The Orangery at the Inn on the Lake, Ullswater was created using a very sympathetic yet contemporary approach, using architectural design that evokes the tradition of an orangery whilst making the most of the super impressive panoramic views. The hotel is situated on the shores of Lake Ullswater and is surrounded by stunning lake and fell views. The finished look is a modern space that evokes a sense of elegance and tranquillity, drawing in the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The 360 degree view is breath taking, accentuated by simple, yet equally dramatic furnishings to complement. It’s up to date with a rustic twist, with a stunning centrepiece overhead in the form of a dazzling Italian Crystal globe. The Orangery becomes even more enchanting in the evening, illuminated by a blazing fire and twinkling candles, perfect for a romantic evening with cocktails. It's a truly unique place.

Orangery - open 11am to 11pm
Food is served 12.00-5.00pm, afternoon tea is served from 2.30-5.00pm. Evening meals are served from 6.00-8.30pm (the Orangery must be closed by 10pm due to government regulations)
