Why We Love This Hotel

  • This 19th-century hotel is ideally located for exploring the rugged beauty of the Lake District & North Cumbrian coast
  • There are quaint market towns nearby & the city of Carlisle is a 20-minute drive
  • The restaurant serves an extensive menu


The Greenhill Hotel is a red stone mansion set in nine acres of land between the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District National Park, and it's surrounded by a vast network of fields.

The hotel is on the outskirts of the medieval market town of Wigton and 15 minutes' drive from Cockermouth, where you can visit the house in which Dorothy and William Wordsworth were born. You’ll also be five miles from the Lake District National Park, where there is plenty to explore. Bassenthwaite Lake's north shore is a 15-minute drive. Keswick, a charming market town with independent shops, art galleries and tea rooms, is a 25-minute drive away.

Bowness-on-Solway is 20 minutes' drive from the hotel and it marks one end of the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail, an 84 mile-long path spanning from coast to coast, with countless postcard-worthy sights in between. The city of Carlisle, with its cathedral and 900-year-old castle, is also 20 minutes by car.

Despite the lofty ceilings and large Georgian windows, the hotel is a cosy retreat, with leather sofas and original fireplaces -- a welcoming sight on cold evenings.

The restaurant has an extensive menu; we like the sound of the baked Camembert served with red onion marmalade, or the home-cooked beef stroganoff. The bar holds a happy hour from 5.30pm-6.30pm, Monday-Thursday. There are 12 bedrooms, all with free Wi-Fi, TVs and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
