Stay at a glorious 19th-century country pile with a two AA Rosette restaurant in the heart of the Lake District – includes breakfast and dinner

  • There's a high focus on finery at this gracious 19th-century country pile in Ullswater – the lesser-known Lake District gem that’s most celebrated for its year-round Steamer cruises, prestigious yacht club, outdoorsy pursuits and all-out scenic splendour.

  • Set among 22 acres of landscaped gardens and woodlands on the shores of Lake Ullswater, the hotel's chic set-up is made to impress. But it’s not just about the helicopter landing pad, croquet lawn and vintage-luxe design - there’s also an award-winning two AA Rosette restaurant, lovely lounges for light bites and afternoon teas, and an excellent staff service – all making for a most inviting country escape. Unsurprisingly, the hotel was shortlisted for the Afternoon Tea of the Year award by Hotel F&B Magazine.

  • While there is no on-site spa, guests may use the pool, spa and gym at the property’s nearby sister hotel – Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa – on Lake Windermere. There are plenty of soothing spa treatments on offer there, all of which are chargeable and must be pre-booked.
