Drone shot of the hotel across the lake


Bringing people together inspires almost everything we do. The hotel, Glasshouse and grounds are social spaces that can be curated in all sorts of ways. You can have your event, workshop, party or private dinner here in the style that suits you. We are also happy to consider exclusive hire of the hotel.


The Glasshouse

Open for private hire and community gatherings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the Victorian-style Glasshouse is an adaptable venue.

With a woodfired pizza oven, a bar, firepit and outside seating we can work with you to create the space you need. Be inspired by the views across Ullswater, the landscapes gardens and the stars above.

The Glasshouse can seat up to 22 across multiple tables, or 16 at one long table.


Exclusive use

For larger events including company launches, private parties and weddings, exclusive use of the hotel will give plenty of flexibility. Use the whole hotel and grounds from midday on the day of arrival until 11am on the day of departure.
