5 luxury retreats in the Lake District

The Lake District & Cumbria is a well known UK holiday destination with spectacular scenery and beautiful lakes and fells to enjoy. There are numerous things to do such as a lakeside walk around Derwent Water, a serious hike taking in Helvellyn, Skiddaw or Cats Bells, or perhaps a romantic boat trip along Lake Windermere or Ullswater. The key to a good holiday in the Lakes is choosing the right place to stay and what better than to indulge yourself and book into a luxury Lakeland retreat.  Here are five great places to choose from:

Kaber Chapel Luxury Cottage – located in east Cumbria in the beautiful Eden Valley, Kaber Chapel offers unparalleled luxury together with a totally unique holiday experience. Built in 1892, it has now undergone a ‘no expenses spared’ conversion to provide luxury accommodation for large groups and/or families with 2 reception rooms and 5 individually themed bedrooms, 5 luxury wet rooms, an indoor sauna, an indoor hot tub and under floor heating throughout. If that is not enough Kaber Chapel is also equipped with Scandinavian Lavvu tent indoor grill, with seating for 12 persons on reindeer skin covered benches – it is very social, great fun and a unique experience.

Windermere Suites – the eight individual boutique suites have been designed with complete luxury in mind, and each of the private suites have been furnished to deliver total comfort and deliver beyond wildest expectations. Windermere Suites are ‘the’ perfect Lake District location for romantic breaks, honeymoons, anniversary celebrations or simply indulging in sheer luxury, combined with peace and tranquillity and Lake Windermere and the fells right on the doorstep.
