The Laura Ashley Hotel The Belsfield in Windermere is a superb example of Victorian Italiante architecture, and is amongst the grandest Victorian Buildings on Lake Windermere. Built in 1845 as a private residence for the Baroness Von Sternberg, the house was acquired by the steel magnate Henry Schnieder in 1869 and converted to a hotel in 1892 and extended to provide additional bedrooms shortly before the First World War.

Victorian Inspired Hotel in Lake District

Our Lake District 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, whilst staying true to the buildings heritage. The Victorians would have championed this design in silk wall hangings or hand painted murals.

This is most evident in the glamorous Drawing Room and Library where we have used summer palace powder blue wallpaper, one of Laura Ashley’s archive print styles depicting birds and flowers, creating a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere.

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.
