The Leathes Head

Welcome...

to The Leathes Head, a luxury eleven bedroomed Edwardian Country House Hotel, situated in the unspoilt Borrowdale Valley and Cumbria Tourism Small Hotel of the Year 2016 Winners.

The hotel is set amongst three acres of private grounds and is surrounded by stunning scenery, meandering rivers and some of the most spectacular fells in North West England. With superb views across the valley and easy access to Keswick, this is the perfect place for a relaxing break. The entire Borrowdale Valley is ringed by glorious fells known and loved by seasoned walkers. Lake cruises, water sports, mountain biking trails and plenty of other Lake District activities are all within easy reach of the hotel.

We are proud holders of 2 AA Rosettes where our guests can enjoy dishes prepared by our head chef Noel Breaks using locally sourced ingredients; sit in the refurbished Graphite Bar to enjoy a drink or watch the wildlife from the comfort of the lounge windows before retiring to one of the individually furnished luxurious bedrooms, with views of the surrounding countryside and hotel gardens.

Relax in the Heart of Borrowdale

The Leathes Head is in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley. Situated just four miles South of Keswick, it is the perfect base for exploring the valley and the surrounding areas. You can access the mountains from the front door of the hotel or drive a short distance to start some magnificent walks. With superb views across the valley towards Derwent Water and Keswick, The Leathes Head really is in a prime location.
