Festival Offer – “What the Dickens?”

Please note! This offer has expired! Click here to see our forthcoming events.

What is the now “legendary” Ulverston Dickensian Weekend takes place during the last weekend in November in our neighbouring market town of Ulverston, only a ten minute car Journey away from the hotel. The townsfolk do a tremendous job converting the whole town into a scene resembling one from of Charles` Dickens famous tales itself!

The Whitewater Hotel itself has history going back even further than the mid 1800s, but we don’t aim to compete with events taking place during this fabulous event. What we can do however is provide the perfect base for you to enjoy all the magical goings on, so we are offering a two night break designed to let you take a step back in time whilst coming back to all the creature comforts our riverside retreat has to offer.

Two nights bed and breakfast in a standard room and a “Dickensian” themed dinner on one of the nights you stay!! Full use of our leisure centre is included to allow time for a swim, sauna, steam or spa pool session.

Escape to the past with all this for only £189 per couple!!

Stay any two nights over the weekend of 23rd, 24th & 25th November 2012.

Call now on 01539 531133 to make your reservation.

The Whitewater Hotel is the ultimate Lake district retreat featuring the fantastic Cascades Leisure Club & Spa. Situated in the picturesque Lakeland Village, Backbarrow, just one mile south of the world famous Lake Windermere and nearby the Historic market town Ulverston. The hotel building itself is steeped in history; it was formally a Dolly Blue pigment factory making the world famous “Dolly Blue” and was also a Victorian cotton mill. Many artefacts have been preserved and the blue pigment is still evident throughout the building. The hotel today carries a 4 star rating with an award winning AA Rosette restaurant. The 38 luxury en-suite bedrooms nearly all enjoy stunning riverside views. This hotel really is the ideal place to escape from the fast pace of life for a few days and the perfect location to discover the sights and delights of the South Lakes and Cumbria.
