Fodor's Review

Sublime views and exceptional service and cuisine add distinction to this country house on the shores of Ullswater. Salons with oil paintings and fringed lamp shades represent classic Lakeland style. The traditional bedrooms are plushly opulent, although those in the Edwardian Gatehouse and in the Bank House, an Elizabethan farmhouse about 1½ miles away, are somewhat simpler. Your sophisticated dinner (reservations essential, £75 fixed-price menu) might include roast

salmon on scallop risotto or venison with sweet-potato confit; leave room for sticky toffee pudding, supposedly invented here. Be sure to request the lake-view dining room. Book ahead for afternoon tea, served every day at 4.
