Perfect for: Luxury Country House Hotels, Romantic Getaways

In the early 1780's between the American War of Independence and the French Revolution, Mr Edward Thorneycroft built a house overlooking one of the most beautiful lakes in Britain, Lake Windermere. Despite the turbulent times, it was, and still is, a haven of calm and tranquility.

By the 1800's, The Samling was owned by John Benson, landlord of William Wordsworth. Walking over from Dove Cottage to pay his rent, the poet passed through some of Britain's most gorgeous landscapes, an environment that has inspired some of the greatest verses in our language and one that you can still enjoy today.

The decor is stylishly chic and luxuriously relaxed, with roaring log fires, wood panelled walls and heavy drapes. All of the bedrooms are startlingly different and all but two have stunning views over Lake Windermere. There are six rooms in the main house and the rest are in stone cottages scattered in the grounds. In the African-themed bathroom of The Bothy, a cottage with a patio, is a rainshower bath, said to have once belonged to Winston Churchill.

The award-winning Michelin starred restaurant offers food made from only the finest, freshest local ingredients, prepared with imagination, panache and a lightness of touch. The extensive grounds and woodland are dotted with well-chosen contemporary works of art complementing the mood of each part of the garden. The hotel can also arrange a trip on one of Lake Windermere's steam cruisers and other activities include sailing, fell walking, golf, horse riding and fly fishing with a local guide. Finally, there is a hot tub, with what must be the most inspirational view in Britain.

Set in its own sixty seven acre estate, The Samling is like no other place you have stayed. Your luxury escape will introduce you to another orbit of hospitality, comfort and fine food.
