Set beneath the misty majesty of Skiddaw's 'rugged forehead', just north of Keswick and tucked beyond view along a quiet country lane, passing through woodland and alongside the running waters of Burr Ghyll.

Arrive through a handmade gate or via the farm entrance; an abundance of parking is available from both approaches. Whichever entrance you take - the whitewashed and lordly features of Ormathwaite Hall, its stately lawn and its far-reaching views to Latrigg and the Borrowdale fells are a breathtaking sight to behold.

Grand Doric pillars stand sentry beneath a stately stone pediment as double doors open into an impressively warm and welcoming entrance hall.

Step inside, onto the original stone floor and take in your bright, light surroundings as the entrance hall opens up ahead...
