Stonecliffe is the creation of a young family who hails from Windermere and further afield. We have a passion for hospitality and a keen love of the Lake District National Park.
Stonecliffe takes its name from the rocky Lakeland slate ledge on which it was built circa 1850 by the celebrated Pattinson family. It began its history as a guesthouse around the time the railways brought a budding tourist industry to Lakeland.
We developed the property in 2017, naming its apartments after well-known birds from the area which we have enjoyed spotting on our local walks. They have been carefully designed by Judy Deakin of Form Interior and artfully curated by our in-house photography historian and arts consultant. All apartments feature emerging and established artistic talent from the region.
