Surrounded by the Cumbrian mountains, this welcoming 3-star hotel is a foodie destination in its own right. Constructed from natural materials, with plenty of homely touches, it has a rustic-chic vibe -- think home-made biscuits in your room, country-style wood furnishings and local artwork hanging on the walls.
Just off the M6, between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks, the Westmorland is also a convenient stopover for those travelling to or from Scotland, 50 miles away. Popular with nature lovers and walkers, the nearby village of Orton is on routes such as Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk and the Walney to Wear cycle route.
The family-owned business started life as an M6 service station, but its reputation for excellent home-cooked food spread rapidly, and the hotel's restaurant is now one of the area's attractions. A Modern British menu features produce from the family's own farm -- expect the likes of crispy oxtail or smoked cured belly pork. A cosy lounge, with comfortable sofas and a log fire, offers lighter bites such as home-made pies, soups and sandwiches. Guests can also take a little local flavour away with them by visiting the hotel's farm shop, which sells artisan produce, including regional cheeses.
The 50 bright, contemporary rooms and suites offer free Wi-Fi and Freeview TVs, as well as gorgeous views over the Cumbrian fells. Many rooms are dog-friendly, and come with bowls and treats (for a £10 surcharge). Most rates include a full English breakfast.
