The first hotel experience for the Another Place lifestyle brand is a rural retreat in the heart of the Lake District, inspired by the ice-age ribbon carved lake nestled between the mountains, the natural views so loved by Wordsworth the poet, stories of ghostly horses, and the first water speed record set on Ullswater Lake in the 1950’s. We set out to imagine ways for guests to get as close to the breathtaking landscape as possible, to create their own stories and memories here.
A haven for active relaxation
Bringing guests as close to the breath-taking landscape as possible
The Swim Club is a hallmark of the Another Place brand. Full-height windows surround a 20m infinity-feeling pool, flanked by glass and natural skylight, giving the feeling of swimming into the hills. We envisioned the new wing as a luxurious ‘barn’ extension to the original white Georgian house, evoking a simple rustic functionality. In the 40 signature bedrooms we combined antique furniture with bespoke new additions, celebrating the contrast between old and new.
Everything the guest touches is designed to embrace nature and relaxed living - from the rust-coloured throws and woollen tartans reflecting the vibrant woodlands' earthy tones and changing seasons, to the local craftsmanship and collection of gathering spaces at Another Place. A carefully curated shop retails the best of Another Place accessories, so guests can take a piece of their holiday experience home.
The brand’s standards of quality and local luxury are now established, to be emulated throughout the expanding hotel collection.
