Banish the autumn blues in a 13th century retreat fit for a queen

Penrith, Cumbria

As the nights draw in, make yourself at home in a 13th century royal retreat that is anything but old and stuffy.

Askham Hall is nestled between the Lakes and the Pennines, and comes complete with an array of award-winning culinary delights straight off the Lowther family’s country estate. Team that with some intimate spa luxury and a relaxing stroll in the 12 acre, grade II listed gardens.

With 15 guest rooms to choose from, you can even stay in the original Pele Tower – the oldest part of the house which has previously hosted members of the Royal family. But there’s no formal service, just an invitation to relax, unwind and feel totally at home.

So kick off your wellies at the front door and find the perfect way to ease away even the most stubborn autumn blues.
