Ten adults, two babies and four dogs enjoyed a weekend together! We stayed at a lodge in the grounds of Holbeck Ghyll but visited the spa for treatments and a couple of us used the hot tub. Dinner was booked at the hotel, and we were given the private room which was an added bonus. The meal was delicious as...

We have stayed here before and the rooms are as comfortable and the staff as friendly and helpful as we remembered. The lounge areas are cosy with great views over Windermere and the mountains. However we didn't feel they were quite ready to reopen, there were some wines and spirits not available from the wine menu, the food, although excellent...

This is nice country house hotel that is in the process of transformation. They are clearly investing in the venture. Already there are signs of tasteful refurbishment. A new chef started 2 weeks before our visit and appears to be settling in well. This should be enhanced when they complete their complete kitchen re-fit in early January. Most of the...

Stayed here with family for two nights over the Christmas week, and it was a very nice hotel. The views were absolutely stunning and really do take your breath away. We stayed in the main house, and the rooms were huge, although they were a little tired looking. We had the comfiest bed I have ever slept in though, and...

If you had a millionaire friend you would love him to have a house like this with classy rooms and a great chef. I have to admit we are fans of Holbeck Ghyll having stayed every year for the last five years. We love the classic bedrooms in the main house as they have such character but the cottage rooms...

I visited here a few days ago with a friend for two night stay. The hotel is in a stunning location up a long driveway with views of Lake Windermere. The inside was that of an old country house with beautiful doors, roaring log fires and a welcoming atmosphere. There are two comfortable lounges and beautiful gardens to wander in...

Booked this hotel after looking on Trip Advisor and looking for somewhere special for a couple of nights. Some aspects of the hotel are 5 star but sadly the accommodation that we had was at best 3 star. Firstly the 5 star: the staff are excellent, very helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and...

We visited this hotel a couple of years ago and loved it so wanted to come back.

Where do I start? Firstly, I would like to thank all the staff and especially the chef's at this wonderful country house hotel. They went above and beyond to cater for my many food intolerances and allergies and the dishes they presented to me not only looked gorgeous but tasted delicious too.

I booked this hotel through a third party website, having been aware of it's existence for a number of years. I did not pay too much attention to some of the more negative reviews on Trip Advisor, preferring to judge for myself on this occasion. I have to say that from the moment of our arrival to the moment of...
