accomodation near lake windemere in september

We are planning a trip to the Lake district in mid-late september and would like advise on hotels. We would like a relaxing stay with nice views (from our actual hotel room; so frequently its' unclear whose room got the view shown in the internet photos!) and good restaurant food.

Would the Merewood country house hotel fit this description? Also does anybody know about the McDonald Old England House Hotel? It looked interesting but when we tried to call the phone # we get a "phone is no longer in service" message.

thanks

There are many many lakeview hotels in the area. I would suggest narrowing down your geographical choice first and then seeing which hotels can give you the lake views you seek. Some actually back onto the lakes and some are higher up but further away still giving lake views.

As an introduction first timers tend to stay around Windermere and Ambleside as you are closer to more tourist attractions whereas Keswick is generally better for mountain views.

I could be wrong but it looks like somewhere around Windermere is probably going to tick your boxes. Another consideration is whether you will have a rental car or whether you will be relying on public transport. The former will give you much greater access to the less trodden paths.

Agree re Fayrer Garden, most of their rooms have views of the lake, some have terraces too. The Beech Hill is another good option, or Lindeth Howe - which used to belong to Beatrix Potter.

Armathwaite Hall by Bassenthwaite has the most stunning views I've ever seen.
