Escape to the shores of Ullswater Lake with a fabulous stay at a new Lake District retreat, including full Cumbrian breakfast, three-course dinner, and choice of accommodation


Having already made headlines as one of the coolest Lake District stays since opening last year, this unique retreat is the latest offering from the team behind Watergate Bay – Cornwall’s too-cool beach hotel that’s a huge hit with surfers. And while the vibe is remarkably similar (the same focus on “active relaxation” for starters), the setting – on the shores of Ullswater Lake and surrounded by the UNESCO-listed Lake District National Park – couldn’t be more different.

Varying in size and layout, the welcoming guest rooms and suites are located in either the Georgian building or the new contemporary wing. Both the Standard room and the larger Better room have a double bed (some have twins), Ruark Bluetooth radio, complimentary Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, and a bathroom. The more spacious Suite and Better Family suite have more upgraded facilities (some have balconies, four-poster beds, and roll top baths).

With a focus on fresh, seasonal, and locally-sourced cuisine, the signature Rampsbeck Restaurant delights with excellent breakfasts (pastries, freshly squeezed juices, yoghurt, smoothies, organic muesli, cereals, smoked salmon, deli meats, bagels, omelettes, DIY waffles) and memorable dinners (Herdwick lamb, Morecambe Bay shrimp, Cumbrian flat iron steak, and Plancha sea bass).

For a less formal dining experience, The Living Space offers a bold and distinctive menu (fried squid, burgers and fries, mussels, salads, fresh pasta, doorstep sandwiches) as well as champagne, coffee, cocktails, and a great selection of gins. The hotel can prepare packed lunches for on-the-go guests. Room service also is available.


The hotel’s take on a spa, the Swim Club is a collection of secluded spaces where you can bliss out or get active. There’s a good-looking 20-metre indoor pool with beautiful views, an outdoor hot tub, a sauna, two private treatment rooms (one of which is a double) for a selection of customised facials, massages, scrubs, and wraps, and a relaxation snug for manicures and pedicures. Equally stand-out is the cardio room complete with a matrix hybrid cross-trainer and rowing machine, treadmill, fitness bike, free weights, medicine balls, and yoga mats. The Swim Club is open daily. Please note that all treatments are chargeable.


Set on the shores of Ullswater and surrounded by 18 acres of Lake District National Park, there’s no shortage of things to see and do. For outdoorsy types, you'll have the chance to take to the water with an on site paddle board or kayak lesson on the lake. Alternatively, spend your time taking it all in with a cruise one of the famous Ullswater Steamers, visiting the spectacular Aira Force waterfall, taking off-road cycle rides, and getting stuck into quad biking, rock climbing, fell walking, and birdwatching.

Further area highlights include historic Lowther Castle, the cultural Rheged Centre, the market town of Penrith for its King Arthur’s Round Table earthwork and Penrith Castle ruins, Ulverston for its fascinating Laurel and Hardy Museum, and Sawrey for Beatrix Potter’s home at Hill Top. Another Place, The Lake is a 20-minute taxi ride from Penrith train station (the journey from London Euston is three hours). The nearest airports are Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Manchester.
