Hotels in Keswick
‘Great hotel, great food,’ enthuse American readers in 2019, rating Gary and Donna MacRae’s ‘Lakeland gem’ as the ‘best hotel of our five-week European trip – and we stayed in some superb places’.
Leathes Head Hotel
‘In a beautiful setting, with valley and fell views all around’, this country house, built for the daughter of a Liverpool ship owner, retains the leisured ambiance of its Edwardian past.
Hugged by wooded grounds, the peaceful atmosphere, broad views and walks from the doorstep draw guests back to this comfortable Lakeland hotel.
From £65 per night
'Glorious fell views’, ‘excellent food’ and ‘capable, obliging staff’ are found at this family-friendly spot on the lower slopes of Skiddaw.
The Royal Oak
‘A really classic walkers’ delight’, the former 18th-century farmhouse and one-time miners’ tavern continues its century-old tradition of providing accommodation for visitors and hikers, and the Downey family’s inn now provides food too.
A mile outside Keswick, Craig and Clare Dalton’s welcoming, good-value Edwardian guest house is surrounded by splendid scenery.
