The Borrowdale Hotel, Borrowdale Valley

Built in 1866, this four star Lake District hotel is nestled at the foot of Shepherds Crag in the pretty Borrowdale valley at the tip of Derwentwater. The Borrowdale Hotel is steeped in history and has been lovingly updated to ensure tradition and modern comfort pervade. Original features include the 41 room bells in reception and oak panelling. The lounge bar has an elegantly contemporary look, marrying oak panels with modern furnishings to create a welcoming space. It really connects with the new look in the conservatory and the historic Victorian veranda. Open all day for lunch and afternoon teas, the gardens and fells beyond provide the perfect vista for relaxed informal eating.

Famous for exceptional silver service, formal dining is always a pleasure with menus brimming with locally sourced produce – some of which is smoked here at the hotel. The elegant dining room also features glass fronted doors which entice guests into the wine tasting cellar that boasts a comprehensive wine list.

Delicious Sunday Lunches

Introducting Kids Eat FREE! - 2 children under 12 can eat for free with 2 adults.

You can't beat a traditional Sunday lunch; a meal fit for a King, or Queen with delicious juicy roasts, fluffy Yorkshire puddings, seasonal vegetables, and rich gravy. At the Borrowdale Hotel, we’re famous for our traditional Sunday roast, where the meat is carved right from the silver carving trolley in the elegant restaurant.

Our carving trolley has been wheeling its way round the restaurant for the last 35 years and is still in use today, bringing the carvery, the chef and some old-fashioned theatre to the dining table.
