Already set to be one of the greatest lifestyle hotels in the Lake District, Another Place, The Lake Ullswater has now opened its doors.

Resting on the banks of the magnificent lake, Another Place on the shores of Ullswater is surrounded by 18 acres of the Lake District National Park. Rooms, restaurants and leisure facilities have been carefully considered to embrace the phenomenal views, so you are constantly reminded of the wildly beautiful setting.

Swim Club is a contemporary take on a spa. A collection of secluded spaces, featuring a hot tub, sauna, cardio room, treatment rooms and an incredible 20-metre indoor pool that brings the outdoors inside.

Most of the 47 bedrooms also place emphasis on the fell and lake views, and combine modern design with vintage features, as well as giving a nod to the building’s Georgian heritage.

Guests will find wonderful spaces to take time out throughout the hotel. Cosy up with a good book by the crackling fire in the library, soak up the scenery from the terrace and enjoy something delicious to eat, or grab a blanket and a coffee from the entrance hall and head outside where you can relax among the fells.

Because food and drink is right at the heart of Another Place, you will find several dining options here. From the casual and laid back Living Space to the fabulous restaurant with its open kitchen and lake views. But if you prefer the freedom of eating al fresco, the staff can prepare lunch to go or wonderful picnic hampers filled with fresh food that can be cooked on a fire pit or barbecue.

New for summer 2022 book the treehouse in the grounds or one of the six lakeshore shepherd huts, sleeping two or four people. These new outdoor rooms, alongside their Victorian style glasshouse serving stone baked pizza, will bring you closer to the wild. Enjoy a stay in Willow cottage, a large family suite designed by Lynsey Ford, winner of Interior Design Master.

What we really love about it here is the countless things to do right on the doorstep. So whether you want to swim in the lake, hike through the fells or try your hand at paddle boarding, you will never be short of adventures. Plan your stay at one of the finest, luxury hotels in the Lake District.

As well as providing you with the most stunning landscapes, facilities at Another Place, The Lake ensure guests are totally looked after throughout their stay.

Food and Drink

Priding itself on sourcing the finest ingredients, The Living Space and restaurant both deliver the most delicious, imaginative and hearty dishes that tantalise the taste buds. Executive Chef, Neil Haydock, takes inspiration from his travels around the globe and his Lancashire roots to create honest yet mouth-watering flavours.

The Living Space

Laid back and bright, this airy space has comfy sofas and tables for sharing food with friends and family. The bar leads onto an outdoor terrace, which overlooks the sublime scenery.


Relax in front of the open kitchen and watch the drama unfold as inventive dishes are created to impress. The three course menu includes dishes inspired from the outdoor natural larder, so expect to see Herdwick lamb, Cumberland sausage and Morecambe Bay shrimps.

Another Place provides indulgent breakfasts, which let you delve into a whole array of morning goodies, from pastries and fresh fruit to waffles and a full English.

Food to Go

Fancy a picnic in the grounds or a packed lunch for your travels? No problem, the staff can arrange lots of treats for you to take with you.

Swim Club

Taking a step outside of the norm, this alternative spa offers pockets of space perfect for escaping and unwinding. Take a dip in the hot tub, test out the sauna and cardio room or indulge in a treatment. But the showstopper here has to be impressive indoor swimming pool, which is encased by glass walls to give the impression you are bathing among the landscape.

Weddings and Celebrations

No matter what the occasion, Another Place, The Lake provides the most delightful backdrop for weddings, parties or private dining. Standing on the shores of Ullswater, there is no more romantic setting than this. There are places within the hotel and grounds that are licensed for civil ceremonies. Each wedding is unique and a bespoke package can be created to ensure your day is unlike any other.

Things to do

You are never short of things to do in the Lake District or during your stay at Another Place. If you enjoy adventure, try out the open water swimming, cycling, paddle boarding and skiing. Or if you prefer something a little more relaxing, why not book a steam cruise, visit cultural and historic sites or attend one of the many events that take place throughout the year, such as Kendal Calling, Epic Lakes Swim or Keswick Mountain Festival.
