CHARACTER FULL MANOR HOUSE

COMFORTABLE, RELAXED AND FREE OF FORMALITY

Ravenstone Manor is a relaxed family owned and operated hotel in the heart of England’s Lake District.  We offer a peaceful home-away-from-home escape in the midst of some of England’s most beautiful countryside.

We are not corporate, have no 24 hour desk or concierge but we are welcoming and friendly.  The perfect place to relax after a day in the fresh air.

COMFORTABLE STYLE

QUIET RELAXED SOPHISTICATION

We aim for a comfortable informal feel.  No table cloths and uniforms but simple service in an unfussy atmosphere.

  • Board games instead of televisions in the public rooms
  • Dog-friendly
  • Family-friendly

DOG FRIENDLY

PROBABLY THE MOST DOG FRIENDLY HOTEL IN THE LAKES

pets-pyjamas-travel-awardsDogs are allowed everywhere except the Kitchens and the sofas in the Sitting room.  We think it is unkind to lock your dog into a strange room so it can stay with you at all times.

  • In the room we provide a bed, towel, bowl and treats
  • A garden and easy short walks straight from the hotel
  • Temperature controlled wash station for dirty paw days

IDYLLIC LAKE DISTRICT LOCATION

OVERLOOKING BASSENTHWAITE LAKE, NEAR KESWICK

Ravenstone Manor was built as a dower house, a place of rest and relaxation for an elderley lady, so it was positioned for the best views looking west across the valley towards Bassenthwaite Lake, Sale Fell and Lords Seat.

  • Keswick, with a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, is 10 minutes away
  • Cockermouth, a thriving market town, is 20 minutes away
  • There are walks direct from the hotel including 5 Wainwrights if you are looking for a real challenge.
