“The place of Solitude”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

Seatoller is a get away from it all hotel, hiding away in Borrowdale. The point of difference being, you swop and share the days walking stories over a communal breakfast and and dinner, hiding yourselves away from commercialisation.
You learn from the expert walkers that stay there with well worn advice of the crags ands crevises.
Easy reach of Haystacks and Honister pass, a stress less way to refresh yourselves with good food and the freshest of air.

We are never disappointed by our annual trip to Seatoller house. A warm welcome from Nigel and Trish and always wonderful hearty food which is especially needed after a long walk. The hotel has been tastefully updated but the charm still remains. It really is a special place and ideal for family occasions and groups of friends. We'll be back in 2014!

This is just what you need after a day sightseeing or walking in this beautiful part of the country. A comfortable room with great views followed by a scrumptious meal and friendly company from both hosts and fellow guests. Would definitely recommend this delightful establishment.

Having come back to stay at Seatoller House after a period of twenty years,we were pleased to find most things the same,like a time waft. David and Ann were the managers then,but we found Nigel and Trish very good hosts, the food was delicious. We have already booked to go again next year.

As a lover of the Lake District, having being visiting and staying for 50 years we can highly recommend Seatoller House. The house is managed on behalf of The Lake Hunts, a man hunt organisation with strong links to a climbing club as well. As interested parties the nurturing and indeed, maintenance of Seatoller House is closely monitored. It is an ideal centre from which to walk the fells, to paint, bird watch etc. the valley 'bus service terminates at Seatoller and can be used to move up and down the valley and to visit Keswick, about 9 miles away. An occasional 'bus also does a circuit to include Buttermere which is useful. Food and accommodation is excellent, made more so by the unusual but welcome absence of television. Communal eating encourages conversation and we have met and maintained many friendships over the years. The local knowledge of the managers is also worth noting. Would highly recommend.

My daughter and I recently came here on our second visit. We were welcomed back as old friends by Nigel and Trish and they were incredibly helpful in preparing food for my daughters gluten free diet. We love the relaxed calm atmosphere, the chance to mix with fellow walkers and hear their tales. The rooms are comfortable and the quiet location helps give a great nights sleep. The food is delicious and plentiful, encouraging us to walk further to earn it! Looking forward to returning again.

Stayed here on C2C. A long hard walk over from Ennerdale Bridge so Seatoller House was always a winner as the first B&B you come to after Honniston Slate Mine; however what we hadn't realised was just how good it would actually be.
Real house party atmosphere - thank you to everyone else staying there for welcoming us into your group. Good food and very well equipped for walkers.
We stayed in the Bakehouse - didn't smell of dog :)
