Why we've chosen Lancrigg:

Lancrigg is a traditional country house with a friendly relaxed atmosphere and unobtrusive service, with twelve comfy bedrooms each with their only style and personality. It's the perfect place for a honeymoon, romantic getaway and to celebrate those special occasions. Unwind, relax and restore the energy of the body and soul.

Enjoy the peace and quiet as there is a total absence of traffic noise, the silence is only punctuated by the sound of the nearby waterfalls and birdsong.

There are fantastic walks right from the front door into the magical splendour that is the appeal of this part of the English Lake District. Or maybe you would prefer to wander through the 30 acres of gardens on our woodland walk. The quiet corners of the garden are a favourite for those who like to while away the hours with a good book.

It comes as no surprise that Lancrigg became a meeting place for the ‘Lake School of Poets’. Follow in the footsteps of none other than William and Dorothy Wordsworth who discovered Lancrigg shortly after arriving in Grasmere. Stunning woodland walks leading to spectacular views of the fells were all part of the grand design.

The organic restaurant which is part of the hotel is open all day for breakfast, coffees, lunch, teas and dinner for hotel guests and non residents. You'll find international vegetarian menus using fresh and organic wholefood ingredients with over 30 years experience in vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and other special diets. There is also an extensive list of organic wine, beers and unusual spirits.

We are the first hotel to be awarded ‘Health Creation’ status and offer special diets, meditational walks, cookery demonstrations and a range of in house therapies.

Reviewed by Richard Hammond:

"The setting (so close to Grasmere in the heart of the Lakes), the food (excellent variety) and the comfy, relaxed ambience are first class. This is my favourite hotel in the Lakes."
