Why We Love This Hotel

  • This Victorian-era guesthouse is a few minutes' walk from Windermere town centre and 15 minutes' walk from the lake
  • Blackwell House, "a glorious example of the Arts & Crafts movement" (Lonely Planet), is a 10-minute drive away
  • There's a cosy guest lounge and a conservatory where breakfast is served

Set on a tree-lined road, The Ravensworth occupies "an elegant, Lakeland stone building" (Frommer's), dating from the 1850s. It is five minutes' drive, or a 15-minute walk, from the shores of Windermere, "the queen of Lake District lakes" (Lonely Planet).

The World of Beatrix Potter, with its 3D depictions of the author's work, is a 5-minute drive away, while you can walk to the summit of Orrest Head in around 30 minutes for views along the lake. Blackwell, a landmark Arts and Crafts house, is about 10 minutes' drive away, and Ullswater, with its lake cruises, takes 30 minutes to reach by car.

The Ravensworth has bright, homely interiors, which include a guest lounge with leather sofas and a library stocked with local walking guides. Guests can start the day with a buffet breakfast in the conservatory (served from 8:15-9:30am), which is lined with exposed stone, and relax with a drink on the terrace after a day of hiking or sightseeing. 

The 11 "charming" (Frommer's) bedrooms feature warm décor in neutral tones with wood furnishings and patterned fabrics. All come with free Wi-Fi, TVs, DVD players and iPod docks, as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Our room was small but adequate - we would return but perhaps opt for superior room

The tea and sandwiches on arrival.

The room was a bit tired looking and the choice of food at breakfast was limited. Not a piece of fruit to be seen.
