Traditional, atmospheric, family run, dog friendly pub with bed and breakfast rooms above. Run by Ben and Sharon Henderson, with the help of a small friendly team, in the beautiful setting of The Newlands Valley, just outside of Keswick, in the England’s Lake District (the newest of Unesco’s Worldheritage sites).

If you’re a walker, climber, canoeist, or someone who simply likes riding round The Lakes in the car, The Swinside Inn is the place for you. With plenty of parking, and immediate access to numerous easy, scenic, and low level walks, as well as more adventurous climbing routes; very close to Derwentwater, not far from Keswick, our customers visit us again and again. We like to get to know you personally –and we know that, whether you’re staying for a few days, or just grabbing a pint (or two), you’ve probably just had an exciting, exhausting day out, and want to relax, enjoy filling, home cooked grub, without having to remove your walking boots, or worry about what you’re going to do with the dog.

There’s an outside seating area, where you can enjoy the views of where you’ve just been, four seating/dining areas, 2 with open fires. We can accommodate, couples, singles, groups and clubs and families. Free WIFI.
