Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel


Holbeck is more like a beautiful private home than a hotel, with no two of the richly-appointed rooms the same. Whether you choose to sink into an armchair by the inglenook fireplace with the morning’s newspaper, or rest your fell-weary limbs in one of the sumptuous lounges overlooking the Lake District in all its glory, you’ll find the perfect spot to recharge your batteries.

As well as 13 beautiful rooms and suites in the main house, there are a further 6 exquisite rooms in The Lodge, 2 luxury cottages, two fabulous suites and the splendid Miss Potter suite where Hollywood star Renée Zellweger lived during filming of the movie about Beatrix Potter’s life. Bedrooms enjoy intoxicating views over Windermere that has been voted among the top 15 in the world, decanters of locally-distilled damson gin, fresh flowers, luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and robes, private terraces and even a hot tub or two.

Holbeck Ghyll’s fine dining rooms form the focal-point of most visits to the country house hotel, the supremely talented head chef Jake Jones, has built a reputation around serving the finest, mouth-watering food - locally sourced where possible.

The intimate spa offers a sauna and steam room along with a wide range of soothing ESPA treatments that are simply perfect for relieving stress of day to day life or the effects of a long walk. The heated outdoor hot tub features stunning views across to the Langdales Pikes and Coniston Old Man, perfect for relaxing into at the end of the day.
