If you're looking for a weekend retreat with a bit of luxury, and beautiful surroundings, then look no further. The Swan Hotel and Spa is situated at the southern tip of Lake Windermere in Cumbria, and suits everyone from couples, to families and business guests.
The oldest part of the building was erected in 1623, but now it has been expanded and offers 51 bedrooms and suites which have all the modern facilities you would expect. It still has character and charm though, and the rooms are fresh; bright and have stunning views.
The highlight of my stay at The Swan was DEFINITELY the food! It has a great reputation among Lakes locals (which is always a good sign!) and you can almost see other diners drooling as they enjoy their food! Breakfast, which is included, is also amazing with all sorts of cooked options on offer. Top tip - they serve incredibly delicious eggs benedict!
When I stayed, I had an energising massage in the spa which was just fantastic. It helped me to relax while also preparing me for a lovely walk around the local area. There is also a pool and gym area, for those who are feeling more energetic!
The boutique hotel is a great base from which to explore the countryside, but it's also the perfect place to relax and unwind. If you want a weekend away, with amazing food, then this could be just the spot for you! Visit the official website here.
