Gossel Ridding House
in the Lake District, United Kingdom

Gossel Ridding is one of the finest country houses in the Lake District with magnificent views of Lake Windermere and the mountains beyond. The house offers up to 14 guests the luxury of a first class hotel with the freedom and exclusivity of a private home.Whether you want to soar high above Wordsworth country in a hot air balloon, plunge in the lake or indulge in an in-house spa treatment, Gossel Ridding is the perfect retreat for a get together or celebration with family, work colleagues or friends.

At Gossel Ridding contemporary design meets Arts and Crafts elegance. Set in 8 acres of grounds and refurbished to the highest standard, this beautiful home offers unrivalled peace and privacy whilst being only minutes from the amenities of Bowness-on-Windermere.

The grand oak panelled hallway leads you to 3 generous reception rooms, the formal dining room and kitchen.

With its sweeping bay window, framing views of the lake and mountains, the Billiard Room is the largest reception room in the house. Its huge sofas will comfortably seat everyone around the magnificent slate and copper fireplace. Cool in the summer and cosy in the winter, oak panelling and polished floors grace this stunning room.

The Adams room is a more formal room with a Grand Piano tuned to concert standard that loves to be played. Our concierge can arrange for a pianist to come and play for you at dinner, a small party or simply for a romantic evening at home. This is an elegant room with an elegant view. Perfect for cocktails, for reading a good book or for stealing an afternoon snooze on the chaise longue.

The grand dining table seats 12 and a further four around the Indian daybed. This intricately carved oak panelled room with its beautiful copper fireplace makes every meal a celebration. We can arrange for a chef to cook some or all of your meals, for special occasions or for your entire stay.

Chill out is the Cinema room in front of a log fire. The enormous low level day bed is the perfect place to snooze, watch big screen TV or a movie from the extensive DVD library. Blackout blinds, slate, rustic wood and charcoal linen create a sensual mix in this comfortable room.

A huge kitchen, light and airy and fully equipped to the highest standard. For less formal eating it seats 14 around the original cooks' tables in front of the open log fire. The newly laid Lakeland slate floor has under-floor heating to warm your toes on a winter's morning.

Should you need to work The Study is a peaceful haven with wireless internet, printer, scanner and fax. Great for quiet reading or simply slowing down the pace. The study is generous enough to double as an extra twin room for camp beds or cots.
