Keswick Country House Hotel Outside

Counting Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II and Lord and Lady Churchill amongst its former visitors and residents, the Keswick Country House Hotel certainly has a long history of providing quality accommodation to discerning guests. The hotel is located on the edge of Keswick’s town centre and was originally built in 1869 adjacent to the railway station to serve the area’s burgeoning tourist industry. The railway line was closed in the 1970s and the former station was renovated and incorporated into the hotel. Today, the former railway line is a popular walking route, and starting point for an ascent up Latrigg – a low level fell that is ideal for a first fell walk.

The hotel is a five-minute walk from Keswick’s town centre, the leisure centre, and Fitz Park. A walk to Derwent Water from the hotel will take approximately 15-minutes. A number of attractions are within a 20-minute drive of the hotel, including the Lakes Distillery, the Lake District Wildlife Park, and the Keswick Climbing Wall. Popular walking routes in the area include Skiddaw, Cat Bells, and Castle Crag.
