MacDonald Swan Hotel

One of the oldest hotels in the Lake District, the MacDonald Swan Hotel was built in 1650 as a coaching inn. This hotel is perfect for walkers and cyclists, and it's cozy atmosphere will make you feel right at home. There's no 'best time' to visit, as the sunny vistas in summer and blazing log fires in winter make for both seasons to be memorable. Spend your day exploring the wonders of the Lake District National Park close by, then wind down with a delicious meal in the hotel restaurant.
