True period romance in a charming Laura Ashley hotel on Lake Windermere, with breakfast and optional dinner


The Belsfield cleverly balances the old with the new, with the cream and white Victorian-meets-Italianate masterpiece serenely set in landscaped gardens right on the shores of Lake Windermere. Step through the glass reception area with its sweeping lake views to find yourself in one sleek and contemporary building. The rest of the property, however, is perfectly on point with its period design with small splashes of modernity thrown in.

Immerse yourself in swish, contemporary Laura Ashley style in the Classic rooms, which utilise the brand's furniture and bathroom products and follow three different decor themes. The beds are deliciously comfortable, with luxury mattresses, down duvets and Egyptian cotton linen.

High moulded plaster ceilings, paintings, chandeliers and mirrors all make for a true sense of occasion in the Belsfield Restaurant. Plush raised banquette areas and huge windows make the most of the fabulous lake view. Expect a fusion of classic British and nouvelle cuisine, with an emphasis on seasonal produce. For more casual dining, there's the bright Brasserie.


Within the heart of the Lake District National Park (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the hotel is in Bowness, on the eastern shore of Windermere – the park's largest lake. It overlooks the aptly named 'Belle Isle', with Langdale Pike (often snow-capped in winter) and the Fairfield Horseshoe in the distance.

Historic sites of interest include the Neolithic Stone Circle at Castlerigg, the Bronze Age settlement at Threlkeld and the Roman fort at Hardknott Pass which makes for one of England's most spectacular drives. Know that you are following in the footsteps of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, who both spent time in the area.
