The Hotel overlooks one of the most beautiful yet relatively unknown lakes in the Lake District, Bassenthwaite Lake. The Hotel is located just 10 minutes drive from the town of Keswick. Keswick is one of the gems of the lakes on the shores of Lake Derwentwater. This is an ideal hotel for those wishing to experience the tranquility of the lakes whilst not being too far from the main tourist destinations.
Set beneath some of Englands highest fells and overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, the Best Western Castle Inn is the ideal location to explore the northern region of the Lake District. From the mysterious trails through Dodd Wood or the glorious views of the surrounding countryside to the magic of the nesting site of the beautiful Osprey or the majestic Skiddaw Mountain, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The rooms are comfortable and furnished in traditional decor. The restaurant offers a more formal set with an a la carte menu, whilst the hotel's bar serves light snacks in a relaxed setting. The Hotel serves a selection of locally brewed real ales supplied by renowned brewer Jennings who have brewed from their base in Cockermouth since 1882. This is a traditional, white-washed building with an English Inn feel. The lobby is small but quite modern in style very different to the rest of the properties in the locality. Our extensive leisure and conference facilities as well as easy motorway access make this the ideal venue for the business traveler and for those wishing to escape to the beauty of the Lake District. The hotel has a bronze rating with Cumbria Business Environment Network Scheme.
