The Lamplighter Dining Rooms is a family-run property in the town of Windermere. It dates back to 1865, and is built from Lakeland stone.
Windermere, "the queen of Lake District lakes" (Lonely Planet), is a 15-minute walk away. We recommend the short hike up Orrest Head for superb views of the of Lake Windermere, the Lake District Fells, Morecambe Bay and the Pennines. Bowness-on-Windermere is 5 minutes by car, Ambleside is a 15-minute drive away
National Trust-run Hill Top, the house Beatrix Potter bought with the royalties from her books, is 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dove Cottage, where poet William Wordsworth lived, is a 20-minute drive in Grasmere. You can take a guided tour of the house and gardens, and visit The Wordsworth Museum, which displays his original letters, journals and poems.
The hotel's restaurant serves traditional British dishes, and is a North West finalist in the 2019 Restaurant Awards. The Observer's critic Jay Rayner is a fan of the "glorious" bone-on rib of beef and a "magnificent" cauliflower cheese, which are served at Sunday lunch. The bar stocks local ales, wine and more than 15 varieties of gin. There is a roaring fire in the winter.
In keeping with the 19th-century building, bedrooms have a Victorian look, with striped wallpaper and polished-wood beds. All have renovated bathrooms.
