Windermere Suites

It's those little touches in any hotel or guest house that make a big difference. And at Windermere Suites those little touches are everywhere. Here, boutique hotel elegance meets private retreat comfort. Escape to the Lake District and indulge in luxurious, spacious quality and submit to the romantic allure of Windermere Suites.
We have 8 individual suites to choose from, each one delivering on style thanks to contemporary designer furniture and bathrooms you can only dream of. For whatever reason you're getting away - a quiet weekend for two, a honeymoon or anniversary - we'll provide everything to make it unforgettable.
When we launched Windermere Suites we wanted to bring something new to the Lake District. Something that really reflected the tranquility and majesty of this unique corner of England. We wanted something far more special. A 5 star luxury retreat, without the pomp and ceremony often assosiated with stuffy hotels, somewhere anyone could feel like they had truly escaped.
Each of the breathtaking private guest suites is designed and furnished to deliver comfort beyond the norm. Delight beyond expectation. Every fitting, every furnishing, every technical element is designer quality. Perfect for honeymooners, anniversary couples or just die-hard romantics who seek heavenly solitude and privacy.
You’ll enjoy a hearty Cumbria platter or Continental breakfast served every morning in the relaxing comfort of your own suite.
Another fascinating element of Windermere Suites is that it is a ‘living showroom’, where you can experience first hand some of today’s leading designer furniture manufacturers.
We've designed eight fabulous suites, each one offering the highest levels of comfort and luxury to make your time with us truly memorable.
From the individual wall coverings to the designer furniture, no stone has been left unturned. Each suite has its own lounge area complete with wall-mounted TV. The spacious bathroom has an oversized double airbath, underfloor heating and Chromotherapy mood lighting.
We have been voted the AA Funkiest B&B in the UK!
