A boutique stay at renovated hotel in Cumbria’s unspoilt Lyth Valley on the edge of the Lake District, including breakfast and a suite option

Flaunting its fabulously new good looks following a recent 18-month revamp, this little rural hideaway offers plenty to please stressed-out urbanites wanting to slow down the pace a bit. Most standout, though, is its splendid setting in the Lyth Valley – the hidden corner of Cumbria that’s most famous for its damson trees, orchards and jam-makers.

There are just nine unique rooms and suites, each of which assures stunning views of the woodland, the Lyth Valley or the majestic limestone outcrops of Scout Scar. All come with a comfy bed dressed with luxe linens and all the little touches you could need for a luxurious stay, from indulgent Cowshed goodies to boutique-chic décor that mixes up Calvin Klein rugs and Laura Ashley wallpaper with charming vintage pieces.
Days can be spent cruising around Lake Windermere, visiting the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness-on-Windermere, and soaking up all the scenic delights of the dazzling Lake District. Post-sightseeing, head back to the hotel to savour ingredient-driven modern British cuisine at the oak-panelled signature restaurant – or else sink a couple of pints of ale from the hotel’s own brewery.
