Luxury Accommodation in the Lake District

Visitors to the Lake District seeking luxury accommodation will find a variety of options available.  At the Rowley Estates, we provide 5* rated award winning accommodation in a variety of holiday cottages ranging in size from 2 bedrooms to 12 bedrooms.   We have noticed a number of five star luxury hotels building private chalets and cottages in their grounds  as guests seek a chance to unwind in privacy whilst enjoying the amenities and features of a five star luxury cottage.

We differentiate our luxury holiday accommodation in the Lake District through the following:

  • Gold Award winning cottages – All of our halls and cottages have achieved “Gold Award” status with the Quality in Tourism review board of Visit England.  This is awarded to cottages which have achieved exceptional quality in all areas, in particular with respect to service and hospitality.
  • Extremely well equipped kitchens with Stella pots and pans, Agas (including cookbooks & instructions for them), Cast iron enamelled casserole pots, a full compliment of red & white wine and champagne glasses, linen table clothes and napkins, candles, complete china and cutlery settings for formal and informal dinners.
  • The little things you may find helpful – We provide matches, paper towels, cling film, aluminium foil, laundry soap, dish washer tablets. There is a generous stock of kitchen necessities including a spice rack & a bottle of olive oil in the kitchen.
  • Luxury beds & Egyptian cotton bed linens and a generous supply of fluffy white towels including bath sheets, hand towels, face cloths and bath mats.  We make the beds with feather pillows and feather duvets but are happy to change these over to polycotton pillows & duvets if any of our guests would prefer non feather pillows & duvets (it would be helpful if you would let us know in advance of your visit if you would like this changeover).  Some of our bedrooms have beds which may be joined together as doubles or separated into twins if that is preferred.  We will also help with cots and associated linen for these if that would be helpful.
  • Ensuite bedrooms with crisp clean bathrooms fitted with high quality chrome sanitaryware, oak toilet seats, heated towel rails and excellent water pressure.  At Blencowe Hall and its cottages (Cazenovia Hall, Riverain and Wythburn Cottage) the water supply is private to our estate and filtered through the adjoining limestone escarpment before descending down into the grounds of Blencowe Hall.
  • Access and facilities for guests with limited mobility.  Within the constraints of the historic buildings within our family estate, we have endeavoured to make our 5* luxury accommodation suitable for guests which have limited mobility or who require wheelchair access.  Blencowe Hall, Cazenovia Hall, Glassonby Hall, Hause Hall Farm, Riverain and Wythburn all have ensuite ground floor bedrooms.  At Hause Hall Farm, the ground floor accommodation is virtually step free (one two inch step from a flagstone floor down to the solid oak flooring).  We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your ease of access requirements and would be happy to help facilitate your visit and provide any custom solutions which would help.
