Paradise Found

The Haweswater Hotel 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...or just admire the view from our beautiful rooms and gardens.
Please be our guest...

“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.”


Mark Thexton, General Manager


“Being part of such a historic building in the inspirational and magnificent Lake District is a chef’s dream. A stunning local larder of world class ingredients, with a sense of potential and a true home from home feel in a picturesque location. Our focus is on delighting our diners with memories to cherish, a journey with splendid food, drink and hospitality in a friendly and graceful fashion”

Mark Greenaway, Executive 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.'
