Lake District Hotel in Grasmere - Bridge House Hotel - Conservation
Conservation in the Lake District is important to the Bridge House Hotel in Grasmere. We have raised funds for various conservation projects in Grasmere and elsewhere in the Lake District.
 

The Lake District National Park is a landscape of great contrasts, where majestic fells tumble into serene lakes and softly wooded valleys. But the ravages of nature, the Lakeland weather and visitors take their toll on this fragile environment. Caring for this landscape is very costly and so, in 2000, Bridge House Hotel joined the Lake District Tourism and Conservation Partnership to provide much-needed funding for conservation projects. Since then the Hotel and guests have raised over £50,000 for various projects - starting with Grasmere Lakeshore footpath restoration. Other schemes have included Japanese knotweed eradication, upland footpath work via "Fix the Fells" and Brackenfell restoration
 
The Bridge House Hotel in Grasmere is proud to be a fundraiser for such projects. We add an extra voluntary donation of £1 per person to each guest's account in order to raise these funds.

South Cumbria Rivers Trust - "is a registered charity (no. 1114682) whose purpose is to protect, conserve and rehabilitate the aquatic environments of South Cumbria..."

This includes our very own River Rothay which flows directly past Bridge House Hotel and into Grasmere Lake.

We know from local evidence that the River Rothay used to support many more trout and salmon than it does now. The health of the river has deteriorated down the years from neglect, carelessness and changes in rural practise. We would like to help reverse this trend and conserve the health of these waterways for future generations. Recent improvements have meant the return of kingfishers and even otters to the area, but much work needs to be done to continue this progress.

Bridge House Hotel is currently helping to fund the ‘Experience the River' programme which is designed to promote awareness of the aquatic ecosystems amongst local school children. The programme includes "Experience the River" days, when children have a chance to visit their local rivers and study the river life that they find there, learning to respect and look after this fragile aquatic environment.

This waterways project has been supported by Bridge House Hotel from 2009 onwards.

 

Langdale& Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team

Langdale & Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team is run entirely by volunteers and funded only by donations. This means they utterly rely on the generosity of the public in order to carry out their vital work. LAMRT undertake many rescues & missions in the area and not just on the mountain tops. People can get into difficulty in many different situations and this team of volunteers provide the other Emergency Services with the skills, local knowledge, and specialist support, that is required in the Lake District National Park.
Bridge House Hotel, in recent years, has taken up raising funds for the Mountain Rescue Team and we'll bring you more details as they emerge. Meantime visit the LAMRT website for more information.
