Whether you're visiting the Lake District for the incredible scenery or the fantastic food, Holbeck Ghyll combines the two in a way no other luxury Lake District hotel can. Enjoying a stunning position overlooking Windermere and the Langdale Fells, it was the former hunting lodge of Lord Lonsdale, The Yellow Earl' and first president of the AA. The arts and crafts interior features stained glass, carved wooden panelling and inglenook fireplaces but Holbeck Ghyll's three-AA-rosette fine dining rooms form the focal-point of most visits to the country house hotel. Pre-dinner drinks and canapés can be enjoyed in one of two comfortable sitting rooms, before entering the elegant oak-panelled dining room with its incredible lake view where Head Chef Jake Jones' cooking is firmly based on fresh and seasonal local Cumbrian produce. Choose from Lunch, Table D'Hote and Gourmet menus with optional wine flights. Holbeck Ghyll is a former winner of the Good Food Guide's Wine List of the Year and has an extensive choice for connoisseurs. There is a spa too and as well as 13 beautiful rooms and suites in the main house, there are a further six exquisite rooms in The Lodge, two luxury cottages and the fabulous Miss Potter suite. Holbeck Ghyll also memorably featured in Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's hit TV series, The Trip.
