Holbeck Ghyll Country House Overview

Location: Windermere, Lake District, England

Built in the 19th century and originally a hunting lodge for Lord Lonsdale, Holbeck Ghyll is a magnificent and striking Victorian property in an elevated position overlooking Lake Windermere and the surrounding countryside. Despite the rural location, Holbeck Ghyll is well placed for easy access to the nearby town of Ambleside and as a base from which to explore all the Lake District National Park has to offer.

Exclusive but not stuffy, Holbeck Ghyll offers a choice of 32 rooms and suites of individual design and styles and all with the very best of modern comfort and amenities. The hotel has a fine dining restaurant as well as a more relaxed, informal bar and lounge with the terrace being the perfect place to take in the views in the warmer months.

The spa has two private treatment rooms, a sauna, steam room, relaxation room and an outdoor hot tub overlooking some of the best views in the Lake District.

The Holbeck Ghyll is dog-friendly with private grounds and specified dog-friendly rooms.
