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 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.

The 2-AA-Rosette Lake View Restaurant showcases locally sourced produce, and there is a cosy lounge offering classic afternoon teas. Both the restaurant and the lounge have lake views.

Everything, mostly impressed with how helpful the staff were, they let us eat dinner after closing time because we have a baby & lost track of time. Also they made breakfast to takeaway on last day before breakfast opened at 8am because we had an early appointment. They were friendly, relaxed. Hotel was in a great location.

I booked this as an anniversary gift for my parents and they cannot say enough positive comments about The Rybeck. From check in to check out they had an amazing experience, lovely room, outstanding views and a breakfast to die for. They also said the evening meals they had in the restaurant were exquisite.

If I go back I'll do what I did first time and pay the extra to book one of the best rooms -'grand' . This was a superb (room 9), great view , fabulous spa bath, but hard bed (even with a topper), small telly (for room size). Can't, as ever, fault the staff. They are very good and go the extra to make sure you are happy.
