Located in the heart of Keswick, with dramatic fells and lakes on the doorstep, it is easy to see why the Skiddaw Hotel is a great place to stay during your Lake District walking break. Following a day walking on the famous Lake District fells, our guests choose to relax and unwind here; this warm and very hospitable hotel has a welcoming lounge bar and conservatory that overlooks the bustling main street. It’s a peaceful place from which to observe the bustle of the town after enjoying the tranquillity of walking in the Lake District.
Start each day with a delicious hot or cold Cumbrian Breakfast to set you up for the day. Grab your pre-ordered packed lunch and head out the door with Lake District Hotel’s very own walking guide to the Lake District, only £2.50 for residents and it’s packed full of stunning Lake District walks which start from the steps of the hotel.
After your day out why not enjoy afternoon tea in bright conservatory overlooking Keswick’s town centre or sip a pint of real ale in front of the fire in the cosy bar whilst planning your next walking holiday in the Lake District! Finish the day with a hearty meal in our restaurant, 31 The Square, where you can enjoy a personal service and a first class meal created from some of Lakeland’s finest ingredients. Why not try our cheese board – famed as one of the best in the county. Our local Thornby Moor Dairy supplies an excellent selection, including a soft Damson Cheese.
With Derwentwater and the start of many walking routes just a few minutes’ walk away, the Skiddaw Hotel is perfectly situated for a Lake District walking break. Picnic lunches available on request (extra charge incurred) – please order at reception the night before.

It’s not unusual for our guests to ask our receptionists and members of staff if they can recommend any good walks in the Lake District. After all when you come to stay with Lake District Hotels, 9 out of 10 of our guests are here to enjoy the beauty of the area and want to get outside and explore.
It was for that reason that we decided to produce our very own walking book especially for those who come to stay in our hotels. Walk the ‘Lakes with Lake District Hotels’ guide book is now available to our guests for free if you have booked onto one of our walking breaks. Find out more about our walking book....
