Why We Love It

  • This 4-star hotel opened in 1866 and has an AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant, a wine cellar and several lounge areas
  • The property is in the Borrowdale valley in the Lake District National Park and has views of Derwentwater
  • It's less than 15 minutes' drive from the market town of Keswick and is around a 10-minute stroll from the water's edge


Located beneath Shepherds Crag in the Borrowdale valley, The Borrowdale Hotel was one of the first coaching inns in the area and has been welcoming guests since 1866. The hotel has views of Derwentwater -- "a silvery curve crisscrossed by puttering cruise boats" (Lonely Planet) -- and is a great base from which to explore the surrounding fells and trails.

It takes around 10 minutes to stroll down to the lake, or you can join the Allerdale Ramble -- a 54-mile path that runs along the southwestern side of the water -- which takes 20 minutes to reach on foot. This hike takes in the fells Castle Crag and Cat Bells, or you can head to Walla Crag, five minutes' drive from the hotel, to see "wonderful panoramas to the surrounding fells, a jewelled lake and sylvan splendour" (The AA).

Keswick has a picturesque market square and is less than 15 minutes' drive from the hotel. Keswick Launch Company operates daily boat trips on Derwentwater from Keswick Landing Pier, which is 10 minutes' drive away. The Lakes Distillery, which is open daily for tours and is overlooked by Skiddaw, takes 25 minutes to reach by car, while The Wordsworth House (the poet's childhood home - now a National Trust property) is 30 minutes away in Cockermouth.

The hotel retains original features such as oak panelling, a coal fire and the characterful room bells that hang in reception. There is an AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant with an impressive wine cellar that stocks wine from around the world, and a conservatory where you could take afternoon tea. The 40 individually decorated bedrooms all have tea- and coffee-making facilities, bathrobes and free Wi-Fi. Dogs can stay for an extra £10 per dog, per night, and are welcome in the bar and lounges.
