Why We Love It

  • The hotel is in a secluded valley surrounded by fells
  • It's on the eastern border of the Lake District National Park and is five minutes' drive from the Yorkshire Dales National Park
  • The popular Lake District towns of Troutbeck, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside are within 45 minutes' drive


According to The AA Hotel Guide 2018, "this hotel occupies a wonderful secluded position amid trees and waterfalls" in the Cumbrian countryside. Visitors have been coming to the area since the 1800s, when they used to take in the fresh air and bathe in the well waters for their health. Today, this hotel is surrounded by peaceful countryside crossed by bridleways, and woodland that's home to red deer and a colony of red squirrels.

The hotel is 20 minutes' drive from Lowther Castle and Gardens. This ruined country house was designed by Robert Smirke, the architect of the British Museum and has gardens that The Daily Telegraph describes as "glorious". Alternatively, indulge in mint cake at Kendal, which is a 25-minute drive away, or head to Grasmere, which is around 50 minutes' drive away and is popular for its gingerbread and gift shops. The village is renowned for its connections with William Wordsworth; we recommend visiting the poet's forme home, Dove Cottage, and the Wordsworth Museum next door. National Trust property Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter, is an hour's drive.

The Birkbeck Restaurant serves à la carte and set-menu dining options, and carvery lunches are served every Wednesday and Sunday from 12:15-2pm. The Art Deco Riverside Lounge and Bar boasts views of the beck and the surrounding fells. You can also unwind in the Salterwath and Fell Bar lounges, or in the hotel foyer with its roaring log fire.

There is a games room with a full-size snooker table, a pool table, and table tennis and darts equipment. You can also use the small gym. Wi-Fi is free.

Only one small criticism and that was regarding evening meal. Food was a bit bland but on the plus side we had cycled to the hotel so although the food was bland there was plenty of it

We loved the location. The hotel was a little dated but we loved the quirkiness.

We had read the reviews and were a little apprehensive but were pleased with our choice. We found the staff helpful and pleasant. The hotel was clean, breakfast was plentiful and even though they had 2 coach parties in we didnt have to wait. We ate in the bar on the second night and it was lovely. We didn’t find it expensive as others had mentioned. We would happily stay there again. We had a lovely break, thank you Shap Wells Hotel.

Booked a double room, got a twin. Food was of a very poor standard, i.e frozen veg! Expensive too for the quality! Staff were over worked and over stretched. Manager had a very poor attitude.

The hotel is quite remote but we found this so relaxing being in the middle of nowhere. So peaceful & very chilling. Could not fault the hotel or staff. Very good value for money. Would recommend this offer to anyone wanting a break to simply just chill out.
