'Located in northwest England, the English Lake District is a mountainous area, whose valleys have been modelled by glaciers in the Ice Age and subsequently shaped by an agro-pastoral land-use system characterized by fields enclosed by walls. The combined work of nature and human activity has produced a harmonious landscape in which the mountains are mirrored in the lakes. Grand houses, gardens and parks have been purposely created to enhance the beauty of this landscape. This landscape was greatly appreciated from the 18th century onwards by the Picturesque and later Romantic movements, which celebrated it in paintings, drawings and words. It also inspired an awareness of the importance of beautiful landscapes and triggered early efforts to preserve them.'

There’s nothing corporate and uniform about our rooms. Each one delivers something fresh. Each one is uniquely furnished and decorated. Each one will wow you.
Whichever one you choose you’ll be immersed in contemporary luxury with vintage twists. From Calvin Klein rugs to Laura Ashley wallpaper, from the coolest Cowshed toiletries to state-of-the-art satellite televisions, and…. well, everything you would expect for a deeply relaxing, refreshing and luxurious break in the Lake District.
And seven of our rooms enjoy the most panoramic views across the wide expanse of the famous patchwork fields of the Lyth Valley, out towards Scout Scar. The remaining two enjoy woodland views to the front of the hotel.
Named after woodland animals, each Lyth Valley bedroom means you’ve found the perfect place to just hibernate or to use as a base to go out exploring.
All of our guests have unlimited access to the Old England Macdonald Spa facilities which include a pool, sauna, steam room, ice room and a gym. They also offer relaxing spa treatments or full day spa days if you are in need of some TLC.
