Askham Hall is Located in a quiet and picturesque village in Cumbria, within easy access to junction 40 of the M6. Set in a beautiful lesser-known part of the Lake District, close to Penrith and Lake Ullswater, the surrounding mountains, rivers, lakes, wildlife and history make this an idyllic spot to visit. There are a number of woodland trails that take in the views down to the river Lowther.
The property has a range of rooms which perfectly combine traditional and contemporary design. 17th-century fireplaces, antique wallpaper and oak buttresses hark back to its original era, while en suite bathrooms, luxury linens, and modern room amenities such as Bluetooth radios, flat-screen televisions and wireless internet access highlight its current purpose as a stylish hotel.
The dining area has three exquisite rooms, with local chef Richard Swale at the helm in the kitchen. He has a deep understanding of the wild foods and produce grown and reared onsite, and has even brought his own rare-breed chickens to Askham. Guests can savour delicacies such as fruits and root vegetables harvested by the team, Askham pork or beef, or game and roe deer from the nearby woods and moors.
Askham Hall comes complete with a new indulgent spa, exclusively available for guests staying overnight. The spa features an outdoor heated pool, a Swedish sauna and more than 25 tempting treatments, which can either be taken in a treatment room or in the comfort of your own bedroom. Please be sure to pre-book treatments before arrival to avoid disappointment.
