Lake District Hotel in Grasmere - Bridge House Hotel - Lake District

England's Lake District National Park is in Cumbria - England's most North Westerly county. The Lake District, often referred to as "the Lakes", or "Lakeland", is a breathtaking landscape of mountains, tarns, rivers, waterfalls and, of course, lakes! If you have never visited, and you enjoy magnificent countryside, a holiday in the Lake District is truly for you. The Lake District welcomes visitors throughout the year, as each season brings its own character and quality to this beautiful scenery.

England's Lake District has inspirational appeal for hikers who love to walk the mountains here - simply gaining height opens up the views dramatically and keeps you fit at the same time!

There are many visitor attractions in the Lake District for those feeling less energetic, and many places to pause, relax and simply watch the world go by.

Bridge House Hotel is in Grasmere village, which is right in the centre of England's Lake District. This makes it ideal for visitors who wish to see as much as they can of the Lake District National Park. It is great for walkers too - just "Park and Stride" - Helvellyn, the Fairfield Horseshoe, the Langdale Pikes are within walking distance for many visitors, and the low-level walks include those around Grasmere Lake, along Rydal Water, and up to the tarns of Easedale, Grizedale or Alcock.

Walking Guides
Bridge House Hotel offers two Lake District walking guides by Jonathan Craig. Uniquely, the routes featured are revisited regularly and the guides are updated (even traditional & established walks sometimes change e.g. a path becomes blocked or a new bridge appears!). Some walking routes are available directly from Bridge House Hotel.

You can buy your guides at the hotel when you arrive or you can buy online.

The Lake District is indeed a very special place and was designated a National Park in 1951. The Lake District needs the extra protection and management which this National Park status gives, so that it remains unspoiled. Visit the Lake District National Park Authority website for more information.

Bridge House Hotel Grasmere has raised significant funds for conservation work in the Lake District, including upland and lakeshore footpath restoration. Such work will help us all continue to enjoy this precious scenery for generations to come. We are currently raising funds for South Cumbria Rivers Trust and the Langdale & Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team.

Visit our gallery pages for panoramic pictures of the Lake District and visit our Blencathra or Helvellyn pages for photographs of some favourite walks.

The Lake District is not just for walkers. There is a wealth of things to see and do, including stately homes, castles, gardens, shops, and places where you can stop and simply watch the world go by. There are numerous visitor attractions too, such as the Ravenglass Steam Railway, Mountain Goat Tours, the Ruskin Museum or the Cars of the Stars Centre. We can also recommend Eden Ostrich World, the Tynedale Railway and the Beacon at Whitehaven as worthwhile family outings.
