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 love to stay at the lovely quiet old country hotels around Lake Windermere when we visit The Lake District so our stay at The Ryebeck was ideal in this respect. The lady who booked two bedrooms on my behalf at reception chose very well for my Mum, my partner, me and our dog! A lovely touch: the doggy welcome bits n bobs in our room! Breakfast was delicious and it's so nice to drink FRESH orange juice. Dinner is also very good and, from what I gather, meat/poultry food produce is free range/higher welfare which is so important. The staff are all friendly BUT unfortunately, without going into the nitty gritty, bar/restaurant service spoilt our overall view which was a pity! Collapse
Lovely Lunch in Wonderful Location

We dined here for lunch last week on a Groupon Deal. There was no corner cutting because of the deal. The staff were very friendly and professional. The dining room is lovely, modern, not stuffy as they can be sometimes in these older hotels, with wonderful views of Windermere across the fields. The atmosphere was pleasant for a quiet lunch time. We both had the prawn and calamari salad for starters which was great and I would have as a main too if available. I had the steak and Guiness pie and hubby had the pork belly. Both were fantastic quality and very tasty. we also had prosecco with the deal and paid a little extra for desserts.... sticky toffee pudding and eton mess...both great too... i would def have the sticky toffee next time though. Good luck to Duncan, front of house, in doing his 10 marathons in 10 days challenge for Bratahy Trust too. justgiving page duncan-evans1 Collapse

Another break at this lovely hotel. We checked in to our usual room, a habit from the days when the wi fi was sporadic anywhere but the lounge and I needed to be able to check my emails regularly, now, though, the wi fi is consistent throughout the hotel so I could roam further afield room wise, perhaps next time. The food, as always, was delicious the only problem being that the fish is so good I turn into a pescetarian while I'm here and I miss out on all that lovely meat. The real goldmine in this hotel is the staff, from the part-timers in the restaurant to the GM they are friendly, smiley, chatty and helpful to the nth degree. Nothing is too much trouble here and they make your stay a real treat from the moment you walk through the door. Special thanks to Duncan and Julian and their team. One thing we have noticed over the years we have stayed is the gradual reduction in the age of the clientele. The first time we stayed children under 8 weren't allowed and the average age of the diners must have been 75+, now however, lots of young people, some well behaved children and a much livelier vibe. So if you stayed here and found it a bit quiet, give it another go - the basics are even better, great food, service and the views couldn't be better, there's just a wider group enjoying them all!

Easy to find and park. Quite dark inside (though could have been due to the clouds and rain outside) and a few tables messy with previous cups/saucers/plates/serviettes... Long time waiting- served with drinks and then still waiting again for the food. Drinks were good but the amount of coffee was only just enough. Food was again good but there was not much there! Scones were delicious but the other cakes were barely delectable- with little taste. Yet, I'm glad we went because I had a coupon which made the price 2 persons for 1. It would have been pricey otherwise. Collapse

After a gruelling 7.5 hour journey due to overunning roadworks on the M6, we arrived at this lovely hotel. We were shown to our room by the Receptionist. My husband immediately drew my attention to the view from our window, Lake Windermere and the lovely hotel grounds. We also had a little Juliette balcony at the side of the room overlooking the car park. We went straight down to have the cream tea we had booked. The scones were still warm and the tea (leaves) was really good. The toiletries in the room are to die for! A bath sachet left every day and the hair/body shampoo, hand wash and hand cream smell divine. So much so, when I discovered that the hotel sold them I asked to buy some but sadly they had none left����. I had discovered that there was a shop in town that sold the toiletries so I dragged my husband down there. It's now become my favourite brand. Breakfast was excellent. Very filling. Didn't eat lunch or dinner as we were out sightseeing every day The staff are lovely, so friendly. The barman was especially nice. I had not informed the hotel that my husband was lactose intolerant so when we had another cream tea,I was surprised when they served us with Soya milk and non dairy cream as well as normal milk and clotted cream then the following morning at breakfast, a jug of soya milk was brought out with our tea. The cleaning staff must have seen my carton of soya milk by the kettle in our room and reported back. Very impressed! Bar prices a little expensive and it would be nice to hear a little background music in the bar in the evening. That said, there was hardly anyone in the bar in the evenings. (I needed a stiff drink having had frightening encounters with the Kirkstone, Wrynose and Hardknott passes!!lol). If you are wanting to stay in the Lake District, then I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. Collapse
