  • Hi could you please tell me which is the nearest railway station to get to you? I am based in London but not sure how to proceed in terms of transport as I want to go by train and I am solo. I can see that you are quite well located and my interests are swim and walks. Thank you

    The nearest train station to Keswick is the Penrith (North Lakes) station. Once in Penrith, you will need to get the bus to Keswick which is the X5, then, once in Keswick, you'll need to get on another bus to The Borrowdale hotel, which is the 78.
