A Luxury Spa Break Review with The Beech Hill Hotel & Spa – Review: October 2018
The Beautiful Beech Hill Hotel & Spa is boastfully situated in an enviable postcode on the shores of the lovely Lake District.
Straight away there is a wonderful warm and homely feel about the place, with full on fire and fabulous fresh floral bouquets in abundance.
A breath-taking moment, as we entered our room which revealed a beautiful bay window with a wow view across the picturesque lake.
The sensational Select Plus room with a super large wardrobe and long mirror was spacious, cosy and décor consisted of subtle neutral and earthy tones.
The Ryebeck Hotel Review: February 2018
Built in 1904, by prominent local builders G.H Pattinson, and formerly known as Fayrer Holme, The Ryebeck country house hotel has an enviable postcode located within five acres of gardens overlooking Lake Windermere.
Sympathetic, yet extensive renovations reflect and retain the original features and historical charm by combining contemporary and traditional to create an amazing Arts & Crafts decor with a quirky eclectic feel, which provides a unique space for guests to relax, reflect and recharge.
Delightful Duncan, the hotel manager, was the first face, that I saw, upon entry into this spectacular hotel, an opulent yet unpretentious, homely, warm and inviting place to be.
Checked in to one of the four gorgeous Grand rooms in the main building and they live up to the expectations of their Cumbrian dialectal name being “reet grand”, if anything it is an understatement.
