Great location, if you know Buttermere you'll know what a beautiful spot this is, a short walk from the water and overlooked by one of the most dramatic ridges in the Lake District, looking down to Haystacks and Fleetwith Pike. The corridors are a bit gloomy but the room was lovely, really relaxing, bright, clean, and well furnished. Good sized... More

I stayed in The Bridge for a weekend in June. I’ve been in the bar in the past but never the hotel. The Bridge is a friendly and very comfortable place to stay, I almost said “genteel” but that would do the place a disservice. They cater for walkers, ramblers, cyclists (and old cars) as well as gentlefolk. The residents’... More

This time we booked a self catering cottage with the friendly and efficient Ray at the Bridge. It was like being in a dream waking up and stepping out onto the balcony each morning surrounded by, in our opinion, the most beautiful place. The apartment was spacious, clean, comfortable with all the amenities we needed. It was so wonderful after... More

After over 14 hours hiking in the Lakes on Saturday, the Bridge Hotel was a very welcome retreat. Very comfortable bed and great view from the room (room 19). Beautiful setting, very friendly staff, nice bar area and superb breakfasts. Ideal spot to escape for a day or so as no TV, internet or mobile phone coverage. Bliss......will definitely be... More

Just spent a lovely week in Buttermere with friends. We stayed in the Red Pike apartment of the Bridge Hotel, it was very comfortable and had lovely views. We had breakfast and evening meals at the Bridge Hotel which were excellent, service was great, lovely atmosphere, would definitely recommend a stay here.

Having been to most places around the world, little did I realise how breath-taking a staycation would be. A friend recommended self-catering at the Bridge Hotel in Buttermere and we were just blown away.
