The Leathes Head Hotel


The Leathes Head is the first 2 AA Rosette Awarded Restaurant in the Borrowdale Valley.

We are passionate about our food and welcome non-residents as well as hotel guests to our magnificent contemporary Edwardian country house.

Head chef Noel Breaks treats guests to a menu of locally grown, reared and foraged produce, including Herdwick Lamb from Yew Tree Farm in Rosthwaite, milk and free range eggs from Scales Farm, and fresh produce from other Cumbrian producers; fresh meat from Lakeland Supplies in Kendal and cheese from The Kendal Cheese Company. Join us at The Leathes Head for a memorable experience to cherish for years to come.

The Graphite Bar is the ideal [place to relax and unwind with a drink. Recently renovated, the bar interior features elements crafted by local artisans. The bar top is made from Kirkstone Brathay slate from the local Honister mine, there is Cumbrian oak and an intricate basket light, woven with willow harvested near Cockermouth.
