Another Place - The Lake

Penrith, Cumbria

Family-friendly hotel on Ullswater with a cool pool and stylish rooms – swim in the lake, walk in the hills, come home for super food


40 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 5


This is a fantastic renovation of a fine old Lakeland hotel. It sits on Ullswater in 18 beautiful acres that roll down to the shore. Both house and water offer lots to do. You can paddle board on the lake, jump in for a swim, or set off to explore in a kayak. If that sounds too hectic, head back to the house for sofas to sink into and an indoor pool where walls of glass frame the view. The main building dates to 1714 and comes with ornate ceilings, marble fireplaces, the odd panelled wall. You’ll find an airy restaurant for super food, a chic library with books and games, then sofas and banquettes in the ‘living space,’ where you can stop to eat, chill out by the fire, or slip onto the sun-trapping terrace, where views shoot across the lake to mountains soaring beyond. There’s a gym, a hot tub, a sauna and treatment rooms, then forest school for kids. Rooms – some coolly traditional, others warmly contemporary – have fine beds, the best linen, robes in smart bathrooms. Most have the view, some have baths that look the right way. There’s a kitchen garden, a croquet lawn, and wellies at the front door, too.
