Luxury boutique retreat overlooking Lake Windermere3 Nestled on the edge of Lake Windermere, Laura Ashley The Belsfield, occupies an enviable position in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. A vision of cream and white, the building is a fine example of Victorian Italianate architecture. It stands in 6 acres of landscaped gardens, with panoramic views across the Lake District – the perfect spot for a luxury break. Opposite the hotel's gardens is Bowness's lakeside landing pier, so you won't have far to go to jump on board a lake cruiser for a boat trip across the water to Ambleside or Lakeside. The hotel is also less than 5 minutes' walk from the center of Bowness and the World of Beatrix Potter Museum, where you can find out all about the inspiration behind Peter Rabbit and friends. Our 62 designer bedrooms are classically styled in Laura Ashley decor and have plush bedding for a comfortable night's sleep. From our Lake View rooms, you can wake up to the beauty and tranquillity of Windermere before going for a pre-breakfast stroll. And if you want to live like a king or queen, opt for our four-poster suite with super-king-size bed, roll-top bath, robes and slippers. Outside of your room, there are plenty of places to relax within the hotel. Dine in either our restaurant or brasserie, enjoy an alcoholic beverage in the lounge bar or take tea or coffee in the drawing room and library. The hotel also has state-of-the-art conference facilities and is a beautiful location for a dream wedding.
