A shoreside Lake Windermere hotel with an AA Rosette-awarded restaurant - includes breakfast, a three-course dinner on one night and a bottle of prosecco
Charismatic Cumbria and the Lake District is a nature-lover’s paradise, with Lake Windermere the inspiration for many an artist and poet over the centuries. Today, this UNESCO-listed pocket of northwest England retains much of its unspoilt beauty and is home to a string of idyllic lakeside villages, including the lovely Ambleside.
Here you’ll find the aptly named Waterhead Hotel, positioned within toe-dipping distance of the lake’s silken waters. Mixing a traditional Lakeland setting with a modern boutique vibe, this award-winning hotel was voted among the Best Hotels in the Lake District by The Telegraph and has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Wake up to water views from your modern room before tucking into a hearty Cumbrian breakfast to set you up for a shoreside stroll or an invigorating hike up into the fells. A lake cruise is a must-do, sailing over to beautiful Bowness-on-Windermere and back. As a hotel guest, you can also make use of the Health Club at sister hotel Low Wood Bay (a mile away), home to a pool, sauna, steam room and gym. Appetite suitably whetted, you can look forward to an AA Rosette-standard dinner of modern British classics at The Bar & Grill Restaurant.
