Lake District Hotels
‘The loveliest spot that man hath ever found’. Praise indeed from England’s greatest Romantic poet, William Wordsworth. The place of beauty that so captivated him was the delightful village of Grasmere, now home to the aptly named Wordsworth Hotel. With its grand country house feel and delightful Lakeland views, the Wordsworth is among the most luxurious of all Lake District Hotels.
With 39 beautifully appointed guest bedrooms and suites, the Wordsworth Hotel combines old world charm with modern comfort and convenience. Complimentary wifi has the outside world at your fingertips and the pampered luxury of the on-site leisure spa is the last word in rest and relaxation. Nestled in its tranquil garden setting, the Wordsworth Hotel has easy access to unforgettable country walks with stunning views of the majesty and romance of the Lake District.
To be fair, the Wordsworth Hotel is one of many wonderful Lake District hotels. From the smallest Bed and Breakfast to the grandest establishment, caring for discerning visitors is what the Lake District does better than perhaps anywhere in the world. And it’s no wonder. The modern notion of travelling for leisure was practically invented in the Lake District.
First popularised in 1778, the Lake District quickly became the most desirable holiday destination in Britain and the perfect escape from the Industrial Revolution sweeping the nation. Wealthy tourists flocked to its soaring mountains and pristine lakes, inspired by the poems of Wordsworth and Coleridge that heaped praise on the sublime beauty of the landscape.
The traditional Grand Tour of Europe was replaced by the newly fashionable scenic splendour of England’s North West. Hotels of the highest international standard were soon dotted across the Lake District and a thriving new culture of luxury and hospitality flourished.
More than two centuries later splendid Lake District hotels such as the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere sustain and nurture that unique heritage. Here at the Wordsworth we truly do know how to look after people. The welcoming warmth, attention to detail, delicious food and commitment to quality are just some of the reasons why travellers return again and again to Lake District hotels. And of course all around is Mother Nature at her absolute finest.
The Lake District is truly magnificent. There’s nowhere quite like it. And thanks to the wonderful selection of luxurious Lake District hotels set beautifully among the historic villages and National Parks, visitors can enjoy the Lake District's natural splendour and stunning vistas without compromising comfort and convenience in any way. As the great poet himself might have said, Lake District hotels such as the Wordsworth really are among the loveliest a person will ever find.
