overview of the property

Located on the shores of Ullswater in the Lake District and set on 18 acres of beautiful landscape, Another Place is a stylish home from home. The focus is on being active, getting outdoors - kayaking, paddle-boarding, hiking, sailing  -  then relaxing with friends and family back indoors.  It features a kids club, a spa area, a relaxed library, a private lakeshore, jetty and a vegetable patch.  The hotel has 2 restaurants and bars - the Rampsbeck Restaurant and the Living Space bar and terrace.   The 18 acres of lakefront land encompasses lawns, a kitchen garden, and a children's zone with a safari tent and playground. It also has a swim club which has a 20-metre glass walled, lake-view indoor swimming pool. There’s a sauna, treatment rooms and an outdoor hot tub too.  It has 40 bedrooms that span the original Georgian building and the new contemporary wing. The aim is to balance the classic Cumbrian outdoors with a little bit of luxury.


Another Place is set on the western shore of Ullswater in the northern Lake District, just 15 minutes from the M6 at Penrith.  The nearest train station is Penrith. The journey will take three hours from London Euston to Penrith North Lakes. The hotel is a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the station.

All rooms have own-brand toiletries, along with bathrobes, tea- and coffee-making kit, Ruark speakers, a fridge and a TV.

  • Suites / Family rooms:

    These are the biggest double rooms by far, each with brilliant views over UIlswater. But they come with a tough choice. Will you go for a balcony, a four-poster bed or a roll top bath?
