It was around when William Wordsworth attended the local grammer school.

You can still see the desk where he carved his name - he was nifty with a pen knife rather than a pen in his early days.Surrounded by fells and forests a stone's throw from Esthwaite water close to Lake Windermere and centrally positioned to explore the whole of the Lakes our hotel offers every element for the perfect break.
