Sharrow Bay is unique; the epitome of English country living in an unrivaled location surrounded by snow-topped mountains and fells, right on the shores of Ullswater, widely regarded as the most beautiful lake in the country. As the Lake District’s jewel in the crown, Sharrow Bay was the first ever country house hotel. When the hotel first opened its doors in 1949, the then-owners, Francis Coulson and Brian Sack, brought to life their vision of a hotel whose guests feel utterly at home…and so it has continued. A visit to Sharrow Bay will transport you to a bygone era of old-fashioned luxury, decadence, and complete tranquility, where your comfort and enjoyment is paramount. Guests simply cannot fail to be enthralled by the captivating charm of Sharrow Bay; it’s one of those hotels that must be visited at least once in a lifetime, and once you’ve experienced the Gentle Art of Sharrow, once is never enough.

The 12 acres of gardens at Sharrow Bay are nestled beneath Barton Fell with beautifully manicured lawns, bountiful flower beds, pretty water features, and ornamental ponds. Ancient garden doors and gates within the yew hedges lead to hidden gardens and secret benches, all with the most magnificent and dramatic vista of the lake. Sharrow Bay holds the culinary crown when it comes to serving award-winning cuisine in the most magnificent settings, with views to die for. The 2AA Rosette fine dining restaurant, open every day to non-residents and hotel guests, is regarded as one of the best restaurants in the Lake District, attracting diners from far and wide for special occasions, family celebrations and gourmet dining experiences.
