Dog friendly hotel. Slightly off the beaten track, which makes it very attractive, when the Lake District is crowded with tourists. It does provide a whole package of Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, as it is not practical to travel to other restaurants. The food was superb, though not a great choice for the four course dinner. Vey good quality wine... More

Three of us stayed in this hotel as part of a golfing trip. Other reviews have been outstanding and we all agreed with most of what others have said. The hotel is in a fine locations, the rooms were very comfortable, and the food was good. As advertised, it is a fixed menu with no choice but we all enjoyed... More

we have walked past this lovely place countless times and commented we will go there one day! And last night we made it, and what a treat is was. The house is beautiful, very tastefully decorated and the food is a delight. Can't fault anything we had. We will going again without a doubt.

We stayed at Swinside Lodge for 3 nights. Had a very warm welcome from Kath & Mike. The room (beech) was comfortable, very clean. Food was excellent, compliments to the chef, although it is a set menu with no choice. The only criticism was that the towels in the room were not changed once. We have stayed at other hotels...

We stayed at Swinside Lodge two weeks ago and it completely lived up to our expectations. From the moment we stepped through the door we were made to feel at home. We stayed in Beech which was simply but beautifully furnished. The food as many other reviewers have stated was exceptional. We have never eaten so well ( thanks for... More

We arranged a night at the Lodge but with all the running about of the day we did not arrive till 9pm. But we still got our meal and without little fuss. The food was beautiful and had a wine list to easily cover any pallet along with a separate bar menu. Mike and Kath will ensure you have a... More

Our annual gathering was spent in this splendid hotel. What a welcome,what a setting! Fantastic food-served by this cheerful family. The rooms are very comfortable, and the luxury of thick white, decent sized towels is welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a fantastic time.

An immaculate guesthouse in a great location for north lakes, 5 or 10 mims walk to Derwent Water. Very good quality food prepared by hired chef - guests were asked in advance about any allergies or dislikes. Dinner was a set menu with four courses - we hadn't realised there would be no choice but the food wasn't too fussy:... More

We needed a reward for a stressful week and a birthday celebration so were looking for somewhere to relax and a base for a good walk. The reviews were encouraging and we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a beautiful location, just outside Keswick, with a mountain view and surrounded by pasturelands full of grazing sheep. So peaceful and... More

We don't know where to start. Every aspect of Swinside is fantastic! We were greeted with a very warm welcome when we arrived, almost as if we were old friends. The entire property is beautifully clean, the sitting rooms are clean, comfortable and welcoming. It's the ideal place to sit with a drink in hand and look at the stunning... More
