The Belsfield: Unwind on the banks of peaceful Lake Windermere
Make yourself at home at the wonderful Belsfield Hotel, a quintessentially Cumbrian hotel on the shores of the serene Lake Windermere.
Each of The Belsfield's rooms feature elegant décor, plush furnishings and carefully-selected fabrics. Timelessly styled, all rooms and suites are kitted out with little luxuries to make your stay extra-special.
The Belsfield is located in Bowness-on-Windermere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you'll be within easy reach of the area's many attractions and landmarks. From this luxurious base you can explore the Lake District National Park, a vast natural playground perfect for exploring by foot, bike, or boat.
Our offer includes a cruise on Lake Windermere, allowing you to enjoy spectacular views of mountainous landscapes, secluded bays, and forested islands from the water. You can get off at each stop and catch a later boat back, allowing you to discover some of the pretty lakeside towns and perhaps treat yourself to a pub lunch.
You'll be invited to dine at the Belsfield Restaurant & Brasserie, where you'll be treated to a three-course a-la-carte dinner. The carefully crafted menu offers an excellent selection of classic British dishes like local beer-battered haddock and braised shoulder of lamb.
After dinner you can sip classic cocktails in the stylishly decorated Lounge Bar, with its crystal light fittings and glowing marblesque bar.
End your stay with a late checkout at noon. Enjoy a leisurely Full English breakfast and perhaps taking a stroll around the hotel's six acres of landscaped gardens, taking a final moment to appreciate the serene lake views.

Style & Character
People who want to take the Lakes at a more leisurely pace will feel at home here, and it's particularly suited to family get-togethers. We love the way public rooms have been turned into elegant spaces and highlighted with decorative plates and art deco mirrors.
