For the 4th successive year the Lodore Falls Hotel has taken an award at the Keswick Tourism Association ‘Keswick in Bloom’ Competition.
Online PR News – 19-August-2009 – – Results were announced earlier this week (Tuesday) and the hotel scooped Best Garden in the large hotel category.
The hotel has 40 acres of grounds to manicure and uniquely has the Lodore Falls situated in the grounds - which makes it an attractive and very audible garden. It also has its own pack horse bridge and lakeside frontage - popular settings for photographs.
General Manager Stephen Johnson said “This is the 4th year in succession that the hotel has been mentioned in the Keswick in Bloom Awards and we are pleased that the hard work put into our gardens is appreciated. They are a natural draw for visitors who enjoy seeing the planting bloom through different seasons. The gardens have been carefully planned to be naturally sympathetic to the local environment - and occasionally there is a Herdwick sheep who wanders through - very in keeping but not popular with our gardeners! The picturesque grounds provide a stunning backdrop for guests enjoying the outdoor hot tub and we also get some great comments from photographers and wedding guests”.
This imposing hotel, part of the lake District Hotel Ltd group, was built in traditional Lakeland slate has had a commanding presence in the Borrowdale Valley for over 200 years.
Standing in 40 acres of grounds with lake frontage and the dramatic backdrop of the spectacular Lodore Falls and surrounding mountains, this hotel in the Lake District has one of the finest settings, with access to some of the most impressive walks in the area from the front door.
