Abbey House Hotel online: information and bookings
Set in 14 acres of private woodlands and gardens, the hotel takes its name from the neighbouring ruins of one of the greatest Cistercian foundations in the country, Furness Abbey.
The ‘Abbey’ echoes the quiet grandeur of life in days gone by. Built in 1914 by Sir Edwin Lutyens, the original sandstone mansion was the home and guesthouse of Commander Craven, Chairman of Vickers Shipbuilding. Many dignitaries came to stay, including King George V The Prince of Wales and the Queen Mother whilst she was Duchess of York.
Upholding this tradition of hospitality, today’s management treats its guests like royalty, too. So much so that the captains of business and industry have made the hotel a regular venue for their conferences and seminars.

They say living well is the best revenge. If that’s the case then food, glorious food is central to the plot.
It’s “chacun a son goût” at the Abbey Restaurant. Whatever your tastes or dietary preferences, there’s always something to stimulate the palate. Including the finest of wines ‘for thine stomach’s sake’. From gastronomic banquets to set menu Sunday lunches, the world is your oyster.
Following an elegant sufficiency, you might like to visit to the Abbey Bar for a nightcap, or to admire one of the many original Harold Riley paintings.
