The Borrowdale Gates Hotel is situated in quite possibly the most stunning valley in all of England and all around are the Lakeland mountains that makes this corner of the world unforgettable to all that visit.

What makes a stay at Borrowdale Gates Hotel unique?

Set in 3 acres of its own wooded, dry-stone walled grounds, at the head of Derwentwater and slightly apart from the village, Borrowdale Gates Hotel offers spectacular views of ‘England's most beautiful square mile' from all points of the compass, and from every one of its new or newly refurbished rooms. This country-house hotel is both personal and luxurious, with food in its panoramic restaurant that is not only wonderful but wonderfully immune to fashion, and complemented by a wine-list that's as comprehensive as it is entertaining. The hotel's cosy bar looks out across the valley, as a wood fire burns cheerfully in the lounge
