Contemporary comfort combined with a sense of adventure is what’s waiting for you at Another Place.

The modern hotel, situated on the sparkling shores of Ullswater, offers a relaxed environment to take it easy with your favourite people – or of course, solo – whilst still remaining exclusive and high-end.

Laid-back lakeside living comes in the form of six handcrafted shepherd huts, each with their own stargazing roof over a cosy double bed, lounge area with log burner, and freestanding bath with country views. Soho House throws and Joules dog beds (yes, dogs are welcome too) add a touch of luxe to this rural retreat. Enjoy your morning brew surrounded by nature on your own garden terrace, made private by colourful plants, trees and flowers, or savour toasted marshmallows by the fairy-lit fire pit – firewood and marshmallows are kindly included.

At the front desk, there are handy maps of the many walking routes nearby, plus wellies for those who may need them. The waterfall walk at Aira Force and Gowbarrow is stunning; a circular walk passing through woodland and open glades, all accompanied by roaring sounds from the waterfall gorge.

And aside from hiking, there are many other ways to explore the wilderness at Another Place. You can swim beneath a full moon, kayak or paddleboard across the lake, reconnect the mind and body with pilates and yoga, or you can even ski, yes ski, down mountains in the most alpine area of England.

If you prefer a less active routine, take in the views from the hotel spa’s panoramic pool, which is flanked by two glass walls that blur the boundary between you and the Ullswater lake. Coming back to good food after a jam-packed day is a must. At Another Place, there’s The Living Space bar with deep-set sofas and a casual crowd-pleasing menu, or the more formal Rampsbeck Restaurant, offering a three-course seasonal menu influenced by the flavours of the local landscape.

At the end of the vegetable garden with glorious views of the lake, you’ll find The Glasshouse, which serves pizza and cocktails, and can even be hired for events.

Another Place is definitely not just another place.
