News from the Borrowdale Hotel
As we look ahead, there’s a variety of exciting events and activities to look forward to this autumn and winter. Our popular ‘Fish Fridays’ are back; the Tour of Britain will return to the Lake District on the 6th and 7th September, you can catch live streamed opera and ballet at the local cinema and the famous Theatre by the Lake autumn performances include ‘Beauty & The Beast’. There’s never been a better time to enjoy a break in the Lakes. Have a read below of what we have coming up at the Borrowdale Hotel…
We like to make sure our rooms are as up to date as possible, and this winter will see four first floor rooms receive a full make over in time for Christmas. We also like our bedrooms to have the best beds which are highly praised by our guests. We work with internationally acclaimed local bed company Sealy Beds to ensure our guests have a great night’s sleep.
