Spa & Leisure

Surrounded by gardens and England’s largest lake – Windermere – Macdonald Old England is well positioned for a relaxing country break that caters to a variety of individual preferences.

The state of the art gym and twenty meter pool make it ideal for those looking for a proper work-out before relaxing with an Elemis detox therapy or facial, but the Thermal Suite and floor to ceiling windows ensure it is also a beautiful place to recline on a lounger and enjoy the view.

Hotel & Accommodation

In a country house that sits pride of place in the Cumbrian countryside, the hotel has its own private jetties on the edge of the location’s most prominent landmark – Lake Windermere, which of course also lends itself to impeccable views from each of the 106 rooms.

The rural area means there are plenty of outdoor activities including fishing and forest adventure courses that include high wires and zip wires, to the more sedate Beatrix Potter Museum and Dove Cottage and Wordsworth Museum nearby.

Being surrounded by a sense of such all-English history and rural tradition, it is entirely fitting that the Number 23 restaurant is an equally traditionally furnished venue serving British food with a twist and as much organic produce as possible.
