Why We Love This Hotel

  • The hotel is in the village of Grasmere and is named after its most famous former resident, poet William Wordsworth
  • Wordsworth fans can visit three of his former homes: Dove Cottage and Allan Bank in Grasmere, and Rydal Mount, which is less than 10 minutes' drive away
  • 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, and at Allan Bank from 1808 to 1810. You can tour both houses, and visit the Wordsworth Museum, which displays his letters, journals and poems.

The hotel, which holds four AA Silver Stars, was praised by Britain's Finest as "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 2019. 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 in good weather.

Guests can use the W Organic Spa, which has an indoor pool, a Jacuzzi and a sauna. Spa treatments are also available (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.

Please note, maintenance work is being carried out on the roof and scaffolding will be in place at the front of the hotel until 10 March. The views from some Classic and Grasmere Village View Rooms might be affected. The hotel endeavours to keep disruption to a minimum.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wordsworth hotel and spa. The swimming pool facilities and sauna were lovely. Our cream tea on arrival was beautiful, the scones were warmn from the oven and very soft and fluffy. Our evening meal was also extremely tasty and a special treat.
