Living North are delighted to have teamed up with the Lake District’s most luxurious country house hotel and spa to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a two-night spa break for two worth over £800
Set in the secluded splendour of 400 acres of parkland on the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake, Armathwaite Hall Country House Hotel & Spa started life as one of England’s great stately homes.
With welcoming log fires, wood-panelled public rooms and a conservatory and terrace overlooking the lake, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. All the bedrooms at Armathwaite have views either towards Bassenthwaite, the gardens, the Deer Park or the Courtyard and some have their own private balcony or patio.
Connoisseurs of fine cuisine will find much to appreciate in the hotel’s Lake View Restaurant where Head Chef Kevin Dowling takes full advantage of a wealth of local seasonal produce and Cumbrian specialities to create a variety of gastronomic delights. His dishes draw inspiration from both traditional English fayre and classical French cuisine. Many years of thoughtful and knowledgeable selection of wines have given Armathwaite Hall a cellar of distinction sure to please the most discerning of palettes, thus providing the perfect complement to Dowling’s culinary creations. The more informal Courtyard and Brasserie is popular with guests looking for a relaxing place to enjoy a morning latte, an informal drink or a relaxed meal.
The spa at Armathwaite boasts an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and gym. There is a stunning outdoor hot tub overlooking the landscaped gardens, a tranquility room and 10 treatment rooms.
Your prize will include two nights of accommodation and full English breakfast with dinner in the Lake View Restaurant for two people each evening. One 60-minute treatment per person chosen from a specially selected menu of treatments can be booked on separate days or together (subject to availability). Full use of the fabulous spa facilities is also included and additional treatments can be added at extra cost.
To enter simply send your contact details on a postcard to Living North, Studio 2, St Nicholas Chare, Newcastle NE1 1RJ or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mark your entry Armathwaite Hall. All entries must be received by May 5th.
