Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa
Lodore Falls, so-called for its location right next to its namesake higgledy-piggledy waterfall, is a must-visit for those who appreciate hiking, wild swimming and luxurious, man-made pools in equal measure. It looks out over Derwentwater, a serene spot to make a splash and not to chilly either if you visit in late summer. The hotel's heated hydrotherapy pool is as magical on a blue-skies day as it is a rainy one, when puffs of steam float on the water's surface, adding to the craggy scenery's palpable melodrama.
