Paradise Found

“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

John Cook, 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.'
