Best Lake District hotels 2023: Spa hotels, honeymoon hangouts and more

There’s a reason the Lake District is a Unesco World Heritage Site: it offers extraordinary landscapes, fantastic walks, peerless views… and some fantastic hotels from which to explore it all. Whether you’re planning to hike Scafell Pike, stroll around Lake Windermere, visit Wordsworth’s former home or simply cosy up in one of the many pubs, you’ll find somewhere to stay that suits your needs.

The Lake District is more accessible than you think, too, with trains from London Euston to Oxenholme taking under three hours, and the journey from Glasgow taking just over an hour and a half. So you can easily enjoy a long weekend in the Cumbrian beauty spot.

After a slew of new openings and refurbishments in recent years, there’s something for everyone when it comes to places to rest your head. From family-friendly to pet-friendly, luxury to budget, here are some of the best we’ve visited.
