Your Destination —
Between the hotel and Ullswater is a sheep field which slopes gradually to the rocky shore of the lake. Next to it are peaceful, well- tended gardens – the perfect spot for a gentle stroll or an al-fresco cup of tea.
The Dalmain mansion and gardens, two or three miles from the Pooley Bridge end of Ullswater, have been in the Hasell family since 1679. Visitors can stroll through the property to discover fascinating interiors and historic parkland. Homemade food is served in the Mediaeval Hall Tearoom.
The Historic Home of Lord and Lady Inglewood – full of fine furniture, tapestries and portraits, whilst the abundant grounds include a walled garden, topiary terraces and a woodland walk.
Lowther Castle and Gardens
Having been abandoned 70 years ago, Lowther Castle and Gardens is undergoing a restoration programme designed to preserve the rich wildlife that moved into the ruins and vast gardens. Open to visitors every day, guests will delight in the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre within the walled garden of the Castle.
This medieval Castle was founded in the early Thirteenth Century – visitors can get lost in the maze of passageways and spiral staircases. The Castle is great to explore, whilst the riverside grounds provide the perfect picnic spot.
