Accommodation Description:

Grizedale Lodge is set on the edge of the magnificent Grizedale Forest. The Lodge is wonderfully central for all the many attractions - historical, cultural and natural - that Lakeland possesses. Two miles away is the picturesque village of Hawkshead with its Inns and Restaurants and the historic Grammar School that Wordsworth attended - and whose name is still to be seen scratched into the desk - and there too is the Beatrix Potter exhibition.

One can walk over the hill to the rear of the Hotel to Brantwood, home of John Ruskin, and Coniston Water. Our visitors can drive through lovely scenic roads to Lakeside and choose to travel on the preserved Railway or on the steamers that ply their way the length of Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside. Alternatively, a short drive takes one to the popular market town of Ambleside or to Sawrey and the car ferry to Windermere or one can head easily towards Grasmere and beyond.

Being at the heart of the Lake District means that nothing and nowhere is too far! All bedrooms offer en-suite comfort with tasteful decoration, colour TV with individual or integrated DVD players, free use of the hotels comprehensive collection of DVDS for both children and grown ups and fully stocked tea and coffee making facilities. The fine four-poster rooms provide, for those who wish it, especially luxurious accommodation. In summer the balcony & patio are the perfect places to take one\'s ease after a long day spent either exploring the walks that start at the front door or travelling further afield and relaxing for a night-cap before a well-earned rest.

The Lodge is not just Bed & Breakfast but a beautiful place to be for those who want somewhere a little bit better! A splendid centre, allowing a full and free day of discovery, knowing at night there is nowhere nicer to return to rest.
