Welcome to Leathes Cottage!

Leathes Cottage provides bed and breakfast in the stunning Borrowdale Valley near to the market town of Keswick in the Northern Lake District. We are just a quarter of a mile from Derwent Water, close to the pretty village of Grange in Borrowdale, and we are surrounded with views of Cat Bells, Shepherd’s Crag and Skiddaw. Our home is an ideal base for exploring the Northern & Southern Lakes as well as a stop off on the way to the Border Country and Scotland.

Leathes Cottage is a traditional Lakeland slate house set amongst the fells, fields and rivers of Borrowdale and David & Sue Ryan enjoy sharing their home with their guests.

Borrowdale is the fitting place for those who want a leisurely holiday as well as those who want the high adventure of the fells and crags. Take time to walk by the lake and river, enjoying the wildlife and spectacular views. Then make your way back on the Keswick launch which sails regularly around the lake, calling at various jetties, the closest to Leathes Cottage being only ten minutes walk away.

Make sure you include in your rambling one of the local tea shops where you can indulge your taste buds with delicious light meals and cakes.

If there is an occasional "light" Borrowdale shower, you may choose instead to sit in our comfortable sitting room, browse the many books in the bookcase, play the piano, watch TV or simply doze in front of the fire.

Take a little time to look at a few pictures taken around the house and you will see that we are not "trendy or twee", but have a traditional comfortable family home that we want to share with you.
