Harrison Pitt Architects was appointed by Another Place Ltd to draw up plans for a sensitive restoration, refurbishment and extension of the former Rampsbeck hotel on the shores of Ullswater.

Our client wanted the hotel to make the most of its unique location and topography, benefiting as it does from a quarter of a mile of lakeside frontage. Known as The Lake, the hotel will be the first to open as part of Another Place’s new unique collection of hotels that reflect their distinct and exceptional location.

Set in 18 acres of the Lake District National Park, the four-star property already had planning permission for a sizable extension containing additional rooms and a leisure facility to the south of the main building.

However, our solution was to remodel this area, and other parts of the hotel building, to increase the number of bedrooms from 19 to 40, including 10 family suites, an informal bar and dining space to complement the existing oak-panelled restaurant, a 20-metre indoor swimming pool, treatment rooms and a redesigned entrance and reception.

These plans will help Another Place achieve the distinct mix of active, social and relaxed hospitality for which it wants its hotels to be known. The project was designed by Harrison Pitt Architects, supported by interior design sketches (opposite) by Household.

“We want to widen the appeal of the hotel to both current and new visitors while staying true to the spirit of Ullswater. These plans are exciting yet sympathetic to the unique surroundings of the Lake District National Park. They represent a significant investment in improving the visitor experience for all our guests.”
