Conveniently located just 15 minutes drive from junction 40 of the M6 motorway, within the boundaries of England’s largest national park, is the peaceful luxury resort of Whitbarrow Village.
Its picturesque location in the foothills of Blencathra Fell – near Penrith and Keswick – has made it one of the Lake District’s most popular holiday resorts.
And viewing the scenery, it’s not surprising that local poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) dreamed of preserving the area’s wild, natural beauty forever.
Today, the park stretches for nearly 900 square miles, encompassing 1,800 miles of footpaths.
In converting an 18th century Cumbrian farm known as Whitbarrow Hall in 1986, the original owners succeeded in retaining the unique local character.
The cobbled village street runs between the converted natural stone buildings, with paths leading off through pretty archways to flower-decked courtyards, each with its own lawned area.
Noted for its welcoming atmosphere, Whitbarrow Village is the ideal spot to relax completely.
And when you’re not doing that, the resort offers an excellent range of leisure facilities, including:
• Fully equipped Leisure Club with:
• Heated swimming pool
• Spa bath
• Steam room
• Full size snooker table
• Pool table
• Fully equipped gym and table tennis
Leisure centre has undergone a complete refurbishment and will now include the following:
New children’s splash pool
New wet seating area
Family changing area
Relocation of sauna and steam room
Brand new gym
New reception area overlooking the pool
New 200 seater restaurant.
