The New Dungeon Ghyll in Cumbria benefits from its striking location in six acres of well-kept gardens and view across the Langdale Valley in the Lake District National Park. The hotel's 20 comfortable rooms, some with flat-screen television, others with four-poster bed, are a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. The hotel's quaint restaurant boasts roaring fires and a comforting menu of classics. There are several lakes nearby where guests can enjoy water sports. Hiking and walking is a must. Shopping can be done in Ambleside and Windermere.
