Best Western Plus Lake District, Keswick, Castle Inn Hotel is a former coaching inn near the small village of Bassenthwaite in Cumbria.
It is in the north of the Lake District National Park -- designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017 -- and has views over Bassenthwaite Lake and Skiddaw mountain.
Keswick, a town "encircled by cloud-capped fells and nestled alongside the idyllic, island-studded lake of Derwentwater" (Lonely Planet), is less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. Wordsworth House and Garden, the childhood home of William Wordsworth in the market town of Cockermouth, is also less than 10 minutes' drive away.
"With vast stretches of open water, forests and lush green scenery, the Lake District is one of Britain's favourite tourist spots", says the Daily Mail. Check out our list of 101 Things to do in the Lake District for further inspiration.
