Why We Love This Hotel

  • The hotel is in five acres of landscaped grounds with panoramic views of Lake Windermere
  • This former Edwardian gentlemen's residence is close to Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and the Lake District fells
  • The 2-AA-Rosette Ryebeck Brasserie serves classic British dishes

"The restaurant is amazing, the food is heavenly and the views beautiful. Easy to walk into Bowness and the setting is lovely and peaceful. We haven’t stayed since 2008 and it has not changed, highly recommended."

The Ryebeck is a former Edwardian gentlemen's residence with sweeping views of Lake Windermere.

It is set in five acres of landscaped grounds, 25 minutes' walk from the village of Bowness-on-Windermere, which has shops, restaurants, tea rooms and boat trips on the lake.

The deluxe country house hotel is within a 30-minute drive of 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.

The 2-AA-Rosette Ryebeck Brasserie showcases locally sourced produce, and its head chef, Nick Edgar, was voted Cumbria Life Chef of the Year 2017 and has also previously been awarded a Michelin-star. There is a cosy lounge offering classic afternoon teas and both the restaurant and the lounge have lake views.

The spectacular views over Windermere from the hotel gardens
Other Comments
Would suggest that somewhere you put that the spectacular views are paid for by it being quite a hike down into Bowness itself for less able travellers..

Other Comments
It would probably be nice if staff were to wear uniform rather than casual wear although perhaps that is what the owners of the hotel wish their staff to wear.
