Waterton Park Hotel & Walton Hall

What could be more luxurious than a gracious Georgian mansion surrounded by its own lake? Set on the site of the first ever nature reserve, the Waterton Park Hotel and Walton Hall continues to recognise its environmental responsibility with its AA Rosette Bridgewalk Restaurant serving up delicious dishes, many using fresh ingredients sourced locally. The splendid spa and heated lake level pool, with fabulous views over Walton Hall and the lake, will allow you to relax and unwind.
