Storrs Hall, Windermere, Lake District
Storrs Hall is a romantically-situated large Lakeland hotel, which in recent years has also been able to offer luxurious lakeside Suites within its grounds. It occupies an ideal position for anyone who wants to enjoy Lake Windermere, as its lawns and woods offer super views from the lake shores; boat trips can also be arranged from a private jetty. There is a wide range of accommodation and, as such, the hotel suits many people, from those seeking modern luxury and pampering in private suites, to those wanting to enjoy the traditions of the main hotel, where Wordsworth once recited 'Daffodils'. The restaurant can serve good food and the historic wooden bar is a charming spot for a nightcap.
We loved being able to admire the lake in peace from shingle bays that are on the lake shore within the grounds.
Located on the shores of Windermere, it's the ideal base to explore the Lake District National Park.

Style & Character
The hotel suits those who want views of Lake Windermere in tranquil surroundings. Honeymooning couples love the Lakeside Suites, while families are happy too. The Lakeside Suites are set away from the main hotel, yet the grounds still feel expansive and it is easy to escape other guests.
Service & Facilities
Hotel staff could even help organise wedding proposals, waiting behind trees to pop iced bottles of bubbly.
