The family-owned and run Cumbrian hotel group, Lake District Hotels, has now opened a new property in the charming market town of Keswick.
Formerly known as The Queen’s Hotel, the property has been completely renovated, combining strong elements of Scandinavian design with a love of all things Cumbrian.
Inn on the Square, situated in the heart of the lake district, has 34 modern bedrooms, a chic lounge bar, and the Lake District’s first dedicated steakhouse – Brossen.
With relaxation top of the agenda, guests can choose from two different room types: Herdwick and Town View. The Herdwick rooms feature one wall dedicated to the Lake District’s famous breed of sheep bringing a flavour of the outside, in.
The Town View rooms face onto the pretty town square outside with views of the countryside in the background.
The useful central Keswick location provides guests with a wealth of activities on their doorstep, from a classic boat trip on Lake Derwentwater, to an exhilarating clamber across Via Ferrata on the side of Fleetwith Pike, a 20 minute drive from town.
“We wanted the design of Inn on the Square to be completely different to anywhere else in the area,” Daniella Hope, marketing director at Inn on the Square. “We were inspired by many trips to visit our family in Copenhagen as well as the icons which sit on our doorstep such as our favourite Herdy sheep. It is important that the hotel evokes a strong sense of place where our guests can unwind and soak up the atmosphere of the Lakes with a modern twist.”
