With 18 acres of National Park to roam, Ullswater on your doorstep, a library, treatment rooms and a warm pool to boot, The Lake has inspiration for everyone. All the family, from parents and teens, toddlers, babies and their grandparents can have a holiday here they’ll love. We know that for many of you that means spending a lot of time together and a little time apart. And that while for some of you ‘holiday’ means having a massage in Swim Club, for others it means hanging out in trees and making new friends.

For children aged 3-12, our dedicated, activity-led, kids’ space is a secure building within the grounds, including separate zones for different age groups. The area is suited to a variety of activities, such as games, arts and crafts, puppet shows and storytelling.

The space extends to an outdoor play area and woodland space where children can start honing their forest skills. The lake is not accessible to unaccompanied children.

Ofsted-registered, the kids’ space is run by experienced, qualified staff. All staff have valid DBS (formerly CRB) checks in place. Supervised sessions run daily.

Kids food

There are a range of different food options for children. We have a children’s menu and most of our dishes can be made from the main menu on request. All our dishes are fresh, healthy and home cooked and both restaurants have high chairs. Secure parents’ kitchens are in the hotel with a microwave, washing up facilities and fridge.

Early Supper is served in Rampsbeck Restaurant each evening between 5pm-6pm and the menu is created for children up to 12 years old. There is no extra charge for those staying on a dinner inclusive basis.
