This is a delightful small hotel and after several visits now feels like an old and loved friend. In fact we first stayed at Leathes Head on our honeymoon - but that was a long time ago. This has been a cold spring so far but the welcome from our Cumbrian bolt-hole was once again as warm as the open fire in the lounge. We had an excellent dinner too, and the extensive wine list is excellent. The refurbished rooms are delightful and extremely comfortable - and what views. Borrowdale is one of our favourite places and this hotel is a gem. If what you are looking for is a country house feel than it is to be strongly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Leathes Head is a magnificent eleven bedroom Edwardian Country House Hotel, situated in the unspoilt Borrowdale Valley. The hotel is set amongst three acres of private grounds and is surrounded by stunning scenery, meandering rivers and some of the most spectacular fells in North West England. With superb views across the valley and easy access to Keswick, this is the perfect place for a relaxing break. 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 two AA Rosettes 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. The hotel is proud to be nominated two years running for Hotel of the Year in the Cumbria Tourism awards. ... more less
