The Deal

TOP 20 - Sells out quickly!

Escape to Scafell Hotel, a Cumbrian country house surrounded by the towering fells of the Borrowdale Valley. Overnight stays are now £109, up to 56% off the usual price, and include:

  • Accommodation for two in a Standard Room, with full Cumbrian breakfast
  • A 3-course dinner for two (worth £45 per person)
  • It's £169 for 2-night stays (extra night B&B)

Why We Love It

  • The AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant uses local produce and offers a selection of local Cumbrian cheeses
  • The hotel holds VisitEngland Gold and Breakfast Awards, and is in a "peaceful location" (The AA) at the foot of the Great Gable and Scafell Massif mountains
  • The landscape surrounding the hotel is described as "simply spellbinding" by Lonely Planet
  • Derwentwater -- great for lake cruises and walks by the water's edge -- is a 10-minute drive away, and Ambleside Roman Fort is less than 50 minutes' drive away


Scafell Hotel is set in the tranquil valley of Borrowdale, among precipitous crags and secluded woodland. The hotel is less than 10 minutes' drive from Derwentwater, a popular hiking and fishing destination, and 15 minutes' drive from the market town of Keswick. Keswick Launch Company operates daily boat trips on Derwentwater from Keswick Landing Pier.

The Theatre By the Lake is less than 15 minutes' drive from the hotel and Castlerigg Stone Circle, thought to be 5000 years old, is 20 minutes' drive away. Lake District Wildlife Park is 30 minutes' drive away.

The AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant offers a fine-dining evening menu, Sunday lunches and hearty Cumbrian breakfasts made with locally sourced produce. There is also a Lounge Bar, which has a more casual setting, and The Riverside Bar, which serves snacks.

The 23 bedrooms feature designer bathrooms and antique furniture.

Bath dirty but cleaned on request. Shower curtain filthy, but changed after persisting. Staff bickering about changes to other guests.

The food and the welcoming staff who couldn't do enough to make the stay enjoyable! The food was outstanding.
Other Comments
The hotel could do with a lick of paint as it looked quite run down on approaching reception. The bedrooms could do with supplying shower caps and facecloths (which are standard in most hotels). Slippers and gowns would be a bonus. On settling the bill, we found we had been charged for a bottle of wine we hadn't ordered. I wasn't drinking wine and my husband had just a couple of glasses.
