Our 17m pool and Aveda treatment rooms provide all-weather tranquillity; our spa garden with warming fire pit and heat lamps allows you to take in the air and beautiful vista; watch the lake activity from the comfort of our sunlit conservatory or take a seat on our terrace to venture even closer to the lakeshore.

Those with a passion for steam will love the railway – take a trip back in time and a short ride to Haverthwaite station, one of the most picturesque stations you’re ever likely to come across.
