Borrowdale. The Leathes Head. Thanks to the daughter of a Liverpool shipowner, a lovely spot ‘in the heart of beautiful Borrowdale’ can be enjoyed by all who stay at this 11 bedroom hotel. There are three acres (1.2ha) of grounds and beyond that wonderful walking country. Some bedrooms are on the ground floor along with the Graphite Bar, a lounge and the two AA rosetted restaurant.

Braithwaite, near Keswick. The Cottage in the Wood. ‘A cocoon of miraculous comfort and pleasure,’ a Guardian travel writer once said of this Michelin starred restaurant-with-rooms, located in England’s only mountain forest (Whinlatter). Magic Hill is a good first line for any address so expect something a little special at this nine bedroom oasis of calm. The two mountain view rooms called Oak and Ash live up to every expectation with their views across the forest valley to the Skiddaw range.
