Welcome To The Rusland Pool Hotel


Roaring log fire

The Rusland Pool is a 17 bedroom family run Hotel and Eatery serving delicious meals from their extensive menu. The Rusland Pool caters for various diets and has a separate menu with over 44 meals for customers who have gluten free, lactose free, egg free diets, as well as options for sugar free, vegetarian and vegan diets.

Rachel and her family bought the hotel in 2009. Since then she has made a large number of alterations to the hotel over the years, including adding extra rooms, renewing beds, and triple glazing the bedroom windows, as well as creating an Electric Car Charging Point which is the only hotel in the South Lakes that allows usage for both residents and non-residents.

Rachel may not have grown up in the Lake District but she has got a close relationship with it. Her mother and father originated from Lancashire so the family spent many holidays in the South Lakes.

Rachel’s mother was an artist who painted the local area. Rachel would always accompany her mother on trips to Lake Windermere and the surrounding villages such as Cartmel and Ulverston. These trips with her mother cemented the South Lakes close to her heart.

Rachel has worked as head chef as well as a manager in a number of restaurants around the country as well as running military kitchens in the UK and abroad.

Both herself and her family love the Lake District and reflect this by building strong relationships with local businesses to bring their customers the best local produce to create a great Lake District experience.

Rachel and her team aim to give all their customers the opportunity to have a fantastic dining experience. Rachel explains that “I want every person to leave us feeling better than when they arrived.”
