The Wild Boar, Windermere, Lake District

The homely and relaxed atmosphere hits you the moment you enter and continues throughout the snuggly lounge and stylish Grill and Smokehouse Restaurant with roaring log fires, chunky wooden beams and the original rock that it was built on.

The Grill and Smokehouse has become a go-to place for one of the best dining experiences in the Lakes. The rustic setting and hearty dishes go hand in hand, and the smoked platters of fish and meat are too good to miss. Or tuck into the Alternative Afternoon Tea which includes a selection of sweet and savoury treats such as Wild Boar sliders, homemade scotch eggs, pork scratchings, homemade gingerbread and much more. The Alternative Afternoon Tea also comes with a trio of home brewed beers or a Pimm’s and lemonade as well as hot drinks.

34 individually designed rooms combine traditional style with contemporary touches, some with views over the fells, some with huge copper baths, some with wood burning stoves, and all with LCD TVs and luxurious beds.

The Brewhouse microbrewery at The Wild Boar in Windemere is popular for its selection of home brewed real ales, which you can either enjoy in the bar or take home with you.

Take a stroll through the 72 acres of private woodland situated behind the Inn and discover our hidden art trail, or take a seat in our Nature Hides and sneak a peek at the local wildlife beside the tarn. If you’re searching for something to keep you fit while you’re away, try our Woodland Gym, with stations dotted around the woodland to find.
