We are one of those luxury hotels with baths for two. Our bath tubs are huge, deep, lit with ambient lighting, have an air jet feature for a sumptuous jacuzzi experience, and they’re accompanied by lush toiletries, fluffy robes and soft towels.

Why have we spent so much time perfecting our bathrooms and all the associated touches? Because we know that a luxurious bath can make all the difference between a good stay and an unforgettable stay.

And we’re in good company, Aerin Lauder, granddaughter of Estee and Karl Lagerfeld are also bath obsessives:

“I am such a bath girl: we’ve gone to some of the beautiful hotels in the world, and if there’s a shower, I’m so disappointed.”

(We’ve got amazing baths and stunning showers, Aerin, head our way!)

“I don’t take showers at night because I take a bath when I wake up. Then I go to bed on the most beautiful Egyptian-cotton antique sheets in the world.”

(We’re happy for you to take a bath at any time of day, just like Karl – and we have gorgeous cotton sheets too).

We also know that the simple things become the solid foundations on which relationships are built. Kate Winslet said she needed to be looked after – “not diamond rings…and fancy stuff…But I need someone to say to me, ‘Shall I run you a bath?’”

Yes! That kind of gesture is exactly what we’d love our partners to make. To make it easy for them, we’ve pulled together some of our top tips for the best bath:

  • Set the ambient lighting in our luxury bathrooms and you’ll also set exactly the right mood.
  • Order a bottle of chilled champagne on ice and have it delivered to your room just before bath time.
  • Gather anything you want to take in with you so you don’t have to hop out until you’re good and ready.
  • Run the bath so that it’s deep and rich with fragrant bubbles. Start a degree or two hotter than perfect (so that you can relax for a good length of time before having to think about topping up).
  • Have toiletries close by (washing each other’s hair is incredibly intimate and soothing).
  • And hand towels too (a quick dry of hands prevents phones, champagne flutes, magazines or books from taking an impromptu dip).
  • Step in the shower for a quick wash of feet and any daily build up before you get in (so you can soak in gorgeously clean water).
  • Set up your entertainment (our TVs are waterproof).
  • Dive in and get those jets started.
  • Enjoy at your leisure.
  • Step out on to our heated floors, dry off in our fluffy towels, and robe up for the next stage of romance or relaxation.

Top tip: If it’s a pre-date night bath, put your make up on before you get in. Elizabeth Taylor swore by this trick to soften the edges of her look and create a dewy glow for the whole evening.

There’s never a bad time for a stay here at the Windermere Suites, but there are some choice times of year to come for a luxury hotel stay – and Spring is one of them! So book now and take some time out for relaxation and discovery in the Lake District.

Our hotel is situated in the heart of Windermere making it the perfect location for our guests to go and explore. Being so close to lake Windermere, a boat trip is perfect: Windermere Lake Cruises have fabulous options from boat tours to hiring your own boat for an hour or two while you witness the beauty of the lakes from on the water.

Top tip: From the far side of the lake you can take in the panoramic views from Claife Viewing Station and visit the café. Enjoy the colours as the Rhododendrons flower along the lake shore.

A common misconception is that all the great walks in the Lake District require hiking boots and hours of effort and are on a par with a Hellvelyn. We’re here to give you an insider’s secret – spectacular views are easily available via much less strenuous routes! Try a “cheat walk” such as Gummer’s How – with easy parking and a well-marked path. The view over several lakes and fells will easily outweigh the effort taken.

Top tip: The summit of Gummer’s How looks right up the length of the Lake and is perfect for Instagram shots (your friends will think you’re seriously impressive hikers).

The Lake District is famed for its gorgeous display of bluebells, and May is the perfect time to view them in the woodland between Grasmere and Rydal Water. Why not venture a little further into The Lakes to Rannerdale where the bluebells flower in the open fields, turning the valley floor a spectacular hue of purpley-blue?

Top tip: Finish the day with locally sourced food at the spectacular Michelin star restaurant: Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume is known for it’s unique and creative dishes. This is an ideal itinerary for a proposal day too – the romance of wild bluebells combines perfectly with a truly memorable dining experience in a beautiful village!

Whichever option you choose, your luxury suite will welcome you back after a perfect day.

We are lucky to have our gorgeous early 20th century traditional stone and slate building to work with; it’s this Lakeland house that we have transformed into something truly luxurious.

One of things we love about luxury break in Windermere, is its prime location to explore the stunning Lake District scenery.

It goes without saying that one of the best things the Lake District has to offer is, of course, its Lakes! Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a big walker or you’re not a massive fan of the outdoors –there are still plenty of short, easy walks that will reward you with breath-taking views.

Our personal favourite at the Suites is the beautiful Tarn Hows, but don’t just take our word for it – Jet (our very friendly receptionist) absolutely loves it!

luxury hotel in Windermere

This walk is suitable for everyone and has some unbeatable views of the Langdale Pikes. There’s no doubt you’ll be able to get that picture-perfect shot, and if you time it well, you might even catch a stunning sundowner for a magically romantic moment.

Head to the National Trust car park at Tarn Hows to begin your walk. The route itself is well-prepared with obvious gravel paths, so you won’t struggle finding your way. The short route takes around 1 hour, so it’s nothing too strenuous at all, but gives you the perfect opportunity to experience the Lake District at its finest. For an even better view, we recommend taking the ferry across the Lake to truly soak up all its beauty!

What’s even better is that when you’re staying at our luxury hotel in Windermere, you know you have a wonderfully comfy Suite waiting for you upon your return!

The days might well draw to a close much earlier but you can still make the most of the season with a luxury winter break in Windermere – bring on lazy mornings, short walks in our stunning World Heritage landscape, and long evenings full of good food and drink.

Here are our five top tips for loving winter in the lakes:

1. Winter breaks are perfect for long, luxurious lie ins

Waiting for the day to warm up is the perfect excuse for an easy start to the morning. Make the most of our huge beds and soft, sumptuous bedding. Order a piping hot Cumbrian platter, which is served in the privacy of your suite at your chosen time, and ease yourself into the day at a relaxed pace.

2. A luxury break in Windermere means stunning winter views

Take your pick of spots to enjoy the winter light. This time of year delivers some of the most spectacular views in the Lake District. A low sun peeking through the trees will provide you with an impressive picture-perfect moment, so make sure you have your camera at the ready. Whether you choose to explore Windermere, Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite, you’re guaranteed to enjoy breath-taking scenery – and you might even be lucky enough to see the surrounding hills dusted with a layer of snow.

3. Match the shorter days with shorter walks

There’s something deeply satisfying about wrapping up warm and embracing the cold weather. Get your hats, scarves and gloves at the ready and step outside for an enjoyable walk in the Lake District. It’s the perfect time of year for less demanding strolls. And well-timed shorter walks mean you’ll also catch the earlier sunsets.

4. Make a roaring open fire part of your luxury Lake District break.

The Lake District certainly isn’t short of pubs with roaring open fires and a friendly welcome. They are an ideal place to warm up and refuel whilst you’re out and about. Discover some of the fantastic local ales and dip into tasty seasonal menus. With plenty of charm and character, some of our favourites include The Wild Boar, The Hole In’t Wall and the Elterwater Inn.

5. Add a special evening out to your winter stay in Windermere

Of course, shorter days mean longer nights, and an opportunity to make the most of the evening scene in the Lakes. If you’re more of a night owl, the bars, clubs and theatres are sure to become a highlight of your stay. Baha is Windermere’s newest super-venue and it showcases live music six nights a week. There’s certainly a lot more to the Lake District than lakes!
