The Whitewater Team

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.
