Windermere – Lakefront Luxury at its Finest.

When it comes to lakefront locations it doesn’t get much better than the Old England Hall & Spa. Set on the shore of Lake Windermere, in the pretty little town of Bowness, guests here can enjoy unravelled views of the private jetties and moorings on the lake.

The Bowness pier is just a short stroll from the hotel and offers boat trips on England’s largest lake to a choice of destinations, including Ambleside, Brockhole, Windermere, and Wray Castle. Other great nearby attractions include The Beatrix Potter Experience – where Beatrix Potter’s much-loved characters are magically brought to life. Or, if you feel like trying something new, how about an Alpaca trek and picnic. Start by taking the Alpaca’s across ‘The Helm’ then tuck into a picnic with panoramic views. The nearby South Lakes Safari Zoo offers visitors the chance to see even more incredible animals. For a truly interactive experience why not become a ‘Zoo Keeper for the Day’ and take part in feeding time. Guests of the Old England Hall Hotel & Spa will receive 25% off tickets (Just mention you are going to the reception staff, and they will provide you with a discount coupon).

With so much to do in the area, you are going to need a great place to come back to. Somewhere you can unwind, relax and recharge. The Spa & Leisure Club at the hotel includes an indoor heated pool, state-of-the-art gym, and luxurious rooms where guests can choose from a range of fabulous Elemis treatments.

You’re going to work up an appetite, and when you do, you’ll find a choice of dining experiences are available here. For a fine dining experience, the Lakeside Restaurant serves only the finest British cuisine. For a more relaxed experience, unwind in the Terrace Lounge where you can enjoy a classic afternoon tea and your favourite coffee. The sun terrace is also a great spot for evening cocktails.

When the sun goes down and your day is done retire to a choice of wonderfully comfortable rooms ranging from standard bedrooms located in the historic Georgian house section of the hotel, all the way up to stunning suites, with lots of space and natural light. All rooms include complimentary wi-fi, luxury toiletries, and beautifully appointed en-suite bathrooms.
