The Leathes Head Country House Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Borrowdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 21, 2007

This is a lovely hotel surrounded by beautiful views and walks. We stayed with our Children (10 and 12) who had their own separate room.

The Rooms were very quite basic but clean and both rooms had power showers and tellys (which was lucky as Doctor Who was on tv before dinner!)

The Dinner was superb - 5 courses and really delicious the kids enjoyed as much as we did - the breakfast was also amazing with a wide choice of local cooked produce.

To sum it up we were really well looked after and the food was wonderful. My daughter left a necklace in her room and the owners very kindly posted it back to us.

Stayed a couple of nights on a walking break and had a really relaxed weekend. The owners are extremley welcoming, and always on hand to help. Lovely big bathroom, comfy bed, and very comfy chairs in the reception rooms, just what we needed after wearing ourselves out in the hills.

We only dined at the hotel on the second evening as we arrived very late the first night, but the dinner was really excellent. Lovely fresh food, imaginative but not overly rich. Very good choice and standard of breakfast too.

All in all, highly recommended.

The hotel is set perfectly off the road from keswick to grange with lovely gardens to the front and sides. Roy and Janice were the perfect hosts and always available for a few words without being intrusive. Pay that little bit extra and have one of the two double aspect rooms at the front of the hotel, they are both huge and offer fantastic views of Cat Bells and Maiden Moor. Food is well above average with four excellent courses plus coffee/tea and breakfast outstanding, my partner particularly enjoyed the option of mixed fruits/berries with yoghurt.

The Leathes Head is a magnificent eleven bedroom Edwardian Country House Hotel, situated in the unspoilt Borrowdale Valley.
