Lakeside Hotel and Spa

Breathtaking 4* hotel and spa on the southern shores of Windermere

Facilities at Lakeside Hotel and Spa

The Lakeside is home to a stunning Aveda Destination Spa offering indulgent treatments and soothing massages. The spa garden is arguably home to the best seats in the house, as you can wander from spa to lake at your heart's content. You'll also find a 17m indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The leisure facilities offer unparalleled views over the lake and fells. 

Away from the spa, guests can enjoy fine dining in the lakeside restaurant, or more casual light bites in the conservatory. In the warmer months, a decadent afternoon tea or a refreshing G&T can be enjoyed on the peaceful terrace with its delightful lake views.
