Built in 1863 using the most handsome stone from the local Honister slate mine in Borrowdale, Greystones now offers high quality accommodation in the very heart of the Lake District. Comfortable rooms, guests’ sitting room, a friendly atmosphere and a superb breakfast menu (including vegetarian options) are all combined to create an excellent place to stay.
Whether you travel to the Lake District to walk the fells, absorb the atmosphere or simply want to relax, Keswick is the place to stay. Often described as the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of the Lake District, Keswick is situated between the two lakes of Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater and surrounded by the most majestic mountain scenery.
Just a short walk from our front door, Derwentwater lakeside with its boat landings and daily rotational ferry service as well as the ‘Theatre by the Lake’ are all easily reached. But if it’s a leisurely stroll or guided trek into the surrounding fells you fancy, leaving your car in our private car park, then many a great day can be started from right on our doorstep!
Certainly walking is a popular way to enjoy this beautiful landscape but the surrounding area can also be explored by car, bike or bus. With its many winding country roads or the thrill of England’s highest mountain passes, the Lake District has something for everyone.
And it’s not just outdoor pursuits of the foot-using kind that Cumbria has to offer. Within the immediate locality there’s sailing, canoeing, pony trekking, windsurfing, paragliding, golf, mountain biking, fishing, climbing and so much more. For a less strenuous day out why not visit one of the many attractions from wildlife parks to historic houses and gardens and with Keswick being so conveniently placed the South Lakes, the Scottish Borders and Hadrians Wall are all within an hours drive.
Space to Enjoy
To complement the comfortable, warm rooms there is also a newly extended breakfast room and lounge area with complimentary tea and coffee and a fridge for guests’ use.
Start the day with a delicious meal chosen from our comprehensive menu of traditional or continental breakfasts. Vegetarians, Wheat free, Coeliac, Vegan and special diets all catered for.
Just a 3 minute walk from the town centre or a few minutes more to the lake shore, Greystones is very convenient for all that Keswick has to offer without using the car or public transport.
