IT is the latest TV series to grip the nation - and it was filmed right here in the Lake District.

Deep Water, which was filmed mainly in Windermere, gives viewers some stunning shots of the great outdoors.

And tonight, there is more to come.

Holbeck Ghyll, no stranger to the small screen, is set to feature in ITV’s latest episode.

The hotel's general manager Elia Shreiber said: “Holbeck provides a versatile location for both TV and film crews, with iconic views, authentic period interiors, and flexible outdoor spaces with woodland, meadows, formal gardens and tumbling Lakeland streams it’s the perfect place to film.

“We were thrilled when the team behind Deep Water approached us and are really happy to play our small part in helping to showcase the beauty and diversity of the Lake District to as wide an audience as possible.’’

The hotel, overlooking the shores of Windermere, is set to feature in episode two of the gripping and emotional Lakes based drama, which will be broadcast at 9pm.

Shot last September, the iconic country house hotel’s glorious location, arts and crafts interiors and renowned Oak Dining room feature in several key scenes in the unfolding six-part series.

The series stars Anna Friel, Sinead Keenan and Rosalind Eleazar; who portray the lives of three complex and vibrant women, each struggling to keep their heads above very deep water.

Like all of us, they seek to do their best for their families, but face tough choices with difficult, and often messy repercussions.

Lisa Greasley, a Windermere Town councillor. said she watched the show in the hope of seeing some familiar scenery.

She said: "There was some lovely scenery shown, but I found it a bit muddily at times.

“When you live here you tend to look for places you know, and some of the show was actually filmed at Coniston.”

When asked about the way the show depicts Windermere in a new, more scandalous light, she said: “Obviously you’re going to go for an angle with a bit more juice to get people to watch it."
