$196 – 2-night Lake District getaway with dinner, was $469
Escape to The Whitewater Hotel & Leisure Club, a converted Victorian cotton mill in the village of Backbarrow, by the surging River Leven. Two-night stays are now $196 -- half the usual price -- and include:
- Two nights' accommodation in a Standard Room, with daily full Cumbrian breakfast and a 3-course dinner (on the first night only), for two
- It's $230 to stay in a Classic Room and $265 to stay in an Executive Room
Why We Love It
- The hotel is a converted cotton mill with river views
- Leisure facilities include an Elemis spa, a heated swimming pool, a sauna and a Jacuzzi. There are also tennis and squash courts
- Bowness-on-Windermere Pier, for Lake Windermere boat trips, is less than 20 minutes' drive away. Coniston Water is around 30 minutes' drive
- Whitbarrow Nature Reserve, known for its idyllic landscape of limestone crags with a woodland backdrop, is around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel
Located beside the River Leven, The Whitewater Hotel & Leisure Club is surrounded by mountain fells and picturesque river villages. You'll be less than five minutes' drive from the southern shores of Windermere, England's largest lake.
Lakeland Motor Museum is a few minutes' walk from the hotel, and Lakeland Miniature Village is 15 minutes' drive away. Bowness-on-Windermere Pier, for Lake Windermere boat trips, is less than 20 minutes' drive. We recommend the cruise from Bowness to Ambleside -- the village is around 20 minutes' walk from Ambleside Pier, and from there you can follow the signs to see the 70-foot-high waterfall Stock Ghyll Force.
Lakeside & Haverthwaite line -- a preserved steam-train railway running through picturesque countryside -- is 15 minutes' walk from the hotel, while Whitbarrow Nature Reserve and Coniston Water are both less than 30 minutes' drive. A popular destination for hiking and walking, the Old Man of Coniston -- a fell that's over 2000 feet high -- is a 50-minute drive away.
The hotel's Cascades Health Spa & Fitness Club has a heated indoor pool, a Turkish hammam, an Arabian mud temple, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, a gym and tennis and squash courts (all leisure facilities including the spa will be closed 8-18 January).
The Riverside Restaurant offers a fine-dining menu, while The Dolly Blue Bar & Grill -- named after the pigment formerly created within the mill -- offers casual dining.
