Looking for a different hotel In the Lakes, I came across Leathes Head. (Previous choice with which we had been very happy for several years was pricing itself out of the range for value!).
It is well situated in Borrowdale for a range of walks and is within walking distance of Grange and the Keswick bus service.
The room (number 10 ) was extremely well presented and clean. Being on the ground floor it would be suitable for people with limited mobility. The menu was not extensive but offered several choices augmented with a range of special dishes each night. Continental breakfast was on the limited side from a variety perspective but perhaps that is
because I am always looking for something better than my normal day-to-day fare when I am on holiday! Staff were without exception pleasant.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and I hope we can return soon.
- 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
