“This attractive Georgian house, more like a quiet home than a hotel, occupies a magical setting just a five-minute stroll from Derwentwater. In the capable hands of Mike and Kath Bilton, the interior is fresh and elegant, with pastel colours, cut flowers, piles of books, maps for walkers, seven country house-style bedrooms and good food in the deep red, candlelit dining room.”

“The Hotel stands alone, surrounded by open countryside, hills, valleys and woodlands, at the foot of the Cat Bells in one of the most unspoilt areas of the Lake District National Park. A short 5 minutes stroll takes you to the edge of Derwentwater where the Keswick launch provides a regular service around the lake. Walking is very popular as there are many well marked, spectacular routes in the immediate vicinity. The hotel is perfectly situated for those who enjoy sailing, bird watching etc.
The charming market town of Keswick is only 3 miles away and there is easy access to Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere and Buttermere etc.
Swinside Lodge Hotel is an elegant small country house hotel combining the highest standards of food, service and hospitality. The reception rooms are crisp and fresh offset by pastel blues and yellows. In the bold dining room deep reds combined with candlelight....formal, yet very relaxed. There are lots of books in the sitting rooms, maps for walkers, bowls of fruit and fresh flowers. The attention to detail is often commented on by visitors.
There are seven attractively decorated bedrooms, each offering a high degree of comfort, relaxation and good views. All rooms have a private bath and/or shower and are equipped with colour television, radio, hairdryer, hospitality tray and several other extras to make your stay more comfortable.”
