Lake District Hotels – to Rest your well-worn feet

In a new book, 'Lake District- Mountain Landscape', mountain photographer Alastair Lee scales Lakeland's most spectacular peaks to capture the 'English Alps' in all seasons.

If you want to experience some of these surreal photos for yourself then strap on the walking boots and head up to the Lake District for some of the most spectacular, (and coldest!) views you’re ever likely to witness.

For many, Buttermere occupies the most beautiful and tranquil dale in the Lake Distict – and it sounds nice and fluffy too. But for the real mind-blowing scenes, tackle the likes of Dove Crag, Nab Scar and Fleetwith Pikes.

After which, you may just be about able for The Samling, Windermere- thesamlinghotel.co.uk

With no reception desk, no bar (‘just help yourself to drinks in the lounge, sir’) and no need to get dressed for breakfast (a full English wheeled into your room is the norm), The Samling – in the heart of the Lake District National Park – feels more like staying at some affluent friend's country abode.

There are 11 rooms, all sumptuously decorated and all bar one boast views of Lake Windermere. It has an award-winning restaurant – just what the doctor ordered after a long ramble.
