Getting Away From it All

Standing proudly in the heart of Grasmere village and cradled by two acres of glorious gardens, you’ll find the historic Wordsworth Hotel. Once the Earl of Cadogan’s shooting lodge, our grand country mansion offers the ideal retreat to soak up the picture-postcard views of the lakes and experience the sense of space, fresh mountain air and secluded beauty spots that inspired two centuries’ worth of Romantic poets and painters.

Perfectly positioned in the UNESCO World Heritage Lake District, it’s a place where you can reconnect with nature, ramble across the fells, watch the sunset or take an open water swim. And there are few better places to inspire literary or artistic creativity than the landscapes that once served as the muse for William Wordsworth and the Heaton Cooper brothers.
