Popped in for refreshments whilst out walking. The views from the outside seating are awesome. Great view of Catbells, really quite breathtaking. Well worth a visit. Very busy of an evening attracting many visitors.

Having stayed here regularly between 2002 and 2006, we returned this month. We were not disappointed!

We stayed for one night with our son in July and a the room was perfect for what we wanted with a bunk bed for him, the view out of the window was amazing. We had a great meal and enjoyed the beer (theakstons) and an evening playing pool. We had a full breakfast in the morning ready for our... More

We spent two nights at the Swinside in a family room with our 16 year old son and Jack Russell. It had been recommended as dog-friendly and is in a fantastic position at the head of the Newlands Valley. The walk up Cat Bells is only 10 mins away, and Derwent Water not much further, from where you can walk... More

An inn with great character and a wonderful setting. Scrumptious meals, friendly service and comfortable, clean roomy accommodation which all make for a wonderful stay. Being able to hire bikes from the inn is extremely convenient.

Very welcoming, clean and comfortable. Hidden gem if ever there was one. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food in the bar is delicious and plentiful, views are amazing and a cycle hire is just in it's infancy in the pub grounds. Very large car park, good choice of real ales, beers and wines.

Breakfast is very good; everything you need to set you up for a long walk. The view from the breakfast room is amazing. We would just like to say the staff are so friendly and welcoming especially Stephen nothing is too much trouble for him. We will definitely recommend to friends and family. Hope to be back soon.

We stayed in Hindscarth for 1 night and found the whole experience very enjoyable. The room was what we expected and more than adequate although the kitchen fan below was a distraction until the kitchen closed. The room had no view and the tv was, imo, a waste of time - but so what. For us, the free wifi was... More

I would recommend The Swinside. Staff are pleasant and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. Food good value for money. Keswick is nice walk and you can taxi back if necessary. Breakfast is good. We took our dog and felt very comfortable having him with us at all times. Many pubs and restaraunts in Keswick are also dog friendly.
