Welcome to Windermere Hotel

Hotels in the Lake District are always sought after as it’s a popular holiday destination. If you’re looking for Lake Windermere hotels that are ideal venues for weddings and other functions, the Windermere Hotel is one of the best choices around. The grand, English heritage-listed Windermere Hotel dates back to 1847 and is perfectly located on the edge of the village in an elevated position a few hundred metres back from the Lake. The Hotel is perfectly located for exploring, walking, boating or just browsing the shops, cafés and museums of local towns such as Bowness or Kendal.

The Windermere Hotel has 75 rooms including standard single, twin, double, and family rooms. If you’re looking for something special then ask about rooms with scenic views. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and well equipped to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible.
The Orrest Head Lodge is part of the hotel and offers a range of modern dishes including pasta and pizza at good prices. Relax with a good meal and perhaps a drink in the evening while you take in the wonderful view across the lake.

As one of the pet friendly hotels in Windermere, dogs are also welcome in selected rooms, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend if you want to take them on adventures around the lake.
