Lake Ullswater – the perfect backdrop to a romantic walk – all before cosying up by the fire in one of the lounges.

  • There are a handful of wellness facilities to make the most of here, including a Jacuzzi, sauna and small gym – just enough to ease your muscles at the end of an outdoorsy day, or to start working off all that scrumptious, award-winning food.

  • The hotel features both formal and informal dining options. The highly praised Lake View Restaurant has two AA Rosettes and serves refined yet comforting dishes, or for more informal dining, head to the airy Orangery or the Ramblers Bar & Candleroom. The Lake View Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy your homemade cream scone and tea.

  • While Standard rooms don't come with a view, they are comfortable and equipped with all the amenities you'll need for a pleasant stay, including luxury Sealy beds and en-suite bathrooms. Fell View rooms feature charming views of Helvellyn and the larger Lake View rooms look out towards the beautiful Lake Ullswater.

On the shores of Lake Ullswater and at the foot of the Helvellyn mountain range, this is one of the most picturesque locations imaginable. Long walks will take you past waterfalls, fells, woodland, valleys and, of course, the occasional olde worlde pub. At reception, you can arrange to go sailing on the lake, visit nearby Ullswater 'Steamers' or visit the local National Trust sites, like Aira Force, just two miles from the hotel. Unsurprisingly, the inn has garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
