Holidaymakers in search of that priceless blend of tranquillity and natural beauty are increasingly turning to the rural north of England when the time comes to get away. Tucked away in the north-west is the stunning county of Cumbria. As one of the United Kingdom's most sparsely populated counties, peace and quiet is a given. When it comes to natural beauty, it doesn't get much better than the Lake District. Such a special place deserves a special place to stay. Fortunately, Cumbria is packed with exquisite boutique hotels and guesthouses.
Peace and Quiet
With acres and acres of incredible natural beauty and just one urban area to speak of, Cumbria is about as rural as it gets, making it an excellent destination for those seeking a bit of peace and quiet on their holidays.
Hazel Bank Country House is a luxurious five-star boutique hotel located way out in the depths of rural Cumbria, promising utter tranquillity, ripe for relaxation. There's free WiFi to help guests plan their daily excursions, and a gorgeous garden to relax in on the days you don't fancy doing that much at all.
One of the real benefits of staying in boutique hotels in Cumbria is that they are often set in truly special buildings. The historic building is home to plenty of stunning period properties, and many of them have been converted into comfortable and enchanting hotels.
Armathwaite Hall Hotel is a fine example of how an exquisite property can make a hotel. The romantic, castle-like property is surrounded by beautiful grounds, which make it ideal for those looking for somewhere to stage a wedding. The impressive list of facilities make this boutique hotel equally appealing to professional guests and those after somewhere to unwind.
Boutique hotels focus on the needs of their guests, which means facilities are often outstanding. Langdale Hotel and Spa is a fine case in point, offering an array of tailored treatments to each of its guests.
The health club is great for those who want to stay in shape during their holiday, while the numerous spa treatments can help guests relax.
