The SamlingModern British
The Samling is a delightful lodge and fine-dining restaurant oozing exclusivity. A favourite of Hollywood celebs (like Tom Cruise), it’s easy to see why this charming collection of restored farm cottages is thriving.
The restaurant and kitchen complex, built alongside the main house, has a glass-fronted dining room overlooking Lake Windermere. Despite the dream wedding vibe, The Samling is relaxed enough to work as a refreshing break.
The head chef is Robby Jenks who came to the Samling from the two Michelin star Gidleigh Park in February 2019. The wine list is rated as one of the best in the world. The restaurant lost its Michelin star after the departure of the outgoing head chef in 2017, but retains three AA Rosettes.
