    “Firstly the location was absolutely phenomenal - being only a few minutes from nearly all of the main tourist spots of the Lakes.”

    The hotel itself is set right on the banks of the reservoir, overlooked by Helvellyn. For walkers, or those wanting to be close to everything, and out all day, this is a perfect spot. ...

    The hotel itself is set right on the banks of the reservoir, overlooked by Helvellyn. For walkers, or those wanting to be close to everything, and out all day, this is a perfect spot. At the time of writing, the only constructive criticism i have is the Hayloft is a little tired and does need a freshen up. The bathroom has a bit of black mold on the ceiling, tiles, and shower curtain. The floor and sofas could use a proper clean, and there are water marks under the windows. Furthermore wi-fi is very poor in the room itself. As a note to the owner, this can be easily rectified by using boosters or discs. The owners are friendly and very helpful, and we felt very welcome the entire time of our stay. Overall, i would recommend this location if you plan on long days out exploring the Lakes. However, if you're looking for a place to spend time relaxing at the hotel, I would consider looking elsewhere. For my wife and I that were out exploring from 9am to 8pm everyday, this was a good place - although maybe a little on the expensive side.

About the location


Bassenthwaite 7 miles, Ullswater 16.6 miles; Cockermouth 13 miles.

The popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the North of the Lake District and has plenty to offer the visitor at any time of year. The town boasts numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, excellent parks, the famous Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema, the Pencil Museum, a climbing wall, fishing and great mountain biking opportunities, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the stunning Borrowdale Valley is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby, between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw or the famous Catbells, there really is something for everyone. Visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Jennings Brewery and Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Bassenthwaite Lake, or take a fabulous boat trip around Derwentwater. With plenty of attractions for the kids, lovely parks and the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park this is a great Lakeland destination whatever the time of year.
