Lake District

A boutique stay in Cumbria’s unspoilt Lyth Valley, on the edge of the UNESCO-listed Lake District, including breakfast and a suite option

Flaunting its fabulously new good looks following a recent revamp, this little rural hideaway offers plenty to please stressed-out urbanites wanting to slow down the pace a bit. Interiors aside, this boutique hideaway has a splendid setting in the Lyth Valley – a 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 promises stunning views of the woodland, the Lyth Valley or the majestic limestone outcrops of Scout Scar. With luxe linens, Cowshed goodies and chic decor that seamlessly blends Calvin Klein rugs and Laura Ashley wallpaper with charming vintage pieces, the rooms and suites here leave no stone unturned when it comes to finishing touches.

Days here 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, which was recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Post-sightseeing, head back to the hotel to savour ingredient-driven modern British cuisine at the oak-panelled signature restaurant – or sample local ale from the hotel’s own brewery.
