|Applegarth Villa and Restaurant|
Surprisingly the Lake District is somewhere I've never visited, even though I've travelled far, I feel I've neglected what's on my own doorstep. With it being my first visit I wanted absolute luxury and to enjoy a lovely, relaxing few days away. Which is when we came across Applegarth Villas. A beautiful boutique hotel, including newly opened hot tub suites with their own little sun terraces. Situated right in the centre of Windermere it was perfect for a walk to the local shops and restaurants and a 5 minute drive to the lakeside.
We booked last minute and opted for a Luxury room with an amazing, colour changing jacuzzi bath and a TV with netflix (always a winner). All the rooms are different, which is a really nice touch, so whether you're looking for a 7-foot bed, 4 poster, hot tub or balcony they'll be something to take your fancy. The breakfast was beautiful too, with the cute little jam pots and perfectly cooked eggs. The staff were super friendly and very attentive, with our champagne flute requests and ice buckets. We also had an evening meal there one night, the food was amazing more like a 5 star restaurant, not your typical hotel dinner.
All in all we had a lovely stay here. The hotel itself seemed very quite, we hardly saw anyone but the staff for the two nights we were there. If you're looking for a boutique hotel, with a great location and absolutely beautiful rooms this is your place. You can even take your dogs now too! Perfect for that break with your pooch in the lakes.
Have you visited the lakes before? Can you recommend any luxury boutique hotels?
