When only a pocket of absolute indulgence will do it’s advisable to have Broadoaks boutique Country House Hotel on speed-dial.
This stunning slice of Lakeland heaven sits atop a six-acre eerie, overlooking the rolling hills and valleys of Troutbeck; spectacular in all four seasons.
Traditional architecture and features meet quirky modern twists and there’s more than a hint of playfulness within the interiors; but the owners are nothing if not serious when considering guests’ comfort.
It’s a level of attention to detail that goes beyond ‘little touches’; this is the thinking that elicits a hushed ‘wow’ and leaves guests glowing with delight.
Layers of welcome accumulate softly within guests’ rooms, with deliciously generous pure-wool rugs, crisp Egyptian linen and enveloping faux fur throws.
Showers drench and invigorate, lazy mornings beckon while the hills offer adventure.
The perfect playground to explore exclusive, private or social – the hotel has a unique knack of offering a range of different experiences at one golden location.
Each guest room in the main house is individual, and the beautifully designed accommodation luxury hideaways throughout the grounds encourage let-yourself-go hedonism.
Service is friendly, attentive but never intrusive. Food and drink is classy, delicious and well-chosen. Best of all, the hotel, with all its luxuries, doesn’t forget that the experience is all about you.
Broadoaks is the premier venue for classy weddings small and large and is available for exclusive hire. If you want to avoid traffic hold ups on the route - there’s a helipad.
Broadoaks presides over some of the finest walking country in England, so naturally its owners wanted to offer the warmest welcome to everyone drawn to the Lake District’s national park to stretch their legs – two and four-legged.
What this beautiful gem of a boutique country house hotel has managed to create is uber-luxury for people where well-behaved guests’ dogs are welcome too. With a complete disregard for the ‘stuffiness’ that can prompt some luxury hotels to adopt a no-dogs policy, Broadoaks’ style is to do it differently. It recognises that dogs are guests too and that, if their owners are coming to one of the UK’s walking capitals, they’re going to want to bring their best friend. Consequently their needs have been treated with the same level of thought and consideration as their owners’.
Broadoaks’ three beautiful Garden Suites and its main “Boudoir" suite set in its six-acres of grounds are paws-friendly. The hotel is serious about the attention to detail it extends to its smallest visitors, right down to a welcome treat or two on arrival from Flo, the house Cavapoo.
There’s even a four-paws menu – special dietary requirements catered for - and a DDBB (Doggie Dinner Bed and Breakfast) rate. Find out more on our website (link right).
While some sensible house rules are there to make everyone’s stay enjoyable, guests bringing their dogs to the beautiful Troutbeck hotel will find plenty of spaces to share a relaxing drink in the company of their pets and a ‘lead-free’ field for that all important first-thing leg-stretch.
The hotel is only a 20 minute drive off the M6, Junction 36. Detailed directions are available on our website. Windermere train station is only a 5 minute taxi ride away.
