Does anyone know of anywhere in the Lake district where we can stay in a cottage / lodge but have access to a hotel's facilities ? We need to be up that way for Xmas or New year for dp's work. Don't really fancy a hotel as don't want to worry about keeping kids quiet in the room, but would like some facilities such as nice meals, swimming pool etc.
Many of the cottages in Elterwater have had an arrangement with the Langdale Hotel which allowed for a cheap rate pass to the swimming pool/health club (I assume this is still the case). Also, Burnside Cottages in Bowness on Windermere are in the same grounds as the Burnside Hotel so I would imagine there would be an arrangement between them.
