The hotel is home to two restaurants, The Living Space, a large bar leading onto a terrace serving a more casual menu for lunch and dinner, while Rampsbeck restaurant is open for dinner and boasts a British menu focusing on Cumbrian produce.
There is also a swim club, with lake-view swimming pool, outdoor hot tub, sauna, gym and three treatment rooms.
Open-water swimming, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, cycling, walking, and skiing can all be done from the hotel in a bid to recreate the success seen at Cornwall’s Watergate Bay.
The building in Rampsbeck was first acquired by the group is 2015 and kickstarts the launch of the Another Place brand, with six hotels anticipated in 10 years including the aspiration of growing into northern Europe and America.
