Settle yourself in the heart of the stunning Lake District with a stay at Rothay Manor boutique hotel, a four-silver star, Grade II listed country house retreat with oodles of character and charm.

The dwelling’s individually designed rooms offer oodles of comfort and charm, featuring modern bathrooms, fluffy dressing gowns and many other luxury amenities to ensure guests are as comfortable as possible in this exclusive venue.

Rooms are broken into four options, with a fifth offering of a suite, offering something for most budgets. While one style might be more affordable than the other, each has bags of sumptuous design and character, so wherever you end up resting your head for the night you’ll be more than satisfied.

Rothay Manor’s 3 AA Rosette restaurant is a joy to eat in, offering afternoon teas, casual dining and fine dining to ensure whatever style of meal you’re after will be there.

Daniel McGeorge is the head chef in charge of the splendid food at the hotel and, originally from Liverpool, he has learnt his craft working in some of the UK’s finest establishments including The Bath Priory. 

You may recognise him from the television, as McGeorge was on the 2021 series of the Great British Menu, while he’s also winner of the 2020 Acorn Award.

His food takes inspiration from the local landscape, with subtle Japanese and Scandinavian influences. However, a true and proud northerner, Daniel champions local ingredients above all with the venue’s meat sourced from Cumbria and fish from the North East coast.

While staying in the Lakes, it’s vital you get out and explore the landscape, abundant with beauty and nature. The hotel can point you in the right direction of walks you may be interested in, while throughout the year foraging masterclasses are also held with local experts.

Fancy something a little more physical? Well Rothay Manor is also looking into coaching experiences for guests with a more active outlook.
