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!
