Went for a weekend of walking with the wife and chose the Langdale as I liked the idea of a cabin within a hotel. We checked in and asked for an upgrade and ended up in a Waterside Feature room. All I can say about this room is WOW!!! Its about a 1 min walk from reception in a separate converted cottage type of building. It was amazing. It was the seclusion of staying in a cottage with the convenience of staying in a hotel.
It never feels very busy. Its only on the last day of our stay when we went for a swim in the pool that we discovered that it actually was. This is now easily one of my favorite hotels in Britain. Super staff and in such a lovely location.
One warning would be that if like me you live on your mobile phone then you are in trouble. There is very little phone reception anywhere as you are in a valley. If, on the other hand, you are after a quiet, peaceful, scenic weekend away then this place is fantastic.
Also – the fridge in the room is massive so make sure you stop off at the local corner shop to stock up on supplies before you arrive.
