Embrace the new season with the award-winning, Grade II listed Langdale Chase in Windermere. Whether it’s a spring-inspired Sunday lunch or a two-night getaway with the whole family, now’s the time for longer days and (hopefully) nicer weather.

Spring staycations

Whether it’s a one-night stopover or a four-night mini break, you and your loved ones can enjoy lazy mornings, leisurely morning and breath-taking lakeside views at Langdale Chase. Do as much as you wish, or, of course, kick back and fine tune the art of doing absolutely nothing.

Each room at Langdale Chase is decorated to accentuate the building’s original features. Seven spacious suites boast individual details such as cosy reading nooks overlooking the lake, while one has a stained-glass ceiling. Two rooms even feature secret wardrobe bathroom doors. All guests can enjoy a complimentary minibar and luxurious bathroom products – courtesy of the hotel’s Cumbrian-based partner, Bath House.

The hotel’s Windermere and Lakehouse Rooms offer a great place to relax with comfortable interiors and some also benefit from private outdoor terraces and spacious bathtubs, offering 365-degree views.

For a more private and intimate bolthole experience, guests can stay in the historic Boathouse. Set apart from the main house and with a private waterside position, the one-of-a-kind Boathouse suite offers a wraparound balcony and rooftop terrace with panoramic views across the lake.

Family-friendly getaways

Schools out, plans are in. For those searching for an Easter adventure in the Lake District, Langdale Chase provides the perfect backdrop for it all. The historic hotel boasts inter-connecting family suites, and each child is treated to their very own bathrobe and slippers before enjoying cookies and milk before bed. In the restaurant, young diners will also find a delicious menu filled with a selection of family-favourites.

Dog-friendly rooms

Don’t be in the dog house! As dog lovers, the team at Langdale Chase take care of their canine companions from the moment they check-in to the moment they ‘wag’ their tail goodbye. The hotel has a selection of dog-friendly, ground floor rooms* which offer direct access to the beautiful gardens.

Dogs are welcome in all areas of the hotel apart from the Dining Room, and they may even find the hotel’s resident dog, Eddie, roaming around.

*There is a £30 charge per dog.

Taste the season

Traditionally, Sunday is a day of rest, so let the hotel’s team of talented chefs do all the work and serve up a decadent spring-infused feast. Whether it’s a family get-together or a quick re-fuel after a wander around Lake Windermere, Sunday lunch is always a good idea.

Packed full of locally sourced ingredients and flavours to suit all tastebuds, guests can enjoy a fantastic dining experience at the hotel’s AA Rosette restaurant, led by Executive Chef, Michael Cole. Choose from Beef Wellington, Guineafowl or why not sample the Roasted Cod? The Sunday lunch offering also includes a selection of roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables*.
