You are very likely to agree with the great poet's assessment after a visit to the Wordsworth Hotel. Situated in two acres of riverside gardens in the very heart of the English Lake District and at the centre of one of its prettiest villages, the historic Wordsworth hotel combines all the comfort of a 4-star hotel with the magnificence of the stunning countryside. Adjoining is the church where Wordsworth, Grasmere's most famous son, worshipped and now rests among the glorious scenery. The elegant lounges, magnificent conservatory and cocktail bar lookout over to the churchyard and Grasmere Vale. The suites and bedrooms are individually furnished with complimentary hospitality trays, bathrobes and modern appointments. There is also a heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi and a spa. The Signature Restaurant, with its superb AA Rosetted food, makes for a highlight of any visit as the gourmet cuisine is perfectly matched by elegant service and an eclectic wine list. For a more informal option, try the Dove Bistro with its menu of excellently prepared comfort food favourites. The Wordsworth, known for its welcome, is very convenient for Lakeland's principal beauty spots and places of interest.
