Waterhead Ambleside LA22 0ER 01539 432 566
For designer style on the lake, the Waterhead – just outside Ambleside, overlooking Windermere – pretty much has things sewn up. What looks like a traditional lakeland slate-built hotel on the outside is 4-star boutique inside, with high-spec rooms featuring both pillow and champagne menus as well as very classy bathrooms. You’re only a step away from the water and the ferry pier, while a stylish restaurant and bar – opening onto private gardens – tempt you to stay put in the evenings.
