“This is the warmest, kindest, dearest hotel in the world.”
- The Sunday Telegraph


Howtown Hotel is a  creeper-clad stone and slate-roofed house which stands close the shore of Ullswater in the hamlet of Howtown, amidst magnificent and unspoilt Lake District mountains, with stunning views across the Lake.

The hotel, owned by the Baldry family has foundations which have been built upon relationships and families over the past 123 years. As previous visitors to the Hotel will appreciate, we are not driven by technology but by traditional hospitality and values combined with a passion for our surroundings.

A letter to confirm booking is still a pre-requisite, which is followed up by hand written confirmation from Mrs Baldry. This traditional way of booking by letter may seem odd in this age of technology but here at Howtown we offer no apologies, this is the way we do things; our responses are always considered, putting the visitor’s needs first and appreciating that every request is different.

We do, of course move with the times and high speed internet access is available in the hotel (but prefer that it is not used in public areas) the cottages and the tearoom, but on the whole we prefer to keep old fashioned values and a ‘face to face’ service believing that this, in combination with the level of comfort, hospitality and fabulous location we offer, is what makes many of our guests return time after time.

Dining at Howtown

Howtown Hotel is renowned for the quality of food served in the beautiful duck-egg blue dining room gleaming with silver cutlery and polished wooden tables, where Chef Colin Akrigg serves ‘pitch perfect flavours using locally sourced, top quality ingredients'.
