Classic room

True period romance in a charming Laura Ashley hotel on Lake Windermere in the stunning Lake District

  • Refurbished throughout by designer Kay Cullen, the Laura Ashley Hotel – The Belsfield offers high-ceilinged public rooms, which benefit from all the attention to detail you would expect. Think archive prints, cheerful accents and classic furniture, especially in the grand drawing room and library. For nightcaps, head to the elegant lounge bar.

  • Intricate paintings, chandeliers and mirrors all make for a true sense of occasion while you’re eating in the Belsfield Restaurant. Plush raised banquette areas and huge windows make the most of the fabulous lake views, and there’s a fusion of classic British and nouvelle cuisine, with an emphasis on tasty seasonal produce.

  • Breath in the freshest of Windermere air and drink in the lush greenery from the garden terrace. If you’re looking to get active, don’t miss a chance to lace up the hiking boots and explore some of the national park’s most famous peaks. The hotel also has a mini gym for those keen to squeeze in a workout.
