Whether it’s your anniversary, birthday or you’re just looking for a relaxing trip away, there’s a secret gem in Keswick, in the Lake District, that’s not to be missed.
Tucked away in the serenity of the Borrowdale Valley, Borrowdale Gates Hotel provides the perfect backdrop for your romantic getaway. If you want a quiet, secluded break, you can relax by the log fires and enjoy the cuisine of our AA Rosette restaurant; we use fresh produce from local food suppliers, such as Direct Seafoods, Highgate Turkey, Peaks and Yew Tree Farm, so you will always get the best tasting, delicious meals available.
If you’d prefer to get out and about during your trip, there are many local activities to keep you busy. Just outside the gates of the hotel is the beautiful Lake District National Park, perfect for hiking, trekking, fell-walking, and cycling. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, climbing instructor company Women Rock can come and teach you about climbing, surrounded by beautiful scenery.
A little further afield is every literary fan’s dream – Skelgill Farm, the home of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle from the classic Beatrix Potter books. 2015 marks their 110 year anniversary so it’s a day out not to be missed. If film is more your thing, you can also see where the upcoming Star Wars movie was filmed just last year.
If you or your partner are car enthusiasts, from time to time we host classic car rallies in our large car park, which are fantastic to get involved in. From Bentleys to Aston Martins, we are happy to play host to such interesting car events.
After busy days of sightseeing, you can visit the new Lake Distillery in Basenthwaite for a relaxing drink, before getting an amazing night’s sleep in one of our standard, deluxe or superior rooms, or even our sought after Millican Dalton suite.
