The house has many stories to tell, not to mention a never-ending list of visitors including many writers, painters and explorers, since it opened its doors back in the 1800’s. We are proud to be the most recent custodians of Lancrigg and are looking forward to becoming part of its history.
Lancrigg is a beautiful country house hotel set in 30 acres of mature gardens and woodlands. Lancrigg is situated in ‘Wordsworth Country’ 1 mile from Grasmere village in the tiny hamlet of Easedale. The house has a relaxed, informal feel and visitors are made to feel welcome and at home from the moment they arrive.
There are ten spacious bedrooms to choose from, many with views of the gardens and fells beyond. All are en-suite and offer a comfortable & restful stay.
The newly opened Poet’s Bar provides a relaxing and comfortable area to enjoy light refreshments, while you take in stunning views of the surrounding fells.
Next to be re-furbished is the dining room, with its grand fireplace and beautiful bay window overlooking the gardens it is the perfect setting in which to dine, whatever the weather. Throughout the summer months, (yes.. there are sunny days in Lakeland) lunch can also be enjoyed Alfresco, on the terrace amongst the backdrop of the gardens with the only noise being that of the quiet chatter of guests and birdsong!
For guests of the Hotel and non-residents the kitchen offers a bar menu with delicious light lunch menus that include meat and vegetarian dishes including afternoon teas.
Dinner is served from 6.30 each evening and with Chef Gary McDermott at the helm there is always a mouth-watering variety of delectable options to tuck in to.
