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 MailCheck out our list of 101 Things to do in the Lake District for further inspiration.

There was not enough staff serving at Dinner and Breakfast. Hence the service was slow. I think they had a staff shortage.

Stayed in room 67. Noise from other rooms and staircase was a bit annoying later in the evening and early morning risers heading off to work. Would be good to be separated from the corporates.
