Keeping you safe and happy

We are now closed. This includes our restaurants and Swim Club. We’re taking new bookings from Monday 1 March.

From the outset of the pandemic, we’ve been careful and disciplined in our support for the national restrictions. Protecting the health and wellbeing of our guests, teams and communities remains our priority.

For those guests with bookings during our closure, we’ll cancel your reservation and place any payment made on account, so when restrictions are relaxed we can welcome you again. I’ve been very grateful for the loyalty and flexibility that our guests have demonstrated this year. At this stage, you don’t need to do anything and we ask you to avoid calling us as we’re extremely busy. Our teams will be in touch in the coming days.

Whilst the next few weeks may look tough, we’re focussed on 2021 with positivity and energy and will use this time to plan accordingly. The Lake District isn’t going anywhere and we’ll keep you connected to Ullswater with our photos and stories on our social media channels.

In the meantime, I hope you all stay safe, well and wish you all the best for 2021.

Planning makes perfect.

Now more than ever, taking a break from the everyday is important. You deserve to relax. We’ve got it covered.

You can start building your itinerary from the moment you book your room, using our dedicated guest app. From suggestions and guidance on what to plan and bring, to booking in activities, restaurants, childcare or an early morning swim, we’ll make sure your holiday feels like a holiday – simple, safe, happy.

If in doubt, talk to us, we’re always here for you.

Distance does it.

We’ve maximised the boundless space at Another Place for your benefit. In line with government guidance we’re led by the rule of six across our hotel and restaurants. This means no more than six guests from a single household or bubble can book to stay together, dine together, or socialise together. To help keep groups small and guests a safe distance apart, you’ll find reminders and markers around the hotel. There’s also a guest flow to follow when you’re moving around to iron out pinch points, and our toilets are single use only.

Taking clean to a new level.

Health and hygiene have always been a top priority for us, and since reopening we’ve pushed standards even further. Alongside this, technology minimises paperwork, we’ve taken cash out of the equation and have sanitiser points across the hotel.

AP Room

Your own safe space.

Your room is the heart of your stay, your private space to retreat, sleep well and take time out. Our measures mean you can rest easy knowing you’re somewhere clean, safe and risk free.

Restaurants, in your room or open air: new eating options.

Food and drink can make a holiday. We want you to enjoy eating here as much as you always have, so we’ve changed things a little to make that possible. From advance bookings and more room around you, we’re thinking creatively.

Keeping Swim Club safe.

Swimming to the horizon, splashing with the kids,– active relaxation is a vital part of what makes your stay here special. Swim Club is open, but with a few tweaks to help you make the most of it.


Getting out on the lake.

We’re following guidance to keep our activities safe, so you can get out in the great outdoors.

SUP on Ullswater

Kids’ Zone.

  • Private supervised sessions available 8.15am-6.30pm daily, for children six months to 12 years
  • Private sessions can be booked on our app

  • Children under the age of 16 must be supervised at all times

Our approach.

Reassuring you with the insights and actions that make our plan possible

Research-based, business wide.

We’ve always taken health and safety seriously. Our risk-based approach has kept our spaces clean and our guests safe year after year. Using this as a foundation, we’ve enhanced our practices and protocols in response to the new normal we all find ourselves in.

Measures for reducing risk.

As a business, we want to know that everyone who visits us and works with us is healthy and safe. Our VisitBritain-validated risk assessments and twice daily checks will help us do just that, with all processes monitored and measured using our online health and safety platform.

Preparing our people.

We’re all in this together, which means everyone in all our teams is briefed, trained and working to the high levels of health and hygiene we’ve implemented. We have on-site reminders to keep the team on track and regular team briefings to outline cleaning standards, processes and changes for team members.
