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. If you have a pooch in toe that is conveniently taken care of too. And let's face it, it might rain, this too has been thought of, All rooms have a plastic tray for muddy boots, while we will always do our best to help dry soggy clothes and store equipment. If you need anything else,tell  the friendly staff in advance and they will do their best to provide



Open all year.


Doubles from £230.
