Travellers' Choice
Ravenstone Lodge is a converted 19th Century stables & lodge with many original features including the stables themselves which are now the bar. Situated at the foot of Ullock Pike close to Skiddaw with views towards Bassenthwaite Lake and the Northern Fells we are perfectly positioned to explore the Northern Lake District. Ravenstone Lodge is a privately small hotel with just 9 bedrooms and because of this we can provide a uniquely personal service and when you stay with us you are not just a room number but are our guests in the true meaning of the word. Because of this many return time and time again, maybe requesting their favourite room or that a particular dish be put on the menu. Food is very important to us and our philosophy is very simple, top quality locally sourced ingredients cooked to order by our resident chef with sufficient choice to satisfy all tastes. We look forward to welcoming you to Ravenstone Lodge. Mike Cornish - Proprietor

We arrived at this place by chance on 24th November 2021 after we decided to leave Scotland a day early after spending time in the brilliant Caledonian Hotel in Fort William and then a short stay in Morar. We arrived in Keswick in the early evening looking for somewhere to stay. We checked out Booking.com and read the review for this place and it was a 9.1 So we rocked up to the hotel and was greeted by Peter (what a kind a friendly bloke is was). The welcome was warm and we immediately felt at home comfortable in our new surroundings. Peter also offered to take our bags up to our room. Nothing was too much for him. The food was excellent, from the homemade granola and the “made on site” ‘Hot’ blueberry muffins at breakfast and the huge choice of breakfasts was a big surprise too. The evening meals were Michelin standard made by the very talented and friendly chef Andy. Peter made sure we never carried our drinks from and to our dining table from the cosy conservatory style relaxing area where the guest relaxed before and after their evening meal. The bar was well stocked with every drink imaginable including there very own (made on site) and extremely tasty Gin, made by the owner Mike (who is also a very warm, engaging and welcoming gentleman). We are already planning our next trip here in May 2022 and hope to meet up with our new friends again. The whole staff and in particular Peter were brilliant. We ended up staying there two nights and for what we had in way of comfort, food and drinks plus the staffs company was absolutely well worth the cost. Which wasn’t that bad actually!

Never judge a book (or restaurant) by its cover! Although the decor was somewhat tired, the welcome from Brett and food from the chef was second to none. It felt like we'd walked into a friends home, Brett was immediately welcoming and somehow ran the whole operation without a single air of overwhelm. We were visiting for our honeymoon and Brett went above and beyond to wish us well and ensure our meal was just perfect. Thank you to him & the chef (sorry, I didn't get his name) for making our 1st meal as a married couple a beautiful one! Highly recommend you try this place for unpretentious, beautifully cooked and presented food...delicious!
