How to Get There

Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel

Windermere, LA23 1LU United Kingdom


Superb views, room and food!
Michele D

The Holbeck Ghyll is breathtaking. The food is amazing, the staff are wonderful, the views are spectacular. We stayed for three nights on a DBB basis, which included a different 5-course tasting menu each night. the rooms are comfortable and spacious, and spotlessly clean. What we particularly like, however, is how welcoming the hotel is to dogs, in as much as, they allow your pet to stay in the room while you dine, or they will set up a table in the bar area so that your dog can join you. This is great, as other dog owners know, most hotels and even self-catering cottages do not allow dogs to stay on their own. So well done to the Holbeck Ghyll for not only providing a 5*experience but for also welcoming dogs and their owners.

Afternoon tea

We had the champagne afternoon tea, having read that it is the best in the Lake District. It was certainly tasty and filling, the chef displaying impressive pastry skills. The service is excellent and the building interesting, with what looks like an Arts and Crafts influence. The view of Windermere from the terrace is outstanding and we were lucky to be there on a dry day in between two bouts of heavy rain.

Dog welcome

Not only were we made most welcome but so was our dog Tipple. At the entrance door was a notice board welcoming her by name and leaving a jar of biscuits for her to enjoy.
She of course loved the treats but even more so did we enjoy the human treats. The food at Holbeck Ghyll is quite exceptionally good. On our last night the chef prepared a special dinner for us as we had eaten through the set menu! The staff are all most friendly and very willing. Even the weather was kind to us - nott too much rain -and on our last day the sun shone for us. The view from our bedroom window over Lake Windermere was sensational. Hurry along to Holbeck Ghyll.
