Why We Love This Hotel

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

Overview

According to The AA Hotel Guide 2018, Shap Wells 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, the hotel is surrounded by peaceful countryside crossed by bridleways, and woodland that's home to red deer and a colony of red squirrels.

Lowther Castle and Gardens is 20 minutes' drive away. 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 in 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 former 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 12pm-2.30pm. 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, which has a 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. Pets can stay in selected rooms for £10 per night (please enquire on booking).

Location and breakfast.
Other Comments
The corridor door outside our room number 101 was very noisy. Some form of buffer seals are suggested to be installed in order to reduce the banging when doors close.

Importantly it was dog friendly. It was ideally placed for visiting the Lake District.
Other Comments
Don’t expect luxury, but the room was comfortable and the staff were helpful, friendly and made us feel very welcome. Hotel is very isolated, in picturesque countryside and provides plenty of options for walking. Highly recommended if your dog travels with you.

This was a handy place to go walking to Shap Bothy

Unfortunately our room(38) had black mould right across the ceiling and the bathroom was not very big. Our friends were next door and had a very nice room

On the plus side, the 2 course evening meal in the restaurant was excellent.
Other Comments
The whole hotel was very jaded, room 17, the bedroom windows, curtains, and bathroom where coated in mould, there were layers of dust everywhere, the kettle didn't work, pretty shoddy overall. I know we got this on a special promotion via Travelzoo, but how are they going to attract customers back if this is an example of the service they provide.
