    The Shap Wells Hotel is situated in a secluded, wooded valley, high in the Shap Fells and surrounded by mountain streams, the ideal place from which to explore the Lakes. The hotel has retained many of its original features over the years and much time has been taken to retain the character of the building. The restaurant serves an extensive menu, in keeping with the hotel surroundings and seasons, and the Riverside Lounge & Bar provides the perfect spot to relax with a pre or post dinner drink! Keep yourself entertained in the games room which features a full-sized snooker table, pool table and table tennis, and there is a small aerobic gymnasium available too.
