The Away with the Kids review

Another Place is a new, evolving hotel collection from the team behind Cornwall’s Watergate Bay Hotel. Just like Watergate, Another Place has relaxation at its heart and a vision which is all about the balance of life. The focus is on being active, getting amongst the elements, eating and drinking well, spoiling yourself a little, chilling out, getting cosy and most of all having a good time.

Opening in August, Another Place, The Lake will reflect its distinct Lake District location and takes inspiration from the Cumbrian surroundings. On the shores of Ullswater, the second largest – and for many the most beautiful – lake in England, the hotel, previously known as Rampsbeck was purchased by the Another Place team in May 2015. The 18th century building is being transformed to 40-bedroom hotel with a number of family suites and dog-friendly rooms, as well as fresh, contemporary spaces with views over Ullswater and the fells beyond.

Set in 18 acres of secluded, unspoilt parkland, the vision is to connect guests with the great outdoors. Open-water swimming, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, cycling, walking, even skiing, allow you to explore the stunning location. In Swim Club, you’ll find a warm 20-metre indoor pool and treatment rooms, while gathering spaces are woven throughout the hotel and grounds. The Kids Zone will give children the chance to explore, try new sports and make new friends.

Good food is at its heart and they’re making the most of Cumbria’s outstanding produce, as well as their own vegetable patch and herb garden.
