About the hotel

The Royal Oak is a traditional Lakeland hotel ideally situated 6 miles south of Keswick. Once an 18thC farmhouse, and former miners tavern, it is still the perfect base from which to explore the Lake District. We take great pride in maintaining our homely atmosphere and excellent value for money.

Although modernised with central heating, the thick walls, snug bar and cosy sitting room with open fire retain the hotels historic character. The main house offers 8 en suite rooms and 2 singles with private bathroom each with individual charm. Across the courtyard, our converted barn provides an additional 4 spacious riverside rooms each with en suite facilities and peaceful views. We serve English breakfasts and hearty home-cooked table d'hote dinners that sustain even the most energetic. Vegetarian meals, and packed lunches are also available. We offer a selection of local beers, the usual spirits & liqueurs and an affordably appealing choice of wines. In our attractive bar, there is always someone with whom to discuss the days’ events. It is a great compliment, that so many of our guests make friends with one another and return time and time again.

Great little hotel in the heart of The Lakes

This is a warm and welcoming hotel.

It is exactly what is wanted for a walking weekend. The room and ensuite were comforable and spacious. There is no choice of menu and dinner was fixed at 7.30 but that was not a problem. A good days walk can be had by that time. The food comes at good pub standard and after a days walking who wants anything fancy. Dogs are welcome in all public rooms except the dining room and there is a fire which if it is lit in winter would be greatly appreciated by said canines. I would definitely stay here again

Very friendly and accommodating but dog friendly!

Great for short break, clean rooms good size bathroom ample food although very little choice.

Not aware it was dog friendly therefore good if taking one but not if dont like yappy ones. Also think rooms for dogs should be separate.

Wifi only in tv room which was not ideal and no tv in room.

However enjoyable stay near river and very helpful staff
