In the very heart of English Lakeland, and the centre of one of its loveliest villages, The Wordsworth combines the sophistication of the first-class hotel with the magnificence of the surrounding countryside. Situated in two acres of landscaped grounds, next to the churchyard where William Wordsworth is buried, its name honours the memory of the area’s most famous son. The scenery that so inspired the Lake Poets can be enjoyed from the peaceful lounges, furnished with fine antiques, or in the conservatory and cocktail bar, with the aid of a favourite aperitif or specially mixed drink.
