The Samling Hotel

The Samling Hotel is in the Lake District in the United Kingdom. This hotel offers an exceptional experience for those seeking a tranquil retreat in a natural setting. From the moment you arrive, you will be greeted with world-class service, amenities, and views of Lake Windermere. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or a peaceful solo escape, The Samling Hotel has something to offer. Join us as we delve into the unique features and experiences that make this hotel a destination unlike any other.


The Samling Hotel offers panoramic views over the Lake, along Windermere, and to the west, towards Coniston Old Man. It provides a fine dining experience with an award-winning wine list and attentive and unobtrusive service. The Samling Hotel is the perfect base to discover the Lake District, England's most stunning region.

In 67 acres, you will find all the charm of the Lake District in one location. This hotel is also home to various landscapes. They include old woodlands, fellsides, and hay meadows. There are also vegetable gardens, beehives, and an ornamental water feature that cascades down the hillside. They channel local springs underneath and around the lake and hotel.

The area is also home to various wildlife, plants, and birds. There are even some moths that look exotic. Wildlife is attracted to the other areas of the gardens, particularly vegetable beds. Sometimes, they succeed in savoring gardeners' efforts. They have a taste for exotic microgreens, more so than what they find in the woods.


The hotel, 350 feet high above Windermere, sits in the middle of 67 acres. It also has gardens and pastures behind it, offering panoramic views. The entrance is along the A591 route that runs north to south through the Lakes. The hotel is also easily accessible and near towns like Bowness and Ambleside. Besides, the hotel is a good starting point for a couple of short walks. However, you'll need a vehicle to explore further.

Style and Character

In 2002, the whitewashed Gothic Revival house became a boutique hotel. Later, an additional dining room with a glass wall and terrace were added. This is more of a townhouse feel than a country home. It features a mix of softly textured walls, fluffy carpets, velvet furniture, and shimmering drapes. They are all in silver, blue, and gray. The decor is minimal but elegant, with glass bowls and artful flowers carefully placed. Moreover, the walls feature a collection of Picasso's, Miro's, and other paintings.

Service and Facilities

You can relax in the sitting room or outside on the terraces. There are also gardens and woodlands. The hot tub is free, but you must book it to guarantee exclusive use. Moreover, valet parking and a lakeside jetty are available for those arriving by boat. You can also book a wine or cocktail master class if it rains. Besides, you may see deer, rabbits, and birds around the property. The staff are also friendly and respectful. They want to make sure guests have the best experience possible.


Like the rest of the hotel, the 12 rooms are perfect studies of creamy calm. Think of powder-soft carpets. The walls are made of milky white velvet. There are couches, pillows, and beds. The furniture is sleek. There are no frills or fuss here, just soothing spaces. The colors are also delicate and pale, with carefully selected accents. Perhaps blush pink vases or mirrors on tables for interest. The walls also have abstract artwork. All have marble bathrooms, and most have views of a lake or garden.

All the rooms are spacious except for two Classic Rooms. Cottages offer the most significant rooms. Some are on two or three stories. Besides, the Wilderness offers glamping in the summer on an elevated terrace with stunning views. There are also two 'prospector tents'. Each has a separate bathroom and is fully furnished. They can accommodate up to four people. A private butler and chef serve breakfast and dinner in a canvas tent or around an open fire. The standard double rooms are also pet-friendly.


The Gathering is a renovated Dutch Barn that offers a casual dining experience. The bells-and-whistles restaurant offers a fine-dining tasting menu. Both have stunning lake views. Robby Jenks is a talented chef who trained under Michael Caines. His cooking style is creative and intellectual, with a playful side.

An example is a lime, mint, and rum mojito on a fork to tingle the taste buds. The taster portions of the menu are reasonable. They include halibut, hazelnuts, turnip, sorrel, and local hogget with a punchy, dill-based sauce.

The Gathering menu has a more informal feel yet is still flavorful. You can order items such as salmon with lime and beetroots, beef with king oyster mushrooms, truffled potatoes, and more. Moreover, there are 600 wines on the list, including 40 Champagnes and English Sparkling wines alone. Their Coravin system also lets you try some of the best wines in the world by the bottle.

Breakfasts are short and sweet but still tasty. They include yogurt and homemade cereal, smoked fish with spinach, poached eggs, and omelets. Besides, all service staff are friendly and smart. There is no problem here. You can also order green teas and hot chocolates in different flavors. The hotel was also awarded a Michelin star in 2023.


You will receive a list of available activities with your confirmation of booking. Full details are also included in the room information upon arrival. Visit the literary houses of The Wordsworth Trust, Dove Cottage, and Beatrix Potter's Hill Top. You can also take a trip back in time to the violent Border Wars of the lakes when King Dunmail did a defiant act that inspired the legend Excalibur. The Lowther Castle was the prison of Mary Queen of Scots during the reign of the king.


The Samling Hotel is a hidden gem in England's Lake District. It offers a peaceful retreat for guests seeking a truly remarkable experience. Expect stunning views of Lake Windermere, world-class amenities, and impeccable service. Book your stay today and explore all this exclusive boutique hotel offers.
