Surrounded by acres of lush woodland and immaculate gardens, it's not just the exquisite food, elegant surroundings and charming staff that have earned Holbeck Ghyll a string of top awards – it's also the view, which gazes over Windermere lake and has been named among the best in the world.
The delightful scene is framed by some of England's most famous peaks, including Coniston Old Man, the Langdale Pikes and Scafell Pike, and has inspired artists and poets for generations. Now, whether it's drenched in sunshine, shrouded in swirling cloud or draped in snow, Holbeck Ghyll's is a view that captivates visitors to the Lake District all year round.
The hotel has a heli-pad which is free for guests to use (please advise at the time of booking).
