We decided to make a short visit to the Lake District to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I searched Trip Advisor for an appealing hotel in a quiet and attractive location in or near Keswick. We wanted to celebrate with a special evening meal. I booked a double room including breakfast and dinner on Monday 26 September.
Swinside Lodge turned out to be everything we had hoped for – and more. Mike and Kath, the proprietors, were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The hotel, with only 7 rooms, is a delightful Georgian house in a quiet location only ten minutes walk from the lake. It is most beautifully furnished and decorated, especially the dining room and two lovely lounges on the ground floor. Our room was very pleasant and comfortable. Dinner was absolutely excellent, every course delicious and enticingly presented.
Overall – perfect. We’ll definitely return.
