Lake Country House & Spa
An elegant luxury country retreat, seamlessly run by experienced hosts. Welcoming atmosphere with outstanding food and service, and wonderful grounds. The ‘Kingfisher’ Spa brings an additional dimension to the Lake experience.
Consummate hoteliers and hosts Pierre and Jan Mifsud have been welcoming guests to the Lake for around a quarter of a century. Its long-standing reputation as a country retreat par excellence is based on its calm atmosphere, courteous service and supreme comfort. It has also moved – discreetly, in true Lake fashion – with the times. A few years ago it opened its superb spa, in a building that blends beautifully with its secluded surroundings.
Additional bedrooms have also been added, to the same exceptional standards as the existing accommodation, in a second new lodge building within the beautiful 50-acre grounds. A main ingredient in the hotel’s highly successful recipe is the accommodation. The well-proportioned rooms and bedrooms are richly furnished and plushly decorated with bold, modern touches. Many bedrooms are spacious, luxuriously appointed suites with open-plan sitting rooms. The hotel also enjoys a faithful following with lovers of fine dining who appreciate the flair and imagination of the cuisine, complemented by an outstanding wine list (one of the best in Wales).
The other outstanding feature that always draws guests is the setting (indeed, some have been known never to leave the Lake’s lovely grounds during their stay). The hotel takes its name from a three-acre lake set amongst lawns, thick woods, rhododendron-lined pathways and riverside walks.
There’s fine trout and salmon fishing on river and lake, a par-3 golf course and excellent birdwatching (over 100 species have been recorded in the grounds). Not forgetting, of course, the spa (restricted to adults and older children) with its large pool, hot tub, gymnasium and health and beauty treatments. The manager is Luke Marriott.
