Bridge Hotel


"... Rural tranquility intentionally simple..."


Best Self-Catering Holidays prices guaranteed. Online booking is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year, even when we are shut in January. You can check live availability online, and book your rooms without paying commission.

Here at The Bridge Hotel we have six Self-Catering apartments located just twenty-five yards from the hotel. We have different types on offer: one bedroom and two bedroom apartments. We allow a dog in one of each type (Scaleforce and Red Pike apartments).

All of our apartments have been recently refurbished and offer an exceptionally high standard of accommodation. Each spacious kitchen has an abundance of modern appliances to keep you self-sufficient for the duration of your stay. However, all Self-Catering guests may enjoy the same services the Hotel provides, such as our restaurant, bar, breakfasts, afternoon teas and Wi-Fi.

Electric central heating, direct dial telephones and televisions with Freesat and DVD players are also provided. But don’t forget the breath-taking views that can be enjoyed from your own private balcony or patio!

The Self-Catering experience we offer is perfect for walking and family holidays due to our prime Lake District location. Our apartments give you the best opportunity to get out there, explore and enjoy all that Buttermere has to offer!
