With Broadoaks you have a found a real gem and it certainly ticks all the boxes for romance, country house chic, gourmet dining and even welcoming our four-legged friends. From the moment you approach its sweeping drive, pass the manicured lawns with the lover’s swing beneath the broad oak tree and admire the central fountain, the 19th century house stands impressively looking out across 7 acres of land and breathtaking views of the Lake District - you can even hear the beck that runs through the hotel grounds.
Once inside, you will be greeted warmly by its young and friendly staff on arrival. The arts and crafts music room is welcoming with its roaring fire and grand piano whilst the Michelin recommended restaurant offers fine dining by its creative and considerate chef. Each of the 16 en-suite bedrooms – all named after trees in the Lake District, are beautifully and individually decorated with tasteful period styling. Four poster beds, deep colours, silk cushions and whirlpools in the bathrooms are just some of the features. In each room, there’s a personalised letter welcoming the guests, with refreshments and chocolates thoughtfully laid out.
What’s more, the hotel is pet-friendly too. Rooms on the ground floor can cater for pets and there’s even a welcoming letter for your pet and a nutritious Four Paws Menu approved by the hotel’s resident dog, Molly. There’s an excellent choice of walks straight from the hotel offering an invigorating day’s dog walking.
As part of its exciting new refurbishment plans for 2011, Broadoaks Country House Hotel in Windermere has completed work on creating a brand new romantic suite called “The Boudoir at Broadoaks”. This exclusive suite will give its guests something just that little bit special in allowing its occupants to have complete seclusion from other guests.
A stunning looking suite, with its own driveway and entrance, it has a super-king-sized hand carved 4 poster bed, a huge ornate mirror on the wall, Osborn & Little wallpaper and Farrow & Ball paint and a very lavish bathroom complete with wet room and Jacuzzi bath. Occupants will be able to order door-to-door room service and enjoy private dining on its outside terrace in summer months. The suite is also fitted with a Bang and Olufsen sound system and TV unit to play mellow tunes whilst relaxing.
In addition to the Boudoir, Broadoaks has also undergone a transformation of its hall, restaurant, landing and stairs. Creating a luxurious boutique feel, the hallway has been redecorated using designer wallpaper and paint and complimented with a contemporary style carpet throughout. Two other existing bedrooms have had a complete makeover to similar effect, creating a new “Victoria Bijou” look.
Sunday lunch at Broadoaks restaurant is a decadent feast of either 3 or 4 courses. Quality local Lake District meats are served in a traditional way with a selection of market vegetables and roast potatoes silver served to your table. Come and relax for the afternoon with lunch and coffee on the terrace, the perfect way to wind down the week.
