Venture inside and you'll discover the elegance of Laura Ashley. Each room showcases the signature style of this much-loved fashion and interiors brand, famed for its muted palette and timeless prints, right down to the carefully-chosen soft furnishings.

And that's before finally retiring to one of the 62 glamorous bedrooms which include designer suites, 4-poster beds and roll-top baths. Bliss.

Amazing Hotel & Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Jill K, on 18 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2017

Attended my best friend's wedding here in March and can honestly say it's the best wedding I have been to. The food was amazing, not like a standard wedding meal, the presentation was beautiful. Service was really quick and staff great, especially the wedding team who helped the bride and bridesmaids all day with every small request we had. Rooms are gorgeous with everything being new & Laura Ashley decor. Couldn't get a better location, we stayed 2 nights and went into Bowness and Windermere for dinner & drinks on the second night. You can walk down the gardens and straight onto the pier so I would recommend going on a boat cruise. Booked a stay in July to come back with my partner for a mini break.

Love this venue

Daughter's wedding
Venue Service

By Margaret, on 19 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 27 May 2016

Attended my daughter's wedding at the Belsfield and wanted to pass on my thanks to the entire team for a fantastic day. The main restaurant was transformed for her wedding ceremony, with magnificent views you couldn't find anywhere else in the Lake District. The food was exceptional, please pass thanks to the chef & loved the Laura Ashley interior design. We are returning in September for a weekend away, really looking forward to it. Many thanks M x

Our special day..

Words cannot describe how happy I am to have chosen the Laura Ashley hotel for my wedding. Everything was perfect about the day, even the weather!! We had a lake cruise in the afternoon from the jetty at the bottom of the gardens, it was brilliant. Would 10000% recommend the Belsfield for weddings, the team are lovely and will go over and above to give you the best day. Thank you, Rebecca x

Our wedding day
Venue Service

By Sam & James, on 08 Apr 2016

We can't thank you enough for all that you have done for us over the past year of planning. The day was absolutely perfect! The best day ever and we could not have asked for more!! We have had so many compliments and positive feedback about how well organised it was, how good the staff were how smoothly it all ran.... The staff were all extremely attentive and met all of our needs (and more!). They were extremely good at noticing the empty glasses - my grandma still thinks she only had the one glass of wine!!! And the fact that we would not have had a clue that there had been two other weddings on the run up to ours was just unbelievable - you wouldn't have been able to tell!!! So THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'm struggling to write this as well as I'd hope because I am still on cloud 9! The whole process of booking our wedding with you has been such an easy decision. From the first day you showed is around, we knew The Belsfield was where we wanted to have our special day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, the beautiful reception rooms, the amazing view, and the gorgeous bedrooms - absolutely flawless. The team have been so helpful and accommodating for us, helping us make some tricky decisions, giving us advice, finding things out for us and generally being so organised and professional. You have been absolutely amazing for us, I cannot thank you enough.

Perfect Day

The Belsfield is the perfect wedding venue, amazing Laura Ashley decor, the restaurant just looked incredible for our wedding breakfast, everyone commented on how great the food was and wedding planners were all so accommodating. By far the BEST venue in the lake district - we cannot wait to return!! Kate xxx

Words cannot convey how fantastic our wedding day was. It flowed smoothly from the moment that we arrived until the minute that we left and our guests were amazed and awed by not only the venue but also each and every member of staff. You were professional but also genuinely friendly and made sure that everything surpassed our plans and expectations. We will have no reservations in recommending the Belsfield as a venue for weddings and any special occasion and we look forward to booking an anniversary stay with you later this year.

We cannot believe it's almost been a month since our magical day. We honestly thank your whole team at The Belsfield for helping to make our wedding day and our stay so wonderful. We are hoping to get our pictures from Andrew tomorrow so with his permission I am happy to share some of the professional photos. If not, many of our guests captured some wonderful shots that I will forward along. Once again thank you and I will be in touch soon. Cheers, Mr and Mrs Aspin :)

Georgina, I cannot thank you enough for all of your help during the planning of our wedding and the day itself. Yourself & Dean were invaluable. We had the most amazing day. Everything was perfect. It was completely stress free and ran exactly as we wanted, and this is down to yourselves and your team. The food was faultless, everyone commented that the standard was unbelievable compared to other wedding venues they had been to. The staff on the day couldn't have done any more for us, everyone was fantastic. The venue is beautiful but it really was yourself and the rest of the staff that made our wedding was it was. We cannot thank you all enough, we will be forever grateful and will treasure our day. We will be back! Nicola and Chris
