Four luxury suites
Where do we start? In these cutting-edge and contemporary suites, you'll find bespoke, handmade furniture, luxurious carpets, crystallized Swarovski padded headboards, infinity mirrored walls, electric black out blinds designed to blur the difference between day and night, and a completely complimentary mini bar. There's also a Tassimo coffee machine and ice machine.
Using iPad touch-screen controls, select your own bedroom mood lighting and underwater lighting in your huge bathtub for two.
Tap into the on-demand music library and surround sound, or just link up your own device with your favourite tracks. Watch one of over 400 movies on your wide-screen TV.
The Indulgence suite is extra special – check out the 40 inch TV screen hidden behind a wall of mirrors and – for the ultimate movie experience – the giant right feet wide cinema screen. Outside in the secret courtyard you'll find your own private, secluded hot tub – where yet again the iPad controls both outdoor lights and music – and snuggle-up day bed. The Fantasy suite has a dramatic glass-bowl bathroom with a huge bathtub for two.

See & Do
If you can drag yourselves away from your suite, the best of the Lake District is on your doorstep. Keswick and Kendal are easily reached by car, as are Ambleside, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston.
There’s fantastic fell walking in the area, while Beatrix Potter fans can visit her former home at Hill Top, or take a cruise on Lake Windemere. Also worth seeing are poet William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage at Grasmere and the Ruskin motor museum at Coniston.
Guests have free access to the Burnside Spa just a short distance away. There, you'll find an indoor pool, jacuzzis, steam room, sauna and relaxed poolside seating with bar service.
