The Scafell Hotel is a wonderful Country House Hotel located in the very heart of Borrowdale, considered by many as England’s finest valley, surrounded by mighty fells, tranquil meadows and crystal clear waters.

A paradise for the walker and a perfect centre from which to visit other parts of the Lake District.

Fantastic stay in the week before Christmas – very friendly staff and superb food in the restaurant. Friendly staff and there is a really nice atmosphere around the place. Wonderful location in Borrowdale and dog friendly. Nice and quiet.

Beautiful Hotel located in the Borrowdale Valley. Staff are always pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Food is unbelievably good and they gave us some extra courses to try. Being the Lakes, they are of course dog friendly and always make a fuss of our four legged companion who loved to lay by the open fire.

My husband and I wanted a nice hotel in a beautiful location and this is exactly what we got. The staff are friendly and helpful and our room, the suite, is excellent. We had our meal with them for both evenings and couldn’t have asked for more. We are vegan and the chef went beyond expectations to accommodate us. We will definitely return.
