Ellerthwaite Lodge, an iconic guest house in Windermere has undergone a programme of extensive refurbishment since being bought by the South Lakes Hotels Group earlier this year.
Now called Windermere Park, each room has been painted, upgraded, new soft furnishings and new bathrooms whilst keeping the integrity of this prominent period building just outside of Windermere village on the road to Bowness and Lake Windermere.
The most exciting addition has been the creation of the Oscar Wilde Suite. Oscar Wilde was a lover of the Lake District and in particular, the design of properties and buildings such as Windermere Park. The use of wood internally, the distinctive plaster work and stained glass window features all of which are throughout this property and which with it’s corner plot has always been a building many people drive past and look at or walk past to stop and stare.
The Oscar Wilde suite offers something that little bit different to many of the other suites in the Lake District. Being housed in a guest house rather than a hotel for one to one service, a huge square footage and separate living area and the ability for this large suite for families to stay in but equally this is a romantic space for couples. Prices start from £190 for 2 adults and up to 2 children provides luxury and great value accommodation (and with breakfast too). Relax and unwind in the lounge area surrounded by one of the best examples of 1900’s stained glass in Windermere first thing in the morning, post walk or after dinner.
Windermere Village is now a place for foodies from daytime cafes to delicious restaurants. Also enjoy places like the Crafty Bar with one of the finest and most extensive selections of craft ale in the Southern Lakes. Wander down to Lake Windermere – just 15 minutes away, arrive by car and park in the private, off road car park or arrive by train and Windermere Park is just a 5 minute walk from Windermere Train Station. Don’t forget to stock up of Lake District delicacies from Booths Supermarket and the flagship Lakeland Limited store for everything for the kitchen and home. The restaurant there is another hot spot to try.
