We stayed 2 nights and Holbeck Ghyll was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The staff was friendly and professional. The country house is charming and old. Our room was an average size and was clean and nicely furnished. We had a view of the lake from our room which was wonderful. Also we had dinner in the...

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience, from the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and friendly, and the hotel very welcoming to those who travel with a dog. The provision of dog towels and treats was an excellent touch. Dinner was good, each course bettering the last. Breakfast each...

We stayed for my birthday 25th September in the Miss Tiggy Winkle Suite. The room had the most perfect view of lake Windermere,even from the bed!

Predictably the food is brilliant. It's a restaurant with a great reputation, and the service from the wonderful staff, plus the food itself, certainly lived up to it. It's not cheap though. So unless you are loaded perhaps you'd make this a special destination dinner spot. As for the hotel, it sadly can't live up to its restaurants brilliance. But...

Just an overnight stay with American friends this time. As ever the staff are the joy of Holbeck, from top to bottom, they are charming, friendly but never intrusive. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay, love the new carpets and doors upstairs in the main house, a great improvement. We had a wonderful dinner with superb wine...

We have just returned from a two night stay in the Sheiling Cottage with our two doggies! Sad to have to leave today, the stay was faultless in every way. Having dined here a couple of times, we treated ourselves to a stay and it so lived up to our expectations. The food was absolutely stunning, dinner was amazing and...

This was our fourth stay at the Holbeck Ghyll and as before the service and friendly staff were exceptional. We stayed in the Miss Potter suite for 6 nights which is beautifully appointed with amazing views. We loved the terrace and after a days walking on the ridges it was wonderful to relax in the hot tub and watch the...
