Stayed overnight for DBB for a birthday treat. We selected one of the best rooms (photos of all are available), huge! A combination of very traditional plus modern extras such as a swish walk-in shower, large comfortable bed, lush settee and armchairs, the usual upmarket toiletries, dressing gown and slippers, nice balcony with views of Ullswater and the hills, but unfortunately also the car park below! The gardens are absolutely magnificent, and thanks to unusually warm weather we were able to have both pre-dinner drinks and after-dinner coffee on a delightful terrace overlooking the lawns and garden with rabbits frolicking about. The dinner was good and well presented, wouldn't criticize it per se but it did not really match the price of about £60 p.p for three courses (2 days later we had a 3-course lunch at the Michelin-starred Pollen Street Social in London for £29 p.p., on a different level altogether), and with the room (admittedly one of the most expensive) the DBB total for one night was £390 plus all drinks (and the excellent wines are certainly not cheap) -- you expect a lot for that in a country hotel, and it is rather pushing it. But we would go back just for the indulgence!

Formerly Rampsbeck Hotel, Another Place, The Lake is a hotel on the shores of Ullswater in the Lake District and is the first in a new collection of unique hotels from Another Place. The Lake is a relaxed, convivial hotel from where you can explore the great outdoors. It's a place for coming together round a table or fire pit, or for going it alone on a walk in the hills.
