A traditional, newly refurbished hotel in a beautiful Lake District setting, with a two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant - includes breakfast and three-course dinner, plus tea and scones on arrival

Few hotels can boast their own waterfall, but somewhere in its 40 acres of private land, Lodore Falls Hotel has ticked that too-often-empty box. Overlooking the beautiful Derwentwater Lake, where imposing mountain ranges are mirrored in the glassy water, this stately TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-awarded retreat is everything you could want from a stay in the Lake District.

This family-run hotel has recently renovated its entire ground floor, whilst retaining the heritage of the original building, which is forged out of Lakeland slate. Interiors incorporate contemporary furniture with plush fabrics, plenty of soft seats for guests to sink into after a long walk, and a library area designed specifically to cater for guests with dogs. The local landscapes are evoked in the stylish colour scheme, with soft green, burnt orange and aubergine making the edit.

Besides exploring the stunning National Park, the leisure options here are plentiful - and should your dramatic surrounds tempt you, wander out on the wooden pier and hire a sailboat, or kayak for a peaceful way to absorb the scenery. The perfect way to round off a day of exploration? Dining at the two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant, which serves us classic gourmet dishes crafted from the best local produce alongside impressive lake views.

Good to know

Please be aware that the hotel's leisure facilities and spa will be closed until Summer 2018. During this time, the building works area will be fenced off and, whilst the majority of the hotel will not be affected, there will be intermittent noise throughout.

Please also note that the waterfall cannot be accessed from the hotel grounds at present, but can be reached via a short stroll.
