On arrival we couldn't help but be overwhelmed at the setting, absolutely beautiful. We booked a king size room at £140 for one nights bnb. The room was a good size and we were told the bathroom had just been refurbished. All seemed well until we came back from a walk by the lake. Feeling cold and the room being... More

We booked a junior suite through booking.com and what a good choice it was. We had room 5 which was just lovely. We had a beautiful view of Thirlmere and the place was so quiet we immediately felt relaxed. The hotel had it's quirky bits and bobs, namely sloping floors but I like that and what do you expect with... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and were delighted with the place. We were upgraded to a lake view room which was absolutely spotless and a view straight across the lawns to the lake. Modern bathroom and shower with all the little touches ( Shampoo, shower gel & cap etc. ) Good hairdryer, nice size flat screen tv.... More

We arrived to no coat hangars, no kettle and very limited kitchen facilities. Seal on oven broken, one shelf. How many ovens arrive with only one shelf?? Hotel owners who manage all the self catering cottages helpful and apologetic, " we don't check the cupboards each time", why not?? But lovely situation with wonderful views over Thirlmere and cosy and... More

We stayed in the Leatheswater Cottage (next to the hotel) in Aug 2014 and had a thoroughly enjoyable week. The location is excellent right next to a hotel, very close to the banks of Thirlmere Lake (great views) and just 1/4 mile from a good pub and 5m south of Keswick. Apart from the Wi-Fi (which was really weedy) this... More

We stayed for a week in the self-catering Leatheswater apartment, booked through Cottages4you. We were looking for somewhere with a nice view, with a variety of walks from the door and that had an away-from-it-all feel while being close to a good access road. We were not disappointed. In addition the bed was comfortable and the water hot at all... More

Incredible location, wonderful atmosphere. Although the owners have changed, the place is still as magic as it used to be. The new owner is very kind and helpful, the rooms are splendid and the food delicious. And the view is fantastic as the hotel is the only one along a lake that is quite inaccessible (so, not touristy) but very... More

Stayed here for one night recently, lovely surprise when we were showed into the room - just like the descriptions online, excellent quality, beautiful views. We had a family room, not knowing what to expect I was surprised to have a four poster bed, with two single beds also, at the front of the house, and an amazing view over... More
