A boutique hotel with a difference, the Brimstone Hotel in Langdale is the first of its kind in the Lake District. Thanks to an investment of over £3.2 million, a picturesque Lakeland slate building nestles amongst the craggy hills of Langdale, surrounded by tranquil pine trees and rhododendrons.

Located within the Langdale Estate, Brimstone Hotel benefits from being in close proximity to the expansive facilities of the resort, whilst retaining a high degree of privacy and tranquility. The name comes from the time when the entire estate was a gunpowder works.

Sulphur, otherwise known as brimstone, is a component of gunpowder and cleverly, the chemical number for sulphur is 16 which ties in perfectly with the number of suites housed within Brimstone. Such is the level of detail that you will experience at this outstanding boutique hotel.

The Brimstone phenomenon

Bursting with contemporary style and innovative features, Brimstone Hotel offers glamour and luxury. Large open plan suites house elegant baths in the main room, super king raised beds, spacious private balconies and stunning design. The unchanging beauty of the Lake District is captured by the colour palette of sage mixed with rich earthy tones of autumn, Lakeland slate and lightly tinted wood. Lavish touches such as the personal lighting system, the latest GHDs, underfloor heating and real log fires will make you feel seriously pampered.

The personal service at Brimstone is second to none – friendly and knowledgeable staff with a genuine passion for the hotel meet you at reception and ensure that your every need is attended to until the moment that you leave. With stylish uniforms of crisp white shirts, Levi jeans, Dubarry boots and a tweed waistcoat, the hosts are ever willing to be of assistance – arranging for beauty and body treatments in the privacy of your balcony, booking activities in the local area or planning a romantic dinner for two in the comfort of your suite.

At the heart of Brimstone Hotel is the wonderful reading room – a haven for relaxing and a rare display of complimentary refreshments. Cakes and scones in the afternoon, nuts in the early evening, cheese and biscuits for after dinner and handmade sandwiches for during the night. Wash this down with a choice of coffees from the Nespresso machine, delve into the fridge for beer, relieve the wine cooler of its numerous bottles or enjoy a cocktail from the resident mixologists. There is even an ice machine, and a host ever present to make sure no-one goes hungry or thirsty. Comfy chairs and sofas are dotted throughout the room, with newspapers, magazines and books to snuggle down with.
