BOUTIQUE HOTEL ELEGANCE meets funky private retreat at Windermere Suites. With double jacuzzi baths and every comfort indoors plus the Lake District on your doorstep, this is a place for spoiling and seclusion.
Eight individual and lavishly appointed suites at this five star guesthouse deliver hands-down on seductive style, minutes from the shores of Lake Windermere. Forget traditional Lakeland cheery chintz – this is all metropolitan chic and super-cool bathrooms.
All eight Windermere Suites score on luxe and cosseting comfort. Expect designer furniture, chromatherapy mood lighting, 42 inch wall-mounted TVs, underfloor heating and – best of all – an oversize double jacuzzi bath for decadent soaks à deux. Three suites – Coniston, Bowness and Ambleside – have an outside terrace, while two (Keswick and Cartmel) have high lofted ceilings and Juliet balconies.
Bathtime for two
Named after towns in the Lake district, each suite has a separate living area, with black walnut flooring, a hand crafted super-king bed and iPod docking station. Bathrooms are palatial, decked out with Italian glass tiling, oversize showerheads and a tile TV to watch from your jacuzzi bath for two. Naturally there’s free wi-fi and a well stocked minibar, as well as fluffy robes and pampering potions.
Favourite suites include Coniston – a sprawling 460 sq ft complete with hand made silver leaf super-king bed, Philippe Starck furnishings, fibre optic fire and private patio. Hawkshead – carpeted throughout – is another big fave.
Breakfast is served in-suite each morning, so look forward to a late lie-in. There’s no need to dress for dinner, either – just order supper or some light bites from the room service menu. For a more formal meal, simply pop next door to sister property The Howbeck, whose restaurant serves a range of modern British dishes.
Romance is alive and well at Windermere Suites. Treats you can pre-order range from champagne on ice and strawberries dipped in chocolate to a Naughty package complete with raunchy dice and tickling feather. Say no more.
