The Macdonald Old England Hotel is one of the finest 4-star hotels in the breathtaking Lake District; the perfect base for a relaxing hen party. Set on the shores of Lake Windermere – the largest natural lake in England – this hotel boasts wonderful views over the tranquil surroundings. The surrounding area is a charming retreat from the modern world. Walk by the private jetties and moorings on the lake – you can even hire the private jetty and enjoy the glorious scenery – and take a trip around the lush green gardens. Kendal, famed for Kendal Mint Cake, is around a 30 minute drive away, if you would like to explore further afield.
The soothing Elemis Spa is relaxation and luxury personified. Trained beauty therapists work in the spa, where you can unwind with a rejuvenating treatment. And, alongside the spa, there is also a state of the art technogym and a 20 metre heated swimming pool. Start the day off with a refreshing dip in the pool before a strong coffee in the Terrace Lounge.
The hotel’s 106 guest rooms boast an ethos to comfort, overlooking the gorgeous lakes of the Lake District. The traditionally furnished rooms also have complimentary WiFi – so you can keep everyone updated on what a blissful time you are having on your hen weekend.
The award-winning restaurant has spectacular lakeside views, affectionately known as the ‘restaurant on the lake’. The eatery proudly holds AA Rosettes for their cuisine – and you can tuck into anything; from pan seared fillet of Scottish salmon, to roast lamb rump, to beef burgers. There is also the elegant lounge and cocktail bar, which serves Costa coffee during the day and delicious cocktails to enjoy on the sun terrace.
