A former Edwardian gentlemen's residence set in five acres of landscaped grounds in the heart of the Lake District, The Ryebeck hotel is a VisitBritain 3-star hotel with sweeping views of Lake Windermere. 

The village of Bowness, which has shops, restaurants, tea rooms and boat trips on the lake, is 25 minutes' walk away. The hotel is a short drive from Ambleside, Wordsworth's Dove Cottage in Grasmere, Beatrix Potter's Hill Top house and Holehird Gardens, home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society. The surrounding Lake District countryside is ideal for hiking, cycling and other outdoor pursuits.

This deluxe country-house property showcases locally sourced produce on the restaurant's Classic and Ryebeck menus, and there's a cosy lounge offering classic afternoon teas. Both the restaurant and the lounge have lake views.

All 26 rooms come with views of Lake Windermere or the landscaped gardens, with ground-floor rooms offering direct access on to the terrace.

Guests have complimentary access to a local leisure centre with a swimming pool, a sauna and a Jacuzzi. Windermere Golf Club is one mile away.
