Brantwood Hotel

Brantwood Hotel Outside

If there is one piece of advice that seasonedcou travellers follow religiously, it’s that you should always look at where the locals eat and follow suit. The restaurant at the Brantwood Hotel is extremely popular with local residents, which should tell you everything you need to know about the food that is on offer here. However, there is much more to Brantwood than its restaurant. This former 18th century manor house offers comfortable, stylish accommodation and has recently undergone a significant refurbishment.

Brantwood is superbly located in the small village of Stainton, west of Penrith. It is just minutes from the A66, a major route across Cumbria, and from junction 40 of the M6. It is approximately a ten-minute drive to Ullswater, and around a mile from Rheged with Penrith just slightly further. It is therefore ideal for those looking for a convenient base for a Lake District break that involves exploring large parts of the area.

Restaurants & Bars

For residents, a hearty breakfast is served each morning. A buffet selection includes toast, cereals, fruit and yogurt, but it would be a great shame to miss out on the cooked breakfast, which is prepared to order. The restaurant is open twice a day for both residents and members of the public. Light lunches are available between noon and 12.45pm each day, with the exception of Sundays when a full traditional Sunday roast is available. In the evenings, the restaurant serves classic British cuisine using locally sourced produce, including jersey ice cream in a range of flavours produced on a farm just minutes from the hotel.

The bar is open throughout the day, and has a good selection of locally brewed ales, as well as other alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, and tea and coffee. All of which can either be enjoyed in the bar or in the hotel’s comfortable conservatory.

Celebrations at the Brantwood Hotel

The Brantwood is a popular choice for those seeking to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style. You must book in advance for the celebration, which includes a three-course meal, entertainment, and a private fireworks display on the stroke of midnight.
