"Holbeck Ghyll is totally stunning all round" -- Square Meal

Why We Love It

  • The property offers top-notch food and views of Lake Windermere to match 
  • Dishes in the restaurant have "tempering robust flavours with elegant presentation", says Square Meal
  • Previous guests include Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, who filmed an episode of BBC's "The Trip" here
  • The hotel has been awarded four AA Red Stars for outstanding levels of hospitality and service
  • We've also negotiated an afternoon tea for two, for £32.50


Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel is a former hunting lodge perched above Lake Windermere. It's got accolades galore, including a Michelin Guide-listed restaurant and four AA Red Stars.

On top of that there's a spa with a sauna and a steam room, a gym, a boutique store and a helicopter landing pad (on request) in case driving isn't your style.

Eating here is a treat -- expect fresh bread and pastries, fruit, cereals, smoked haddock and local free-range eggs for breakfast. For dinner in the oak-panelled restaurant, "foodie heaven is dished up on a plate", says Condé Nast Johansens. There's an extensive wine list, which was awarded two out of three stars by The World of Fine Wine in 2017, and almost 50 variations of whisky. Port, champagne and cocktails are also on offer.

Bedrooms are split across the main house, The Lodge, which has inter-connecting and dog-friendly rooms, and two cottages. The Miss Potter suite has an outdoor hot tub and is where Renée Zellweger stayed while filming the 2006 movie "Miss Potter".

The hotel is a great base from which to explore the local area -- it's halfway between Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, and the town of Windermere is around five minutes away by car. Dove Cottage, a 15-minute drive away, is where poet William Wordsworth lived from 1799-1808, when he wrote most of his poems. You can take a guided tour of the house and gardens, and visit The Wordsworth Museum, which displays his original letters, journals and poems.

Brockhole -- The Lake District Visitor Centre, is a 5-minute drive from the hotel and is a family-focused attraction with landscaped Arts and Crafts gardens, an adventure playground and mini golf, plus bike and boat hire.

Stayed in Lodge 6 (Jeremy Fisher) - washbasin needs replacing due to huge crack across it. Not hygienic and not what you would expect from a hotel of this standard. Otherwise a lovely stay.

Whilst the Travelzoo deal (2 nights in a Luxury Room including 1 dinner) was great value, it would have been nice to see some better value wines on the restaurant wine list.

The staff were great. They just got stuck into different roles when needed whether it be waiting tables, reception or shovelling snow so that guests could get out! We were waited on by Tom who was particularly helpful throughout our stay which really made us feel welcome and truly made our stay a great one.
