About the hotel

For six months from November 2003, the Waterhead Hotel underwent a £2. 7 million refurbishment and extension to become the Lake District's first four star Townhouse Hotel. You are now invited to experience the most contemporary and luxurious surroundings, staying in bedrooms with the most modern, yet user friendly, equipment, including CD/DVD players and flat screen TVs.

Whilst the Waterhead's facilities have been transformed, what has remained is the relaxing Lakeside setting and superlative views over Waterhead Bay with its backdrop of Wetherlam Fell and Coniston Old Man. Probably the most spectacular time to appreciate the view is as the sun sets behind the fells, the sky turns crimson and the lake reflects this beauty. Now picture yourself admiring this majestic natural spectacle from the comfortable surroundings of the Bay Bar and Lounge whilst being presented with a glass of your favourite tipple. Or allow yourself to be pampered with our courteous, friendly, anticipatory and professional service in the Bay Restaurant. The menu features local produce imaginatively prepared and presented. Lessening the number of 'food miles' (distance from producer to plate) is an important consideration for Chef Michael Weston-Cole. Should you fancy something more energetic, then the fells beckon from our doorstep, or you can utilise the complimentary membership of the Low Wood Leisure Club, which is located less than a mile from the Waterhead. Facilities include an indoor pool, sauna, solarium, gym and beauty treatments.
