Scafell Hotel lies within Borrowdale Valley, at the foot of the Great Gable. The valley itself boasts dramatic, picturesque landscapes of rising hills and shimmering lakes that are wonderful to walk around. You could also explore the surrounding valley by boat, climb down into the old mines or up the Via Ferrata. There are so many long, idyllic walks to take within the Lake District National Park that you’ll feel a million miles away from it all. Once you've exhausted the trails, the quaint town of Keswick is only six miles away, so you can spend the day delving in and out of markets and browsing deals in antique shops.
