About Our Macdonald Hotel in Grasmere

This is the much-celebrated home of poet William Wordsworth. In fact, he actually mentioned our hotel in Grasmere in one of his poems. Here, in the very heart of the Lake District National Park, the natural surroundings are, according to him, 'the loveliest spot that man hathe ever found'.

Close to the craggy peaks of Scafell Pikes, Helvellyn, Skiddaw and the Langdale Pikes, Grasmere is a charming village where you can visit Wordworth's two homes, row on the lake or take a gentle walk along its shores. Events like the Rushbearing Festival and Grasmere Sports day bring ancient traditions to life.

Another tradition is the delicious spicy gingerbread that was so loved by Victorian travelers. It's still sold here and all over the world. When you've eaten your fill, drop in on Heaton Cooper Studios. Over decades they have created stunning watercolours and sculptures inspired by the Lakes. For lovers of the world of Beatrix Potter, there are attractions to capture the imagination too.
