Swinside Lodge Hotel, an Award Winning Hotel & Restaurant in the Lake District

Swinside Lodge Hotel is an exceptional North Lakes hotel within the Lake District, and ideally situated for exploring Derwentwater and the surrounding areas.

Swinside Lodge Country House is a peaceful, friendly hotel set in its own gardens situated in the beautiful Newlands Valley, making it one of the best Keswick Hotels. Swinside Lodge Hotel is surrounded by hills (known locally as fells) including Cat Bells, Causey Pike, Skiddaw and Blencathra. Direct access from Swinside Lodge can be made into the Newlands Valley and surrounding villages of Braithwaite, Grange, Borrowdale, Rossthwaite, Underscar, Bassenthwaite and Ireby.

Swinside Lodge Hotel not only offers quality guest accommodation but also award winning food in our AA 2 Rosette fine dining restaurant and was voted in the top 3 Fine Dining Restaurants in Cumbria. Complimented by our 75 Bin wine list – recently awarded the AA Notable Wine List Award – making this an excellent Keswick restaurant. We take great pride in the quality of the food we serve created for our award winning AA 2 Rosette Restaurant by Chef Clive Imber. We are recommended by Michelin as a very ‘Pleasant Hotel’. All in all this makes Swinside Lodge one of the few restaurants with rooms in The Lake District.
