About the hotel
On the shores of England’s largest lake, the Old England occupies an unrivalled location on the shores of Lake Windermere with stunning views to the fells beyond. It is ideal for exploring the Lake District national park and its many attractions. Located in the heart of Bowness village, this elegant Victorian mansion is superbly furnished with fine antiques.
The hotel is ideal for access to the lake itself as well as its many unique shops and visitor attractions. Enjoy a drink in the Terrace bar and then dinner in the Rosette awarded Vinand restaurant, which provides panoramic views of the lake as well as fine cuisine. Attractive gardens lead down to our own jetties. The hotel provides the finest Spa facilities in the area, perfect for relaxing after a hard day exploring, or simply pamper yourself in the tranquil environment that is the spa, with a range of treatments to rejuvenate and awaken your senses. The Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa is delighted to provide our guests with a full valet parking service, charged at £5 for a day visit (less than five hours) or £10 for an overnight stay. Pre-booking is advisable, particularly for weekend stays. A £400k investment in Boardrooms, Bar, Lounge and Public Areas is now complete.

What a view!
With stunning scenery and ideal location, this hotel is a little gem.
The only downside is that you don't have easy access to your car due to it being parked by a valet. However, the hotel and location make up for it. I would recommend staying here for a short spa break as the facilities are outstanding and the staff very helpful. Eating breakfast overlooking Lake Windermere was an absolute luxury which we would definitely like to do again.
Friendly hotel with fabulous views and great facilities
This is a great hotel with very friendly staff who are happy to help.
The location was perfect and even though parking is off site and at a charge, I felt the hotel gave a quick and reliable valet service. The room we had was lovely-immaculately clean and with a super view of the lake. Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer. Thank you macdonald old England for your warm hospitality and professional service.
