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...

We are sorry to announce that, as instructed by HM Government, the Haweswater Hotel will temporarily close from Monday 23 March until at least 31 May.
Anyone checking in on Sunday 22 March will be able to do so, but will unfortunately be asked to check out on Monday 23 March.
All bookings from 23 March through 31 May will be cancelled and, where required, a refund will be made.
At this stage, we will not cancel bookings for the period 1 June to 30 June and will evaluate nearer the time.
We are accepting only fully refundable new bookings (i.e. bookings which you may cancel at any time) for the period 1 July onwards.
The situation is very fluid and we will of course continue to monitor things closely.
We would like to thank all our wonderful customers for the care you have shown us and your commitment to us over the past several years. We now consider so many of you to be friends. We wish you all the best during these challenging times and look forward to welcoming you again soon when things have improved.
Many thanks, The Haweswater Management Team and Staff
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.'

“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
