THE LAKE District is one of Britain’s most beautiful regions and The Observer is offering one lucky reader the chance to win a stay at one of the Lake District’s best hotels.

The Waterhead Hotel in Ambleside sits on the northern shores of Lake Windermere right in the heart of the Lake District. It is a perfect base for exploring the wonderful natural beauty of this stunning corner of Britain, which attracts visitors from around the world.

The Observer has teamed-up with English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, who run The Waterhead and a number of other nearby hotels, to offer the chance to win a two night stay at The Waterhead. The prize will include breakfast on both mornings, and dinner on the first evening.

The 4 star boutique hotel is a stylish, sophisticated and contemporary luxury hotel.

At The Waterhead – named Cumbria Tourism Large Hotel of the Year Winner in 2016 – every detail is designed to offer a relaxed, intimate atmosphere, while its attentive, award-winning service will make you feel right at home.

The Waterhead boasts 41 modern and stylish bedrooms with three categories of rooms to choose from. House rooms offer everything you would expect from a boutique hotel. Classic rooms enjoy spectacular lake views over Windermere, while Luxury lake view rooms include extra special touches from luxury bath robes and boutique toiletries to complimentary beverages and snacks such as Nespresso Coffee pods and Bedrock Gins.

The Bar and Grill Restaurant presents diners with a varied menu that champions local ingredients and puts a modern day twist on popular, Cumbrian dishes. Dine in a beautifully lit restaurant with subdued modern interiors designed to give a relaxed, contemporary dining experience.

The Bar and Lounge offers diners an all­ day menu. Enjoy the lake views from the comfort of the bar or lounge or take your meal ‘al fresco’ out on the hotel’s lakeside garden and terrace. Afternoon tea is also served daily, which can also be enjoyed on the hotel lawn.

For walkers, cyclists and sailors the Lake District offers almost too much choice. For those less energetic there’s is no less choice, from the many boat trips offered from the famous Windermere Lake Cruises opposite on the lakes, to many historic and heritage sites, including those of writer Beatrix Potter’s house Hill Top alongside Lake Windermere, or the various William Wordsworth associated houses, and the poet’s grave at Grasmere.
