Without doubt one of the UK's most picturesque spots, the Lake District has long captivated visitors with its potent scenery and fine hotels. Discover more with today's deal...
We’re offering you a 2-night stay for 2 people including a daily full English breakfast for £99, saving you up to 59% off the Waterhead's price of up to £240.
As far as locations go, we can guarantee they don't come much more idyllic than this. Quietly situated alongside a stunning stretch of Coniston Water with lawns running down
to the shore, the Waterhead has been a stunning hotel for over 100 years. Priding itself on the warmest of welcomes offered to each and every guest, you'll check in to one of 24 individually furnished en-suite bedrooms offering spectacular views across the gardens or Coniston area, each with TV and tea and coffee making facilities. A full English breakfast is included each morning and to make life extra easy, why not take advantage of our Wowcher Bonus and enjoy a three-course dinner in the restaurant overlooking Coniston Old Man for only £19.95 each (when pre-booked)? The regularly changing seasonal menu includes tasty dishes such as rillette of salmon, honey-glazed duck and strawberry pavlova. As a further Wowcher Bonus, if you stay on or before 23rd December, you'll enjoy a bottle of wine to share!
Boasting a fascinating history, the Waterhead frequently welcomed the illustrious Victorian artist John Ruskin as a guest. Ruskin’s home, Brantwood, lies just across the water and many of his visitors, including Charles Darwin, would stay as guests at the hotel. During the Second World War, the hotel became a school for evacuees - including none other than Sir Robin Day! The village of Coniston itself also enjoys a long association with many notable literary figures, including Tennyson (who spent his honeymoon there) and Arthur Ransome, who used Coniston Water as the setting for the epic Swallows and Amazons. There are walks and watersports galore nearby, which the helpful staff at the hotel would be only too pleased to help you plan. We've got an inkling you'll have a fabulous time...
