Lake District Family Hotels

Have you been searching for family-friendly hotels in the Lake District, or you’re considering looking for somewhere fabulous in the UK to bring the kids this summer? We’ve got everything you need here at The Swan Hotel & Spa, and we’re centred in one of the UK’s most popular destinations – the Lake District!

Nestled in the hamlet of Newby Bridge, and only a 20-minute drive from Windermere, we’re the ultimate luxury family hotel and your perfect home away from home. Oh, and we were named within The Telegraph’s 50 best family hotels in the UK!

No need to look anywhere else for your summer staycation, we’re home to a range of family hotel rooms, family suites and Nest Cottages. During your stay with us, you’ll also be able to use our leisure facilities, including our family pool. Plus, you’ll be saving on plane fare so it’s a win-win!

Family Hotel Rooms at The Swan Hotel

If you are looking for hotels with family suites, we’re able to cater for you. Our family hotel rooms come in several shapes and sizes, all individually designed and decorated with flair – they’ve got that extra special Swan touch to ensure you’re all able to nestle down in comfort and style.

You won’t be surprised to learn we have two suites designed around the wonderful world of Beatrix Potter, plus rooms with bunk beds, break-out spaces and king-size beds for the adults. At bedtime, hunker down after a delivery of milk and cookies for the little ones and wake up refreshed to enjoy our splendid breakfast.

We’re also home to two fabulous eateries, a café and a pizza van, so you’ll never be out of options for fantastic food. Get ready for your stay by taking a look at our menus or by booking your table.

Lake District Family Breaks

Not only do we cater for the family indoors, but we’ve got plenty of outdoor space for running wild. We’re also sitting right on the banks of the River Leven, where you can even take up an afternoon of Paddleboarding! Then chill out together in the summer sunshine on our terrace with some delicious food and drink. 

For those not-so-little ones, there’s access to game consoles in some of our bedrooms, a pool table and our Health Club. Adults can also access the Holte Spa Thermal Suite and Garden from an additional £45pp.

Family Hotels with swimming Pools

If you’re looking for luxury family hotels with swimming pools, then no need to look any further! Our heated, child-friendly indoor swimming pool is ideal for a paddle or challenging someone to a race! Guests of the hotel can enjoy complimentary access to the pool across their stay, in addition to the accompanying steam room, jacuzzi and sauna.
