Wedding Anniversary: We went walking in the Lakes during our week off and decided to take an overnight bag and just stop off at a hotel on the way home. We saw the sign for the Leathes Hotel and stopped to see if there was a room free (mid week). There was as they had just re-opened on 8 March after decorating over the Winter (they were full all weekend). The Manager showed us two rooms to choose from - both excellent and freshly decorated. The 4 course evening dinner was amazing and as I am gluten free this was not a problem at all for the chef. The breakfast was excellent too. A lovely bar and comfortable lounge with a roaring fire, very relaxing indeed. To see to two woodpeckers outside the window while eating breakfast was lovely too. Beautiful, relaxed hotel, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend the hotel.

The entire Borrowdale valley is ringed by glorious fells known and loved by seasoned walkers. Lake cruises, water sports, mountain biking trails and plenty of other Lake District activities are all within easy reach of the hotel. We are proud holders of an AA Rosette for food, and our guests can enjoy dishes prepared using locally sourced ingredients; sit in the traditional bar to enjoy a drink or watch the wildlife from the comfort of the conservatory windows before retiring to one of the individually furnished bedrooms, with views of the surrounding countryside and hotel gardens. ... more less
