The Borrowdale Hotel in the heart of the Lake District, just three miles south of Keswick, nestles at the foot of Shepherds Crag. Opened in 1866 as one of the first Coaching Inns, it soon gained a reputation for fine hospitality and attracted royal patronage.
It has recently undergone a major refurbishment which has remained sympathetic to its character and traditions. The veranda was built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, allowing guests to admire the views over the gardens to the Catbells mountain range
beyond. Beatrix Potter, who was born in the year that the hotel was first opened, made the mountain range famous in her tales of Miss Tiggiwinkle.
The hotel offers a comfortable dining room, lounges and meeting rooms, bedrooms with modern facilities and is happy to welcome well behaved dogs.
