The Borrowdale Gates Country House Hotel is surrounded by rugged charm on all sides and has panoramic views of the valley and surrounding fells of the English Lake District, with their ever-changing colours throughout the season.
Nestling peacefully in two acres of wooded gardens on the edge of the ancient hamlet of Grange (near Keswick), this charming Lakeland house is set amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Borrowdale Valley and close to the shores of Derwentwater, often referred to as the 'Queen of the English Lakes'. The hotel accommodation is ideally situated for walking, climbing, and touring. There are many places of literary and historical interest within leisurely motoring distance passing through areas of scenic beauty.
From the A66 at the roundabout coming into Keswick, take the first exit following signs to Borrowdale Rd (B5289) and drive 4 miles until you reach the double-humped back bridge at Grange. Turn right over the bridge and follow the road through the village. The hotel is located as you are leaving the village on the right hand side.
