Holbeck Ghyll



Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel is a small luxury hotel offering spectacular views of Lake Windermere and the Lakeland Fells. The chic country style works well in this stunning natural setting, as do the more contemporary additions with their simple, inviting decor. Guests can either stay in the Main House, or for a little more privacy, stay in one of the rooms and suites in the grounds. The area is great for walking, hiking and cycling and after a rejuvenating trip in the fresh Cumbrian air, guests can return for some pampering in the Holbeck Ghyll Health Spa. To round off a perfect day, indulge in the fine cuisine of their award winning restaurant before retiring to bed for a wonderful night's sleep. This gorgeous retreat was recently chosen as the setting for a film with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon due to the great location and interiors.


The Lake District has been an inspiration to some of Britain's finest artists and poets, and you need only stroll down to the lake to experience the dramatic beauty of this beautiful corner of England. Majestic mountains, glimmering waters and lush greenery abound, and guests will certainly be drawn to walk, cycle, hike or drive around the pretty landscape. Take a cruise across one of the many lakes, visit the local villages for afternoon tea and some shopping or take a day out to play some golf. There are some great spots for mountaineering close by and fishing and pony trekking can be arranged.

On the Holbeck Ghyll grounds, guests can explore the vast gardens or head to the Holbeck Ghyll Health Spa, which has a sauna, steam room, power shower, relaxation room and outdoor hot tub and a good menu of beauty treatments, massages and holistic therapies. For those who would rather exercise outdoors, there is an all-weather tennis court, croquet lawn, putting green and jogging trail. By evening, guests can cosy up in the plump armchairs of the lounges by an open-fire with a glass of fine wine from Holbeck Ghyll's award-winning wine list.


Dine in the majestic Oak-Panelled dining room, Terrace dining room, or on the outside terrace to enjoy the lake and mountain views - the perfect setting for lunch or dinner. The menu offers a mix of English and French cuisine with dishes such as Roast Squab Pigeon with Chouchroute and Madeira Sauce, Roasted Brill with Apple, Potato, Celery and Cider Foam and for pudding, Nougat Glace with Passion Fruit Sorbet and Mango Parcels. Vegetarians need not be disheartened; there are some great meat-free options such as Gallete of Soused Vegetables with Asparagus and White Bean Velouté. With over 280 wines on the list, with one to suit any price range, guests can enjoy wines from all over the world. For breakfast, stock up with a hearty full English and croissants, fresh fruit, yoghurt, mueslis, cereals, dried fruit and nuts and fresh fruit juices from the buffet.
