Our Inspector's View

Askham Hall sits on the edge of the Lake District surrounded by the majestic Cumbrian countryside. This Grade I listed building dates back to the 14th century and only the restaurant is a modern addition to the building. Public areas are warm and welcoming with the open fire adding to the charm. Bedrooms and their en suites cater well for the modern guest – many thoughtful extras are provided as standard. The award-winning food uses produce from the kitchen gardens as well as the farms within the estate. The friendly, hands-on team add to the wonderful guest experience.

About The area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
