Inn on the Square 

Location: Keswick  
Why we love it: This chic hotel, housed in a Georgian property on Keswick’s Market Square, opened in June, 2015, and has been attracting rave reviews since day one. Just a 10-minute walk from Derwentwater, it has a distinctly Scandinavian air, with Cumbrian-made beds and rain showers in all of its 34 rooms. The Brossen Steakhouse specialises in dry-aged steaks served with sides such as roasted bone marrow, beef-dripping chips or truffled mac and cheese.

Hillthwaite House Hotel

Location: Windermere  
Why we love it: This family-run favourite, just 15 minutes’ walk from Bowness-on-Windermere, started life over 40 years ago as a 6-bedroom private house. Despite numerous extensions and additions (including an indoor pool with sauna and steam room), it retains a cosy, boutique feel. Views are the focal point in the restaurant, where locally sourced ingredients take pride of place on the traditional menu. Other top-notch facilities include a recently refurbished indoor pool, a sauna and steam room.

Laura Ashley the Belsfield 

Where: Bowness-on-Windermere
Why we love it: This listed Victorian property reopened in July, 2014, after a multimillion-pound refurbishment and collaboration with Laura Ashley. That means you can expect elegant furnishings, lush fabrics, grand chandeliers and classic designs combined with modern features such as a glass reception area. There’s also an indoor pool, a stylish cocktail bar, two restaurants and, as you can see from the main picture at the top of this page, some spectacular views over Windermere.

Ravenstone Lodge 

Location: Keswick
Why we love it: This converted 19th-century lodge in the Northern Lakes has sweeping views of the fells, an AA-Rosette restaurant and nine individually styled rooms. Each one is named after a local fell (for example, Randel Crag, Ullock Pike) and all feature en-suite bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Some rooms have 4-poster beds. This area of the Lakes is best known for its mountain scenery and variety of walking routes – the hotel is close to Bassenthwaite Lake and sits at the foot of Ullock Pike.Lake District Boutique Hotels: Ravenstone ManorClick here to search by date.

The Cranleigh Boutique 

Location: Bowness-on-Windermere, Lake District
Why we love it: This trendy property is in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere, and about a minute’s casual stroll from the shore of the lake itself. The exterior might be traditional enough, but inside it’s a different story, with bright, bold décor, lush fabrics and eye-catching wallpaper.  

We’ve found availability throughout May and June, with rates starting at £70 per room, per night. Click here to find out more.
