More Room Types

Laura Ashley Hotel The Belsfield overlooks Lake Windermere in the popular Lakeland town of Bowness-on-Windermere. The property was built in 1845 for a European aristocrat -- 170 years later it's been refurbished in partnership with Laura Ashley. Expect elegant furnishings, lush fabrics, grand chandeliers and classic designs combined with modern features such as a glass reception area and an indoor pool.

There are two restaurants; the Belsfield Restaurant -- which has an AA Rosette and views of Lake Windermere -- and the Brasserie. Both serve traditional British dishes. There's an extensive wine list, with wines hand-picked by the hotel's buying experts. Guests can have drinks in the Lounge Bar and Drawing Room.

The hotel has 62 bedrooms, each with underfloor heating in the bathrooms, Laura Ashley bathroom products, luxury pillows, Egyptian cotton linens and a jar of local sweets. Wi-Fi is free in all rooms, and most have views of Lake Windermere.

There's plenty to see and do in Bowness-on-Windermere, such as The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, which is five minutes' walk from the hotel, and there are numerous shops in the town centre. The Lakeland Motor Museum is eight miles away.

Alternatively, get a boat from Bowness Pier, opposite the hotel, to Lakeside or Ambleside, or drive to other Lakeland towns like Hawkshead and Grasmere. Hawkshead is particularly special as it's a car-free zone. It's described by Lonely Planet as "a jumble of whitewashed cottages, cobbled lanes and old pubs" and was where poet William Wordsworth went to school.

Travelzoo tip: We've stayed at this hotel; the décor is relaxing, the views of Lake Windermere are spectacular and the staff make it feel like a home from home.
