Miller Howe

Rayrigg Rd., Bowness-on-Windermere, LA23 1EY, England

A lovely location, lake views, and superb service help set this luxurious Edwardian country-house hotel apart. The sumptuous guest rooms have an Arts and Crafts–inspired feel, with William Morris wallpaper, fresh flowers, roll-top tubs, and contemporary art brightening the individually decorated rooms. At the very edge of town, rooms have balconies, some with extensive lake views; you can also relax in the conservatory and look across the grounds to the water. The candlelit Modern British restaurant (open by reservation to nonguests; dinner included in room rate) serves sophisticated fare, and the hotel arranges activities from archery to pony trekking.
