The idea

Our aim is simple. To create a relaxed, convivial hotel connected to the great outdoors and its exceptional lakeside location.

The plan

Maintain the original Georgian building, adding a new library, Rampsbeck Restaurant and The Living Space. Create 20 additional bedrooms, family suites and Swim Club, our take on a spa including a swimming pool and treatment rooms. All ahead of our opening in August 2017.

A brief history

Another Place hotels are for people who want to experience a new environment to its full, without losing a sense of home and belonging.

Sat in 18 acres of National Park, less than 100m away from the shores of Ullswater, it’s easy to see why we couldn’t pass on this place.

  • Originally built as a private home in 1714
  • Converted into a hotel in 1747
  • Large reception rooms added in the Victorian era
  • In the mid 19th Century it was the private residence of Francis Baring Atkinson, a member of the famous Baring Bank family.
  • Commissioned as a Lycée for French and Belgian evacuee children during the Second World War
  • Bought and developed into country house style Rampsbeck Hotel by the Grundy family in 1945
  • Acquired by Another Place in May 2015
  • Works begin for Another Place, The Lake in  September 2016
