The Lake District has grown in popularity after the region secured World Heritage status. For many tourists visiting Lake Windermere is a must due to its splendid scenery and relaxing countryside.

Laura Ashley, The Belsfield in Windermere is amongst the grandest Victorian Buildings on Lake Windermere. Built-in 1845 as a private residence for Baroness Von Sternberg. The house was acquired by the steel magnate Henry Schnieder in 1869 and converted into a hotel in 1892. In 2014, Laura Ashley purchased the Belsfield Hotel.

Victorian Inspired Hotel in Lake District

Our Lake District boutique hotel has been refurbished throughout by Laura Ashley designers. The designers drew their inspiration for the project from the beautiful Victorian Italianate building and its perfect location by the side of Lake Windermere.

The juxtaposition of modern and classical elements celebrates the signature Laura Ashley style. Laura Ashley interior designer Kay Cullen has used the archive chinoiserie range of wallpapers within the hotel to enhance the beautiful features within the building while staying true to the heritage of the Belsfield Hotel. The Victorians would have championed this design in silk wall hangings or hand painted murals.

The summer palace powder blue wallpaper maintains the Victorian heritage of the Belsfield Hotel, most noticeably in the Drawing room and Library. The summer palace powder blue wallpaper is one of Laura Ashley archive print styles depicting birds and flowers, creating a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere similar to Lake District.

This space sets the scene for the rest of the hotel where cheerful colours and classical furnishings give a sense of refined elegance throughout the hotel.
