Belmount Hall is a Grade II Listed Georgian house in the heart of the Lake District with stunning countryside and lake views. Formerly owned by Beatrix Potter, the house has been converted into a luxury Bed & Breakfast. Nestled into the stunning Lake District between Hawkshead and Ambleside, it’s the perfect place for your retreat. With all of its history, it’s impossible for you not to be enchanted by its charm. Many of our guests fall in love with Belmount and return year upon year. Belmount Hall is a place where you can escape everyday life and you feel worlds away from anywhere. We pride ourselves on offering a unique stay, from the Famous Frittata for breakfast, to no TVs in the rooms so you can truly disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with yourself. If you are looking for a place to relax and recharge your batteries. Belmount Hall is the perfect place for you. Surrounded by the countryside and wildlife that inspired Beatrix Potter, the location is perfect for exploring the Lake District. Each bedroom has been individually styled to impeccable standard. Breakfast is included and we offer all locally sourced produce.
Chris and Gillie have been in the hospitality business since 1991. They have hosted hundreds of weddings and other events, first at their Coffee House/Restaurant at Brantwood, Coniston, and since 2006 at Belmount Hall, a superb Grade II Listed Georgian house looking down the Hawkshead/Sawrey valley made famous by Beatrix Potter, who owned 'beautiful Belmount' and its two farms. We are passionate about food and offering something different including our home baked goods to our famous frittata. You will meet our loyal companions, our black labradors, Lord Jeffrey & Karla and Murphy, our friendly feline. We welcome dogs at Belmount hall for a small extra charge, all that we ask is that they are not allowed on the beds.
