BEST WESTERN Shap Wells Hotel.

Rural relaxation near Penrith.

The BEST WESTERN Shap Wells Hotel is a stones throw from Penrith, nestled in a secluded valley high in the Cumbrian Fells and just off the coast-to-coast path. Our countryside setting ensures peace and quiet, and is the perfect place from which to begin a hike or simply enjoy a more relaxing walk in the Lake District, Peak District, Yorkshire Fells and Border County.

The hotel itself offers the highest standards, without taking itself too seriously. Our friendly staff create a warm, relaxing, family run environment, where nothing is too much trouble!

The mood for your stay is set even before you check-in, with a mile long drive along a private road breathtaking, rugged scenery in every direction, with sheep and cattle along the way! A pretty waterfall and trickling stream running by the front door will leave you with no doubts in your mind that this is a wonderful place in which to get away from it all!

Maintaining high brand standards and excellence in quality is second nature to the BEST WESTERN Shap Wells Hotel in Shap. We have proven that going that extra mile during our annual BEST WESTERN quality assurance assessments really does pay off. Our hard work and dedication to cleanliness and quality of both guest rooms and public areas has gained us the BEST WESTERN International Quality Award. A global recognition of excellence given to only a few selected hotels throughout the world, this award shows that we take pride in offering high levels of excellence in quality and brand standards our guests expect.
