Easedale Road, Grasmere, LA22 9QN
Lancrigg Outside

Set within 30 acres of its own gardens and idyllic woodland at the base of Helm Crag, Lancrigg is an outstanding country house hotel in the heart of the Lake District. On the edge of Grasmere village and situated on the routes to the summit of Helm Crag and Easedale Tarn, this hotel is popular with walkers who are looking to reward their efforts on the fells with comfortable and elegant accommodation.

In the summer, the garden terrace provides a delightful al fresco dining experience, whilst budding writers may find inspiration in the Poet’s Bar. The building has a long history of attracting artists and writers, and it’s thought that both William and Dorothy Wordsworth found inspiration for their works in the Lancrigg grounds. The hotel’s location makes it an excellent choice for exploring much of the Lake District, with Keswick and Windermere both within a 25-minute drive.

Restaurants & Bars

The restaurant at Lancrigg has cultivated a fine reputation thanks to its dedication to fresh local and seasonal produce. Many diners flock here to experience the best of Cumbrian food and hospitality, all served in a beautifully presented dining room that overlook’s the hotel’s grounds.

The menu changes on a daily or weekly basis depending on what is in season, and whilst the restaurant is no longer exclusively vegetarian (as it used to be) much of the menu is still dominated by plant based meals, with plenty of vegan options. The restaurant serves evening meals only and is closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but for hotel guests there are plenty of alternatives in and around Grasmere. Hotel guests can also enjoy a full cooked breakfast in the mornings.

The Poet’s Bar is a café bar that is open throughout the day and welcomes walkers. You can enjoy a light lunch here, such as sandwiches or a sharing board, as well as delicious homemade cakes, and the bar also stocks a fantastic choice of locally brewed real ale.
