A tranquil Lake District stay at an Edwardian country house hotel, recommended by the Telegraph - includes breakfast, two-course dinner and prosecco

  • The Leathes Head offers an Edwardian country house escape in the blissfully tranquil surroundings of Cumbria's Lake District. Carefully renovated and exquisitely decorated, the estate retains its historic charm while accommodating for contemporary living. 

  • Proudly holding two AA Rosettes, Leathes Head restaurant is popular with locals and visitors alike. Expect a tempting selection of locally sourced (and even wild-foraged) produce on the classic-meets-modern menu. Elsewhere, the newly refurbished bar is great for a nightcap. 

  • Located in the heart of the Peak District and close to the Derwent water, this retreat is perfect for nature lovers. Meander along hiking trails, marvel at dramatic landscapes or simply spot local wildlife and birds from the cosy conservatory, garden terrace or your bedroom window.

The nearest village is Grange, less than five minutes away. It's a 20-minute walk from the southern tip of Derwent Water, and just over four miles from the pretty market town of Keswick, nestled below looming Skiddaw peak.
