Families are an important part of our hotel and we offer a family menu in our Fine Dining Restaurant, as well as these 'Children's Choices'.

 In our pool, children under 15 years of age are welcome at any time, when supervised by a responsible adult but the gym can only be used by guests aged 15 and over.

When thinking about something to do, Windermere Lake Cruisers sail from right outside the hotel and the Lakes Aquarium is across the car park.
