Rooms & Rates
"Worth the visit for the views alone" (The AA), Dale Head Hall Lakeside Hotel is set on the shores of Thirlmere in the peaceful North Lakes. The hotel, which occupies a country house dating from the 16th century, has views of Helvellyn -- the nation's favourite walking hotspot, according to ITV's "Britain's Favourite Walks".
Keswick is about 10 minutes' drive away. This historic market town with narrow cobbled streets is a good base from which to explore Skiddaw. Armboth Fell and Raven Crag, both good spots for a scenic walk, are around 15 minutes' drive from the hotel.
Ullswater, "great for crowd-free hiking around the village of Howtown and the picturesque valley of Martindale" (Lonely Planet), takes approximately 30 minutes to reach by car, and Buttermere -- "backed by a string of impressive peaks and emerald-green hills" (Lonely Planet) -- is a 40-minute drive away.
Dale Head Hall Lakeside Hotel has "comfortable and inviting public areas", says The AA, including a lounge, a bar and a restaurant. There's also an outdoor terrace overlooking the hotel's gardens, which are set within a red-squirrel nature reserve. Fishing permits for use on Thirlmere are available on request.
Spread between the Elizabethan and Victorian wings of the house, guestrooms overlook the fells and the hotel courtyard. All have free Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities and a TV, while some have period details such as oak beams. Superior Lake View Rooms have sitting areas, lake views and 4-poster beds. Self-catering cottages are also available.
