Award Winning Hotel and Restaurant in Keswick, The Lake District

The Highfield Hotel & Restaurant is the only 3 star Silver Award Hotel in Keswick. Our setting is remarkable we’re in a quiet location with stunning views of the lake and mountains and yet in the heart of Keswick. We are only a few minutes walk from the town centre and the popular Theatre by the lake.

The property was built in 1885 using local Borrowdale slate in the grand Victorian style of the day. It has many delightful architectural features which make our rooms so quirky, such as its high turrets, balconies, big bay windows and the veranda which is perfect for pre-dinner drinks.

Relax and take in one of the finest views in England

We’re within a few minutes walk of Keswick town centre and the Theatre by the Lake. We’re also perfectly placed to be your base for mountain adventures in the Northern Lakes.

After a hard day on the fells you can sit in our beautifully kept garden and enjoy the panoramic view. Alternatively, choose between our two relaxing guest lounges. Being on a quiet road you can enjoy the peace, relax and take in one of the finest views in England.
