Lakes and Lancashire getaways

If winter seems to be lasting longer than normal, it could be time to break your hibernation with a trip out of the city. These six hotels are all within a few hours drive of Manchester, but with sea views and snow-topped mountain ranges, they feel like a world away.

Low Wood Bay, Windermere
Low Wood Bay provides the ideal setting to celebrate the start of the spring season. The atmosphere is as inspirational as the colourful views from this lake shore hotel, its splendour and style matched only by the excellent service. The prestigious leisure complex and accommodation make an overnight stay a great reason to celebrate any occasion at Low Wood Bay.

The Wild Boar, Gilpin valley near Windermere
Located in the picturesque Gilpin valley and set within 73 acres of unspoilt woodland, The Wild Boar with its own grill and smokehouse offers a different view on country living. Ideal for any celebration, with cosy log fires and a welcoming atmosphere, it's the perfect venue for a secluded getaway to discover the English Lakes. Recent re-development has brought some beautifully appointed features and luxury rooms to make the experience even more memorable at The Wild Boar.

Storrs Hall, Windermere
Storrs Hall is an extraordinary Georgian Mansion set within 17 acres of stunning grounds. With its beautiful position and spectacular views over Lake Windermere, it provides an idyllic setting for sophisticated celebrations. Traditional yet informal dining is offered in the award-winning Terrace Restaurant and sumptuous rooms and suites can provide an exceptional seasonal experience.

The Midland, Morecambe Bay
Offering a stylish setting for any celebration, The Midland is a fantastic hotel that has been lovingly restored to its 1930's fame. The Midland is an iconic Art Deco classic, with views sweeping across Morecambe Bay to the Lake District beyond. Choose this elegant gem of the coastline for the ultimate escapism.

Lancaster House
From the balconied Reception Lounge to the open fire, Lancaster House is a place to savour the good things in life, such as excellent cuisine from award-winning Foodworks Restaurant, or a drink in the courtyard of The Sandeman's Bar.
