Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells, this grand Victorian building was built as a farmhouse in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country House Hotel in the early 1930's. Today it has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District, providing Bed, and a full English Breakfast.
