4.2

Family friendly facilities on the banks of Derwentwater.

The more family-oriented member of the Lake District Hotels Group, the Lodore is big on facilities if a little old-fashioned feel.

It's a imposing property set in 40 acres of landscaped grounds. Families will feel at home here with lots of little touches for little ones.

But the fun is not exclusively for kids. Parents can seek refuge with a sundowner at the nightly sunset cocktail session. Grab a chair on the terrace to watch the colours change in the sky over Derwentwater

Location

Located three miles southeast of Keswick on the B5289, it's a quiet, rural spot. But, rather handily, you're just across the road from the Lodore jetty to catch the Keswick Launch.

Bedrooms

The 69 bedrooms, split between lake and fell views, are modern and homely.

Family rooms easily accommodate two extra beds, while the two-room suites are worth the extra for the space of a lounge and a separate bedroom.
 

Eating and drinking

The Lake View Restaurant serves a hearty buffet breakfast, lunches and a more formal four-course dinner. But it also comes equipped with high chairs and a children’s menu.

The Lake View Lounge Bar is the place for morning coffee, afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks.
 

Leisure facilities

There’s a small pool and sauna inside, plus an outdoor pool and hot tub. Tennis courts and bike hire complete the picture.

The leisure club offers children's activities during school holidays; a children's' film club has screenings of kiddy-cinema favourites.

Service

A uniformed troop of attendants work the dining area but service feels a little aloof at times.

Who stays there

Families, international visitors, anyone looking for a base close to Keswick but with a more rural feel.
