Do take a look at our walking breaks special offer to have an experienced, qualified guide help enjoy the most of what the fells have to offer. For rock climbing enthusiasts, there is a good choice of climbing sites nearby.  Just mention when booking if you would like to book a session with a local Mountain Instructor, Mandy Glanvill of "Women Rock" to show you the ropes.

Wildlife

For keen bird watchers, more than 50 of our feathered friends have been spotted at or near the Borrowdale Gates Hotel garden, alongside red squirrels outside the window and deer roaming nearby.

Outdoor Pursuits

Many of our guests simply enjoy taking boat across the lake. Discounted tickets for the Keswick launch are available from reception.  Derwent Water is often considered the birthplace of the National Trust, as well as the area’s numerous links to Beatrix Potter and her famous tales.

For the more adventurous, a wide range of watersport activities can be arranged including Sailing, Rowing, Kayaking and other bush craft activities, such as ghyll scrambling.

Away from the water, guests come to Borrowdale to cycle, mountain bike, climb, do a spot of fishing at Watendlath Trout fishery or "Go Ape" in Whinlatter Forest. The adrenaline-fueled tree-top adventure runs alongside its selection of forest trails and a children’s play area.

The hotel is happy to help arrange bike hire, climbing courses, sailing lessons and a host of other activities on request.

Culture

Keswick is the home to Theatre By the Lake, Cumbria's only year-round professional producing theatre. Discount vouchers are available at reception.

Keswick hosts a number of museums; the revamped Keswick Museum, the Pencil Museum and the Mining Museum are popular attractions. The Alhambra Cinema, which celebrated its centenary in January 2014, and despite its traditional feel, shows all the new releases as well as live-streaming performances. “Wad" is the local name for a mineral also known as "Black Cawke" or “Plumbago". Today we call it graphite and high quality deposits are rare; so rare that there are only two locations in the world where it is in a volcanic series…in southern Spain and right here in the Borrowdale Valley.
