Crow Park Hotel

The Heads, Keswick, CA12 5ER
Crow Park Hotel Outside

Undoubtedly offering some of the best views in Keswick, the Crow Park Hotel is a traditional Lakeland guest house that overlooks Hope Park and the adjoining Crow Park. The building was originally built using Lakeland slate and stone in 1820 as two private residences and later converted into one single hotel, reflecting Keswick’s increasing popularity as a tourist destination.

The hotel is superbly located, being within a five-minute walk of both Keswick’s town centre and the shore of Derwent Water. It is one of only a handful town centre hotels that offers guests free parking. Keswick is a brilliant base for fell walking and outdoor adventure enthusiasts with a number of outdoor activity companies operating in the area, and popular nearby walks that include Cat Bells and Skiddaw.
