Lying in a leafy clearing above the shores of one of Britain’s most iconic lakes sits The Ryebeck. A beautiful, peaceful and unpretentious country house, The Ryebeck is a place to kick back, relax and enjoy the informal friendly, home from home atmosphere.
Standard Bedrooms, which are, with two exceptions, situated in the main hotel. Because of the age and layout of such an old House they are the snuggest of our bedrooms with very limited views of the grounds. We have three Cosy Bedrooms, situated on either the first or the second floor. These are lovely quiet rooms, which benefit from a partial view of the grounds. Jolly Good rooms are on the ground floor with their own secluded patio area. Our Superb Bedrooms are situated either on the ground floor with their own private patios or upstairs with views over the grounds. These rooms are slightly larger than the other rooms and have either a large walk in shower or bath with shower over. Grand Rooms we named after the local Cumbrian dialect for excellent. These three bedrooms are the largest and most popular of all our bedrooms, with a large window overlooking Windermere. In each room there is a large six foot bed, double ended tub in the en suite, and a couple of easy chairs to relax into with a cup of Lakeland tea and a homemade biscuit!
Dinner in our terrace restaurant overlooking Lake Windermere has long been a Lake District tradition. Dominic Clarke’s superb food combined with our warm hospitality and ambience provide a wonderful dining experience. Our 4-course Dinner is served every night from 6.30pm until 9.00pm and includes canapés and freshly made bread. We also serve a modern take on the traditional Sunday lunch every week from 12.00pm until 2.15pm.

We’re frequent travellers to the Lakes & have stayed in lots of hotels at different times of the year. The Ryebeck is by far the best hotel we have stayed in, excellent service, rooms are comfortable & clean, we have dogs so they recommended a ground floor room with double doors on to the garden! Fabulous for the pooches! Now to the food.... WOW! Just amazing! Head chef Nick Edgar is some kind of wizard!! I’m now dreaming of when I can return to sample more of his dishes! He came out to chat to us informing us of some of his new dishes and explaining the menu. His ‘smoked Cumbrian cheese’ starter is beyond exceptional... honestly THE best food I’ve had in years!!! Can’t recommend this place enough! Already planning our next visit!! We didn’t take pictures of the food as we are strictly no phones at the table we’d rather chat & enjoy!

Our son treated us to a dinner bed and breakfast which we extended a further night. From check in to check out it was perfect. Our welcome was very nice with plenty of information and a leaflet of local walks from the hotel. The room was excellent and very clean with everything we needed. Breakfast was cooked and present very well with lots of choices. We had dinner on Saturday night. The service presentation and the quality of the food was second to non, my wife had an intolerance to onions they were very good insuring that the meal was correct. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Collapse

We have just left the ryebeck today on our 4th visit there. We spent a lovely night away here for my fiances birthday in a grand room with a lake view. The room was lovely with an amazing view on lake windermere. This is the 4th different room we have stayed in now at the ryebeck and we are impressed everytime. The room was very spacious with a four poster bed...loved it. As for the staff... they are the most friendliest and welcoming,they cannot do enough for you and make your stay a memorable one. They are so keen to accommodate anything you need whilst you are there. I had mentioned in an email that me and my partner were thinking of getting married here and it was lovely to know that they had remebered. They had left lots of information in the room for us and the restaurant manager ( sorry forgotten your name) was so helpful with extra information and was so keen and happy to be helping us along our journey which impressed us. So thankyou for that :) we dined in the evening as always here and yet again no disappointment what so ever the food is just amazing so many flavours we just really enjoyed it. The classy breakfast is also lovely always look forward to this in the morning. So thankyou to your amazing chef and his hard work. I have read on here that people arnt happy with the service charge and im not sure why as the staff work really hard and they really do make your stay perfect. Another lovely night thankyou the ryebeck team and we will see you soon. Zoe & scotty X Collapse

Found this by chance and already planning to come back. We booked this online, part of some web offer. Communications were excellent (asked for an upstairs room with a bit of a view) - and boy did we get a very good room with an excellent view. It was at the back(?) of the hotel, ovelooking the grounds and the lake itself The reception staff were excellent upon checking in, the room was very clean, fresh and modern. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Breakfasts were as big as you wanted, cereals, fruit, porrige and a full English and then everything inbetween. The food in the restaurant in the evening was very good - it was a relatively small menu but that was reflected in the quality of the ingredients with most of them being local and seasonal. Highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant and we will be coming back again Oh and sitting round the fire in the downstairs lounge on the very comfy sofas, having afternoon tea and reading the papers - it was just what our souls needed in the run up to Christmas. We really enjoyed our break. Collapse
