Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel

Windermere, Cumbria

Perfect food to a perfect backdrop.


If the cracking view overlooking Lake Windermere isn’t enough to attract you to this place, then how about the Michelin-starred restaurant?  One look at the menu will have you praying for ‘Lake District weather’ – giving you an excuse to snuggle up indoors sampling dishes like roasted scallops with spiced cauliflower, and apple and raisin pureé. 

Originally a hunting lodge, Holbeck Ghyll was turned into a temple to the arts & crafts movement by Lord Lonsdale (the so-called ‘Yellow Earl’), and as you wander past stained glass windows and carved wood paneling, you half expect William Morris to pop out of a room at any moment.  It’s the perfect backdrop for enjoying the fruits (and everything else) of head chef David McLaughlin’s labour – all made using locally-sourced produce of course.

If you have room left, they serve a spectacular afternoon tea, too, which you can walk off with a brisk walk round Lake Windemere.  Looks like the weather’s cleared up now...
