We spent two nights at the Samling between Christmas and New Year and it was perfect in every way. The food is incredible, the staff are great - very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous but in no way stuffy - we felt completely at home for the 3 days we spent there! The room was great, there was even a Christmas tree in the corner. We had one of the rooms without a lake view, but you didn't have to go far to see it so it was of no consequence to us.
The location of the hotel between Windermere and Ambleside is great for an easy walk to either, and the combination of the hotel and the lakes at this time (or any time) of year made for an unforgettable anniversary break. Anywhere else in this area would be a huge compromise!
