Seatoller House - Dog Friendly Guest House in Keswick, CumbriaSeatoller House is a beautiful guest house seven miles south of Keswick at the head of Borrowdale. It is over 300 years old and has been a guest house for over 100 years. It is the largest building in the hamlet of Seatoller.
The house prides itself on its friendly welcome, an informal atmosphere and good home cooked food. It is an excellent centre for exploring the Lake District and is popular with walkers, artists and those who want immediate access to the fells. We are also on the coast to coast route and have drying facilities for walking boots and clothing.
The dining room has two large traditional oak tables creating a friendly atmosphere where guests are served a set meal at 7pm (excluding Tuesdays). Breakfast is a relaxed affair at 8am, with a range of choices. There are 10 bedrooms all with private bathrooms, a large delightful garden surrounding the house and ample private car parking.
The comfortable Library and Sitting room offer the chance to relax with a pre-dinner drink available from the spirit cupboard or local beer. In the colder months, an open fire enhances the friendly atmosphere before and after dinner.
The Tea Bar provides guests with facilities to make hot drinks, fill a flask for the day, purchase snacks and soft drinks and best of all, indulge in a slice of homemade cake after a long day on the hills.
The heated boot room is available for drying any wet gear.
We do not have televisions or radios in the bedrooms or the public rooms — all the better to encourage conversation and the sharing of the highlights of the day.
There are 10 individually decorated bedrooms to accommodate singles, couples and families, all with private bathrooms, four of which are en-suite.
Guests at Seatoller enjoy the informal atmosphere and camaraderie of meals served around two large oak refectory tables. A set four-course menu is prepared fresh every day, using local produce where possible. The menu changes daily and reflects seasonality and a well chosen wine list complements the meal. Vegetarian or special diets are catered for with imagination.
About Seatoller House
The earliest parts of the building, the current library and sitting room, date from around the mid 1600's. Progressive extensions to the then farmhouse included a buttery and next to it what is now the tea bar. In the late 18th century the replacement of thatch with slate roofing allowed the creation of the taller first floor rooms seen today. The present dining room was built as a kitchen in about 1820 and the bedrooms at the south end of the house, together with the straight staircase, date from the mid 19th century. The first two bathrooms in the house were installed in 1912 but there was no mains electricity until the 1960's! The bathroom extension that now provides private facilities for each bedroom was added in 1988 and when in 2003 the company acquired a nearby cottage for the managers' use, the space over the dining room previously used as the managers' flat was remodelled to create the tenth guest bedroom.
