Quintessential British charm at an idyllic Lake District country house, including breakfast, three-course dinner and tea and scones on arrival

When it comes to country walks, slow-roasted lunches, the acceptable side of corduroy and local ales in old-world pubs, the Lake District is where it's at. Close to beautiful Keswick, The Borrowdale Hotel offers 40 comfortable rooms and award-winning dining in a property dating back to 1866, with many period features still intact and bucket-loads of warm, rural charm.

With the original room bells in reception and a walk-in wine cellar stocked with vintage bottles, this historic residence is a delightful base for exploring the surrounding fells, trickling streams and rolling hills. The Borrowdale Hotel's traditional restaurant serves superb British food, while the guestrooms remain classic and comfortable with a host of modern amenities to enhance your stay. The conservatory, bar and lounges have also had a recent stylish facelift. The Borrowdale Hotel has earned itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
