Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Most of our places to stay in North-West England fall mainly in the Lake District – click to see the list. We have two recommendations, Northcote and the Inn at Whitewell, shown below, in the neighbouring county of Lancashire, to the south.

 It's relatively quick these days to get from London to the North-West, especially by train. Some journey times are just under three hours. For the Lake District, you have to leave the train at Oxenholme. Many of the hotels we list will pick you up from there – it's only a half hour drive to Windermere.

 As elsewhere, our selection in North-West England offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from. Whether guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms or small hotels, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
