"As tranquil as its surrounding waters" -- Britain's Finest Hotels

Why We Love It

  • The hotel is named after poet William Wordsworth, Grasmere's most famous former resident
  • Lake Windermere is a 20-minute drive from the hotel
  • Guests can use the indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna
  • Grasmere's famous Gingerbread Shop is next door to the hotel


The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa, built in 1870, is in the centre of Grasmere, which Lonely Planet calls "one of the prettiest of the Lakeland hamlets". One of Grasmere's main draws is its links to poet William Wordsworth -- he lived in Dove Cottage between 1799 and 1808. You can take a guided tour of the house and gardens, and visit the Wordsworth Museum, which displays his original letters, journals and poems.

The hotel, which holds four AA Silver Stars, was praised in Britain's Finest's Top 10 Autumn Walks for being "the best hotel in the village of Grasmere". It is next to the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop -- the former cottage of Victorian cook Sarah Nelson, who created the recipe that is still used today.

Food is served in the Signature Restaurant, which holds an AA Rosette and is noted for its "ambitious contemporary cooking" by The AA Restaurant Guide 2018. There's an extensive wine list and an emphasis on local beers. Afternoon tea is available daily from 12-5pm in the conservatory or lounge, or on the terrace (weather permitting).

Guests can use the W Organic Spa, which has an indoor pool, a Jacuzzi and a sauna. Spa treatments can be booked (additional charges apply).

Lake Windermere is 20 minutes' drive away and Keswick is 25 minutes' drive away, while Coniston Water, where you can take a trip on a steam yacht gondola or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin, is 35 minutes away.
