#Bootique at Waterhead

Re-defining ‘boutique’. We're uncovering local experiences in the heart of the Lake District

Waterhead hotel maintains a luxury, intimate and friendly feel, but it isn’t solely about personal turndown service, fluffy bathrobes, local in-room treats, excellent food or bespoke decoration. ‘#Bootique’ at Waterhead encompasses all of that but so much more; bootique starts with uncompromised personal customer service and facilities and ends with your individual interests being explored in an area of unmatched beauty, a World Heritage site, to create unrivalled memories which last forever.

It’s pulling your boots on, leaving the car behind and exploring the fells Wainwright once called home. It’s wandering through a town the Romans created and the Vikings named. It’s a romantic getaway or a chance to bond with the family. It’s absorbing the wealth of local delicacies and appreciating the native trades. It starts and ends with you.

Explore the world of #Bootique and book a ‘bootique break’ at Waterhead Hotel.
