Borrowdale Hotel | Lake District Hotel Keswick
Important:To reach us please take the beautiful scenic route from Portinscale to Grange and turn left over Grange bridge whilst the B5289 Borrowdale road is closed for repairs.
Nestled at the foot of Shepherd's Crag in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale, this Lake District hotel has a totally unique atmosphere enveloping the visitors from the moment they arrive. Warm and welcoming fires in the winter and cool drinks and strawberry teas on the lawns in the summer served with a smile.
Built in 1866 the Borrowdale Hotel has an interesting history with the original 41 room bells, which, although no longer working, are still proudly displayed outside the reception area. The restaurant has been refurbished to a very high standard and is very elegant and comfortable. It also now boasts a superb walk-in wine cellar stocked with some very interesting bottles.
During the day the lounge bar and conservatory are open for light lunches and afternoon teas and in the evening a splendid 4 course silver service dinner can be enjoyed in the restaurant with coffee and mints served in the lounges.
The 40 cosy bedrooms all have been completely refurbished in 2012/2013, and have a TV, telephone and hospitality tray and whether you are looking to book a romantic break, a family holiday with the children, an energetic break walking with your dog or just of couple of relaxing days, there are rooms to suit all.
If you are arriving or leaving on a Sunday make sure not to miss our famous Sunday lunch - it is well worth trying, but remember to book your table well in advance as it is particular popular with both locals and residents.
For those looking for dog friendly hotels, all our bedrooms apart from two are available for well-behaved dogs. Please contact reservations for information about our dog friendly accommodation.
The hotel is ideally situated in a peaceful rural setting, close to the shores of Derwentwater and only a few miles away from the bustling market town of Keswick.
