Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel Windermere Review: October 2019

The Holbeck Ghyll, situated between Bowness on Windermere and Ambleside, is the perfect snug hideaway with a home away from home feel.

The Holbeck Ghyll has been graced with the presence of many celebs such as Rennie Zellweger during her filming of Miss Potter.
