Lake District Hotel in Grasmere - Bridge House Hotel - Grasmere

Grasmere in the English Lake District is surrounded by mountains. Grasmere Lake lies just to the south of Grasmere village which is a Lake District haven for fell-walkers and all who love and appreciate being amongst magnificent mountain landscapes.

Alcock Tarn, Grasmere, England's Lake District

Grasmere is world famous for being the home, and burial place, of William Wordsworth, and there is a museum dedicated to the poet at Dove Cottage, which is owned and run by the Wordsworth Trust. If you would like more information about the history of Grasmere and the Lake District click here.

Dove Cottage Grasmere Lake District
On the opposite bank of the River Rothay from the Bridge House Hotel in Grasmere, is the Village Rectory which was the location of Wordsworth's last home in Grasmere village, before the poet moved to a grander house at Rydal Mount, about 2 miles away. 

Wordsworth's family grave is in St Oswald's Church-yard just over the bridge, beside Bridge House Hotel. The Church is 13th Century, but there has been a place of worship there since the early 7th Century. Just through the churchyard is the famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop.

Grasmere is the home of two well known annual events - Grasmere Rushbearing and Grasmere Sports & Lakeland Show. These are traditional occasions which have local connections dating back through the ages.

Most of the buildings in Grasmere are built in traditional Lake District stone and slate. The red coloured stone of Grasmere is unique to the village and was taken from the mountain Helm Crag in years gone by. Helm Crag is known by the Grasmere locals as "the Lion & the Lamb" because of the unique shape of the rock formations on its summit.
