Gill Beck Hall

Peace in the heart of the Lake District

A beautiful country house

With stunning lakeside gardens

line

Surrounded by a tranquil 5,000-acre estate on the shores of Lake Windermere, Gill Beck Hall is in the heart of the Lake District and yet far from the hustle and bustle. With grace and style, it manages to pull off an effortless mix of country estate luxury and home-from-home comfort.

The elegant 17th century hall offers a relaxed country house ambience, with stunning feature fireplaces, wood panelled walls and sumptuous bedrooms. With space for up to 18 guests in the  main hall and a further six guests in the pretty, self-contained Dairy Cottage, it’s perfect for celebrations, large family gatherings and group activity holidays.

Outside, the manicured grounds give way to a tarn-fed pond and a private two-acre woodland. With stunning views, the location is idyllic and an ideal base too, for exploring the Lake District.

Prices from £2,800

Based on a 3-night weekend stay.

Accommodates 18 (or 24 with an additional cottage)

There are 8 bedrooms in the main house.  Option to add an additional cottage with 3 further bedrooms.

In the Lake District

Near the shoreline of the beautiful Lake Windermere

 

A secluded location

Close to the shore of Lake Windermere

line

Gill Beck Hall is a place to escape and enjoy the company of those you love. Every comfort is considered in the oak-beamed lounge, with its feature open fireplace and comfy sofas. Dinner is served in the wood-panelled dining room, where the French windows open out onto well-tended lawns. A magnificent hallway leads to a cosy second lounge and a large, well-equipped farmhouse kitchen.

Step through the French windows to fully appreciate the gardens, with fields and fells beyond, and the shores of Lake Windermere before you. The four-acre grounds are restful and natural. You can picnic in the sunshine, by the pond, or cross the stream via the little bridge to explore the two-acre private wood. The expansive lawns are bordered by delightful topiary trees, to complete this tranquil, natural oasis.

      .

Sumptuous and stylish bedrooms

With standout features

line

There are nine individually designed bedrooms in the main hall, all with names drawn from the locality, and a further two doubles and a twin in the Dairy Cottage. The rooms are individually styled with some amazing features, from the grand one-off four-poster ‘Morpheus’ bed in Catbells, to the delightful 17th Century details in the sumptuous Cunsey suite. Here, you might while away a few hours on the window seat, lost in a  book or simply taking in the views.

The ensuite bathrooms follow in style, with a roll top bath here, underfloor heating there and all the finishing touches you would expect from this beautifully styled and well-considered accommodation. The three cosy bedrooms in the cottage have views across the grounds and share a family bathroom.

Lakeland adventures

And peaceful down time

line

The Lake District is a walker’s paradise; a nature lover’s dream and an adventurer’s playground. Gill Beck Hall is right at the heart of things and yet amazingly peaceful, allowing you to enjoy adventures and relax with nature.

The walking starts at your doorstep, from a ramble through the private two-acre wood or scenic trail along the water’s edge, to a trek across the fells with spectacular views to reward you.

And there surely isn’t a more perfect location than the Lake District for an adventure holiday. Choose an exclusive Gill Beck Hall adventure package to enjoy sailing, clay pigeon shooting, archery and much more.

Local attractions for your days out include cruises on Lake Windermere, the Beatrix Potter Museum and the Wordsworth trail. Wander through the Lakeland villages, making sure you drop in to sample the famous Grasmere Gingerbread from the same little cottage it was first baked by Sarah Nelson in 1854.
