Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa Windermere, Cumbria

There are some retreats which are so idyllic that they become must-visits, and the gorgeous Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa is definitely one of them.

Exploring the breath-taking Lake District is a piece of cake from here, with Windermere, Coniston Water, Grasmere and Rydal Water all within easy reach. You can shop till you drop in nearby Kendal and the pretty town on Ambleside is close by as well.

Excellent

Mary Hobin, Birmingham

We decided to book this as a last minute treat for us while we were on holiday in The Lakes. It was one of the best decisions we made during our holiday. From start to finish this was an excellent experience.
Booking on line was easy and simple.
The reception when we arrived was welcoming and friendly. The therapist was professional and friendly. Despite the short notice booking they were able to cater for my dietary requirement (gluten free) without any hassle.
I would definitely book again and would highly recommend.

Lovely pool overlooking Lake Windermere. Good quality, spotless facilities-the showers were amazing. Good massage-beautiful room-best 25 min facial ever! Great value for money. Great gluten free afternoon tea-delicious scones. All the staff were helpful and made our trip one of the best girlie treats ever. Highly recommend.
