New places to stay this year will include a cool hostel at Hadrian’s Wall, a Titanic hotel in Belfast and a Coal Exchange in Cardiff
The people behind the Watergate Bay Hotel in Newquay, Cornwall, are expanding their empire. Their new hotel collection is called Another Place, and The Lake is the first to open. The 40-room hotel is in an 18th-century building in 18 acres of parkland on Ullswater. There is a restaurant serving regional food such as Herdwick lamb and Morecambe Bay shrimps, plus a more casual diner, library and spa. The grounds include a vegetable patch, herb garden and walnut grove, and oaks, beech and alder strung with hammocks and swinging seats. There is a wooden jetty by the lake for open-water swimming, standup paddleboarding and sailing.
