After hearing that the Leathes Head Hotel was offering a one day photographic course in March, my Wife and I leapt at the chance to return to this wonderful hotel. Our room was spotless, newly decorated with a spectacular view of Cumbrian countryside from both of the large sash windows. The restaurant lived up to expectations, consistently providing excellent food... More

The staff are friendly, helpful, but discreet and nothing is too much for them. The accommodation was spotless and the food was out of this world. On the Sunday night and... More

We've just returned from our 3rd stay at this wonderful hotel and as always it was a pleasure. Jamie and Jane are great hosts and the hotel itself is pretty much perfect.

We had a wonderful autumn stay at Leathes Head. Very comfortable bedroom with views across Borrowdale to Catbells and Derwentwater. Dinners were particularly good and very creative. Highly recommended.

I wish I was still at this lovely country house hotel. My idea of bliss is to sit in their conservatory watching the birds - it is so restful and fascinating. I had a really lovely room - very comfortable bed and pillows and the bathroom is amazing. Great walks leading off from the hotel's doorstop and if you are... More
