The Samling sits cradled in a bowl of Lakeland fellside, looking out over panoramic lake views, south along Windermere and west towards the Coniston Old Man mountain range. Here guests enjoy exceptional hospitality and comfort, with award winning fine dining – enhanced by one of the world’s best wine lists – and delivered with attentive but unobtrusive service. The Samling is the ideal base from which to explore the most spectacular part of England from the comfort of one of the finest hotels in the Lake District.
Follow the paths and bridges through our cascading ornamental water gardens, take in the views from our Georgian arbour or explore the wildflower meadows and winding woodland trails.
Here in the heart of the Lake District we find the balance of nature’s beauty with world class service, and look forward to welcoming you to experience both at The Samling.
