New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you


Trip advisorThis hotel won the Travellers' Choice Award, the highest award bestowed by the world’s leading review website. This annual award reflects "the best of the best" for service, quality, and customer satisfaction from hotels & accommodations.

Your Destination

The Lake District National Park is famous for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and cultural heritage. With Cool, clear lakes, tarns, rivers, ancient woodlands and a wealth of wildlife, the Lake District is truly a place to escape to nature and stand in awe of its brilliant surroundings.

A haven for walkers, the Lake District awaits and is ready to be admired. Loughrigg Terrace, Easedale Tarn, Alcock Tarn, Helm Crag and the Coffin Trail are shorter walks that are not to be missed, whilst more challenging feats include Helvellyn, Langdale Pikes, Fairfield Horseshoe and Scafell Pike. Brave the peaks of Coniston Old Man and Skiddaw for breathtaking scenery.  

Retrace the footsteps of William Wordsworth, who spent most of his life in and around Grasmere, and described it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever known.” Visit Dove Cottage, Rydal Mount and the main fells to tap into his poetic inspirations and influences. Who knows... You might be inclined to weave together a few stanzas too!
