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 had a 2 day walking break with our dog. They are sooooo dog friendly she came everywhere with us even evening meal!! Breakfast is one of the best I've had. Just what you need to start the day walking!' Our room was lovely and quite spacious even having bunk beds. The view was brilliant apart from some scaffolding where... More

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.

Our second 2 nights stay in this Inn. This was a special offer, including a 3 course meal on the first night, not a "wowcher", sent by e-mail to me from the Swinside. I say this because 3 people mentioned "wowcher" whilst we were there! Last time we stayed in a room with a view which was gorgeous but the... More

We have made many, many trips to The Lakes over the years and stayed in practically every Inn you can think of. We have had our favorites but now think this is perhaps the best. We came to it late as in another life when I inquired about dog-friendliness they said they couldn't eat with us in the bar and... More
