A former Edwardian gentlemen's residence set in five acres of landscaped grounds in the heart of the Lake District, The Ryebeck Country House & Restaurant is a VisitEngland 3-star hotel with sweeping views of Lake Windermere.

The hotel is a short drive from 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.
