Stunning lakeside location

Beautiful landscaped gardens and woodlands


With great sadness we have to announce that Lake District Country Hotels are temporarily closing our doors until it is safe for us to re-open.  

This is a challenging period for all of us. It’s only by looking out for each other that we can get through this and come out of the other side, stronger and in good shape. 

We value the warm and lasting relationships we have built up with our guests and wedding couples. We look forward to resuming our normal service as soon as possible when we are able to welcome you all back to Lake District Country Hotels.

For wedding couples who have a wedding booked between April-June, we will be contacting you directly over the next few days.  If your wedding date falls after that date, or if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to call us.

For guests who have bookings with us during this period, we will be in touch to discuss alternative options.

Although the hotels will be closed, we will be contactable by phone throughout this time and we will re-evaluate the situation week, by week.

For now, we would like to thank all our wonderful guests who have supported us and our amazing team who work so hard to make our hotels the amazing places they are.

Stay safe, stay at home, look after each other and we very much look forward to welcoming you back.

With the warmest of wishes

Roger, Albert and Robert, Hotel Managers
