Tucked away down a peaceful cul-de-sac, the Wordsworth Hotel is as tranquil as its surrounding waters in the vast and beautiful Lake District. Escape the daily grind and book into one of 34 boutiquey rooms and suites. For an extra dose of luxury request the Tennyson and Scott Junior Suites, spacious and sumptuous rooms with exposed beams in the former and a private balcony in the latter. Or max your sense of place with a Mountain or Garden View room where, along with plush Villeroy and Boch bathrooms and Grasmere Gingerbread to nibble on, contemplate life exposed to immense vistas. Given the amount of walking, cycling or sightseeing you’ll be doing around this scenic spot, Wordsworth’s Blue Fish Spa helps to ease tired muscles and worn out feet at the end of the day, thanks to a lush selection of indulgent and holistic treatments. Head to the Signature Restaurant for plates of seasonal dishes, or the Dove Bar and Bistro are the go-to places for a spot of casual dining.
The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa also has a Spa and Venue:
The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa is part of the following Inspirations:
"It’s a half mile walk from the Wordsworth Hotel to Dove Cottage where William Wordsworth wrote some of his best works from 1799 onwards. The hotel that bears his name is a pleasant, sprawling slate construction from the nineteenth century when the Lake District became popular with walkers. This is definitely the best hotel in the village of Grasmere. It was built in 1854 as a shooting lodge owned by the Earl of Cadogan, and was redeveloped in 1874 as the Rothay Hotel. In the 1890s it used to advertise itself as “the nearest hotel to the resting place of William Wordsworth in Grasmere Churchyard” offering “the pedestrian the greatest possible choice of routes” . Pedestrians arriving at Dove Cottage should take the path uphill that leads to the Old Coffin Road over high ground in the direction of Rydal Mount with Rydal Water below. You’ll view some good autumn colours up here thanks to the campaigning of writer Beatrix Potter, who in the 1920s opposed a government initiative to cover the Lake District with high-yield conifers. At Rydal Mount you’ll find the house that Wordsworth moved to as his income – and his family – grew. From here you should cross the A591 to Cote How and walk back on the southern shore of Rydal Water and thence towards the Wordsworth Hotel and a well-deserved afternoon tea."
"Ah, the Lakes. You simply can’t go wrong if you book a little mini break (as hopelessly romantic love-seeker Bridget Jones might say) in the Lake District with your loved one. I suggest slinging a hamper a deux in the boot with your best pair of pyjamas and nosing the motor to the Wordsworth Hotel and Spa in Grasmere, a tranquil little haven boasting exposed beams and vistas to die for. Bag one of the Gingerbread rooms which have mountain and village views that will make it hard to leave. When you do manage to extricate yourself, meander off through the daffodils to visit Wordsworth’s beloved Dove Cottage – who said you had to wander lonely as a cloud round here?"
"Just because a hotel is boutique, it doesn’t mean you can’t check in with your dog. The Wordsworth prides itself on offering exquisite rooms (think exposed beams, private balconies, Villeroy and Bosch bathrooms and pretty tea trays) yet still being relaxed enough to welcome your pooch. There’s so much walking and sightseeing to be done just outside the hotel's front door, that we doubt you’ll be inside much but don’t forget to leave some time at the end of the day for you to enjoy this wonderful spot. The Blue Fish Spa eases aching joints while the Signature Restaurant has changing seasonal dishes that are worth the stay in themselves."
