On the shores of England's largest lake, the Old England boasts unrivaled views of Windermere. This elegant Victorian mansion is superbly furnished with fine antiques and many period features and our 76 bedrooms offer you a relaxing nights sleep. Enjoy a drink in the bar, then dinner in the candlelit Vinand Restaurant which provides panoramic views as well as fine fare. Gardens (with outdoor games of draughts) lead down to the hotel's own jetties. Beautiful scenery abounds in this treasured countryside, much of it preserved by the foresight of children's author Beatrix Potter who invested her book earnings into buying parcels of land in the Lake District ensuring its preservation when she bequeathed it to the National Trust.

Why not use us as a base to explore the English Lake District and see the dramatic views. Whichever season it is there is always something new to see! If you want to relax and let the world go by then you have to come to the right place. Stroll by the lake, take a cruise or just relax in our superb lounge which has that old world charm that is so hard to find these days.

We offer conference and training facilities which can be tailored to suit your needs. Are you looking for somewhere special to hold your wedding? Talk to us and let us help you plan the day-we have the expertise and local contacts to make it a day to treasure.
