We are great fans of the Bridge Hotel. We have been visiting /staying here for years and have always appreciated the ambience and location. The hotel food has always been enjoyable and the real ales are well kept (in the low beamed slate floored hotel walkers bar), great after a long days walking in this iconic part of the UK....

We've just had another great Christmas here at The Bridge Hotel -and as always it's been perfect! For anyone that loves walking (particularly if you like to take your 'four legged friend') there isn't a better place to stay. And the drying room is available to dry out walking gear if you're unlucky with the weather, so no need to...

My wife and I have been regular guests at The Bridge for over twenty years, in the main hotel and the apartments. We took one of the large self-catering apartments for Christmas Week, with old friends and our two Border Terriers. The apartment was beautifully-appointed, warm and each twin bedroom had its own en-suite facilities, allowing us all a good...

I have visited Borrowdale frequently and always wanted to stay at the Bridge Hotel. This winter I had such an opportunity. The area is outstanding and the beautiful winter weather made it complete. You need to walk, climb or canoe as there is little else to do unless you are a keen photographer, as the scenery is stunning. The hotel...

A very peaceful and relaxed historic hotel with helpful staff. Lakeside and hill walks abound on all sides. Interesting food and beers and good to get away from town hustle bustle and television for a few days.

We visited this weekend (4th &5th November) for two nights for a family wedding. We ate in the restaurant on both nights too. The staff throughout the venue were exceptionally accommodating, patient and genuinely cared.
