A family-owned Lake District hotel group has carried out a £1million revamp of two of its venues.

Lake District Hotels have completed a bespoke refurbishment of the bedrooms at The Lodore Falls Hotel and Spa on the shores of Derwentwater, and the Borrowdale Hotel.

Company Director Dani Hope, said: "We’re absolutely delighted with the new rooms. They are modern, comfortable and reflective of the unique personalities of the two hotels.

"We worked closely with two interior design companies to ensure the characteristics of each hotel were woven into the redesigned rooms."

At the Lodore Falls Hotel and Spa, a hotel with commanding views on the shores of Derwentwater, 17 of the 87 bedrooms were redesigned with the support of Unwin Jones Partners

The project was led by Sarah Crawford, who said: "It is important for any design scheme to be inspired by and respond to its locality, and at Lodore Fall Hotel, we had inspiration in abundance!

“The sweeping views of Derwentwater and the fells beyond, the serenity of the Falls Spa and its stunning landscaped gardens helped inspire our final schemes.

"Each room is unique, which means we truly maximised potential, and every opportunity for space and light was explored. This allowed for a few surprises in various rooms; from snug window seats to a stunning mural."

At the Borrowdale Hotel, which lies in the Borrowdale Valley, it was the venue's cosiness and closeness to water that inspired designers from the Frank Whittle Partnership.

9 of the hotel’s 40 rooms were redesigned, with interior designer Kate Simmons leading the process.

She said: “There was a real uniqueness to this project, because it started with a single desk chair covered in a bold and colourful fabric and a question about how we would incorporate it into the design.

"The overarching theme for the rooms is modern and relaxed - every project we design is full of new ideas - we don’t like to use fabrics or furniture again if we can help it, to ensure we keep the designs fresh and modern.

"There are so many elements of the designs for the Borrowdale I am extremely pleased with, from the the bespoke headboards to the stunning Feather lounge chairs and the indulgent

fabrics to the new 3D wall panelling which will be illuminated with bespoke lighting."

Dani Hope said: "We put our heart and soul into everything we do and the ongoing investment in all of our venues is a part of our commitment to creating modern, comfortable, luxurious and inspirational settings from which guests can relax and enjoy the wonderful setting of the Lake District National Park."
