Refurbished Brackenrigg Inn Reopens,

Newly renovated country pub with rooms, The Brackenrigg Inn, has opened its doors to Lake District locals, walkers and guests of Another Place, The Lake.

Another Place, The Lake is tapping into local Cumbrian spirit with its latest venture – a refreshing take on a traditional country pub.

A short stroll from the hotel and commanding views across Ullswater and the fells beyond, the reimagined Brackenrigg has a bar, seven ensuite bedrooms, a sun-trap terrace and six acres of meadows.

With local beers, spirits and soft drinks featuring heavily at the bar, the Lakeland flavours extend to the kitchen too with a menu championing Cumbrian producers.

Guests staying at The Brackenrigg can use everything on offer at Another Place – just a few minutes down the hill – including its indoor swimming pool and outdoor hot tub, outdoor swimming and lake sports coaches and equipment, Kids’ Zone, three restaurants and library.

Interior designer Gillian Panter of Kay Elliott Architects used the idea of Lakeland stories and literature to tie the spaces together.

Downstairs, brass details, low lighting, Chesterfield sofas, wall panelling, a moody colour palette and a characterful mix of locally sourced antique furniture with contemporary finishes evoke an eclectic library feel.

Alcoves and armchairs by original fireplaces have been converted into cosy corners for conversation or reading, while Wordsworth and Wainwright beckon from nooks and crannies turned secret bookcases.

A couple of the bedrooms even feature handcrafted wallpaper made with the pages of Lake District books.

Rates from:
Double £180 (1 room)
Lake-view double £210 (4 rooms)
Lake-view single £120 (1 room)
Lake view family suite £250 (1 room – sleeps 4)
