"A former Victorian Italianate mansion which sits regally above majestic Lake Windermere" -- The Star (Sheffield)

Why We Love It

  • It reopened in July, 2014, after a multimillion-pound refurbishment and collaboration with the Laura Ashley brand
  • The hotel is a Grade II-listed Victorian building with views across Lake Windermere
  • There's a cocktail bar and two restaurants


Laura Ashley Hotel The Belsfield overlooks Lake Windermere in the popular Lakeland town of Bowness-on-Windermere. The property was built in 1845 for a European aristocrat -- 170 years later it's been refurbished in partnership with Laura Ashley. Expect elegant furnishings, lush fabrics, grand chandeliers and classic designs combined with modern features such as a glass reception area and an indoor pool.

There are two restaurants: the Belsfield Restaurant -- which has an AA Rosette and views of Lake Windermere -- and the Brasserie. Both serve traditional British dishes. There's an extensive wine list, with wines hand-picked by the hotel's buying experts. Guests can have drinks in the Lounge Bar and Drawing Room.

The hotel has 62 bedrooms, each with underfloor heating in the bathrooms, Laura Ashley bathroom products, luxury pillows, Egyptian cotton linens and a jar of local sweets. Wi-Fi is free in all rooms, and most have views of Lake Windermere.

There's plenty to see and do in Bowness-on-Windermere. The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, five minutes' walk from the hotel, and there are numerous shops in the town centre. The Lakeland Motor Museum is eight miles away.

Boat services run from Bowness Pier, opposite the hotel, to Lakeside or Ambleside. Grasmere, Cumbria’s most popular village thanks to William Wordsworth, is 17 minutes drive from the hotel or 40 minutes via bus. Hawkshead is approximately 30 minutes' drive away including a ferry crossing which runs every 20 minutes. Hawkshead is particularly special as it's a car-free zone. It's described by Lonely Planet as "a jumble of whitewashed cottages, cobbled lanes and old pubs" and was where poet William Wordsworth went to school.

We've stayed at this hotel; the décor is relaxing, the views of Lake Windermere are spectacular and the staff make it feel like a home from home.

The public areas are fantastic and our room was great too. A really peaceful two days. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Ideally placed for Bowness and the steamer. Recommend without reservation.
