Accommodation Description:

With a magnificent view of Lake Windermere and the Langdale Fells Holbeck Ghyll is idyllic in any season surrounded by the extensive woodlands and natural beauty of Cumbria. Its Michelin star restaurant overlooks lake and mountains and bedrooms both in the main house and the nearby Lodge share the same glorious views. Some of the hotel's spacious suites have been designed with families in mind.

In the midst of the breathtaking scenery of England s Lake District Holbeck Ghyll is perfectly situated for exploring all the attractions of this beautiful region. Built in the 19th century the house was bought as a hunting lodge in 1888 by Lord Lonsdale then one of the richest men in the country. Known as the Yellow Earl he ensured that his name went down in history by bequeathing the famous Lonsdale Belt to boxing.

His lodge was set in the incomparable landscape of the Lake District over- looking one of England s loveliest stretches of water - Windermere. Relaxation at Holbeck Ghyll can take the form of walking or boating golf or birdwatching... or indulging in a range of facilities and treatments available at the hotel s own Spa.
