The family-run Applegarth Villa Hotel occupies an enviable location in the heart of popular Windermere. Tucked away in a secluded area close to the bustling centre, this adult only venue offers easy access to everything that the beautiful Lake District has to offer while providing luxurious accommodation and dining of the highest quality. The magnificent building retains original Victorian features including rich oak panelling and stained glass windows which blend seamlessly with stunning contemporary decor and furnishings. A choice of individually designed superior en suite bedrooms provide every comfort and facility for the discerning guest. In addition, seven luxury suites are housed in the adjacent coach house, each with its own private hot tub, terrace or balcony. Simply relax and allow yourself to be pampered. Dogs are welcome too by prior arrangement in ground floor accommodation with outside access.

Not surprisingly, this family run hotel has gained a prestigious reputation for its award-winning cuisine. Relax with a pre-dinner drink in the sumptuous bar before heading into the elegant Apple Restaurant to enjoy fine dining, breakfast or afternoon tea. The less formal conservatory restaurant provides delightful views across the Lakeland fells and the attractive outdoor terrace is the ideal spot to enjoy a drink in the warmer months. A fantastic drinks menu, including fine wines, gins, fabulous cocktails and excellent selection of whiskies, is the perfect accompaniment to the meal of your choice.

The head chef and team are proud to source local Cumbrian produce in the creation of wonderful fresh, seasonal British dishes which are beautifully presented at your table. The impressive menus offer appetising starters, delicious main courses, side dishes, and irresistible desserts. Those requiring a gluten free or vegetarian diet are also well catered for. Most of the menu is available gluten free (GF) and dishes can also be adapted on request (*-). The friendly and knowledgeable staff are only too happy to answer questions regarding food preparation and ingredients and to advise on menu choice. A gluten free full English breakfast (including sausages and black pudding) is also available and the renowned Applegarth Afternoon Tea can be made gluten free on request.

The Applegarth Villa Hotel looks forward to welcoming you and will endeavour to make your visit a memorable experience.
