The Wordsworth Hotel

Despite being family-run, the Wordsworth has the look and feel of a large-sized hotel.

A spacious resident's lounge, reception area and bar make for a really welcoming entrance; while the bedrooms, although small, are very well-appointed and spotlessly clean. Add to that the well-trained staff and its family-friendly feel, and the Wordsworth truly is a fine Lake District hotel.

Grasmere hotels

The village is overlooked by the small rocky hill of Helm Crag known locally as The Lion and the Lamb that is an interesting spot to view. There are a number of walks beginning from the centre of the village and include beautiful ascents up Helm Crag or to Fairfield. The village features excellent transport routes, such as the A591 that connects Grasmere northwards over Dunmail Raise to the Vale of Keswick and southwards to Ambleside.

Amongst the walks and hikes of Grasmere visitors also enjoy various other activities such as cycling, wildlife watching, picnics or just enjoy a trip to the lakes. There are a number of places in which you can stay within the village, as well as various campsites in the surrounding areas for that real back to nature feel.
