An 'impressive' hotel in the Lake District has been named among the 34 best hotels in the UK and Ireland.

If you're looking for a reason to get away, then look no further. The suns back out and no one will judge.

Glamour magazine said: "The best hotels in the UK and Ireland should not be underestimated compared to their overseas competitors. Take our word for it.

"If you know where to look, that is. The good news? We've been working hard (*ahem*) visiting some of the most luxurious hotels the UK has to offer, in a bid to reveal the very best hotels dotted about England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

"Yep: we’ve literally ventured to every corner of the British Isles – from Edinburgh and Somerset to Yorkshire and the Scottish Highlands – to discover the very best boutique hotels, seaside boltholes, treehouse hotels and country house hotels with golf courses and Michelin-starred restaurants. There’s something for everyone, so consider your UK getaway sorted."

Lindeth Fell Country House, Windermere

Best for: Lake District.

Glamour said: Overlooking the Lake District's Windermere, Lindeth Fell offers impressive views.

"Set in an Edwardian house with high ceilings and period features, it offers spacious, individually decorated rooms, colourful flower gardens, and even tea and scones on arrival. Yum.

What is Lindeth Fell Country House?

It’s close to the popular Lake District spots of Windermere and Bowness, a five-minute drive or 25-minute walk, but far enough away (tucked off the A5074 that leads to the M6; 30 minutes) to not be bothered by the crowds.

Blackwell Arts and Crafts house is two minutes down the road, while Beatrix Potter’s house, Grizedale Forest and Hawkshead – all on the far side of the lake – or Ambleside and Grasmere, both to the north, are within a 30-minute drive. Fell walks are further (Langdale is around 45 minutes) but there are gentler walks from the doorstep.
