The Haweswater is perched right on the lake at the heart of the Haweswater nature reserve - a stunning, 100 square mile haven for wildlife. The views over the lake, towards Kidsty Pike are simply breathtaking.
Relax, cycle, walk, run, explore...stop with us on Wainwright's 'Coast to Coast'...or just admire the view from our beautiful rooms and gardens. Please be our guest...
Direct bookings via this site get free desserts when you dine with us! 20% discount for a 4 day or longer booking.
We are aiming to open the hotel as soon as we are permitted to do so by the authorities
At this stage, it appears that we will be able to open on 4th July but if we can open sooner, we will!
We are very highly staffed at present and very unlikely to answer the phone, so please book online using the forms on this page
We have plenty of space here at the hotel and with 100 square miles of wilderness to explore, social distancing will not be too challenging...
Any additional guidelines will be followed and you can rest assured we will make sure stay with us as safe and as comfortable as we possibly can
We have been using the 'time off' productively and hope you notice the improvements once you come back to see us
We hope all of you have had a safe 'lockdown' and looking forward to the resumption of normal life
Many thanks, The Haweswater Management Team and Staff

“We really want the Haweswater to feel more like a home than a hotel. We have been busy upgrading the property and improving guest facilities. Our new rooms and suites are beautifully finished and really emphasise that fantastic view...while keeping everything that makes the place so charming and special."
Stephen O'Sullivan, Owner
“It's an absolute joy to be working in one of the most beautiful locations in England and with such an important historic building! We look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.”
John Burrows, Manager
“I am passionate about bringing you the best local ingredients in elegant, tasty dishes, served with the best views in England!”
Phil Clarke, Head Chef
We are delighted to have been recommended by the Daily Telegraph
'Right on glistening Haweswater Nature Reserve and cloaked in inspiring fells; the swoon-worthy location is so serene it’s perfectly isolated from humanity - apart from the odd red squirrel or two. Recent renovations and delicious food are putting this small hotel back on the map.'
