What a lovely little find this was. Although on the main road into Grasmere it is set back and was quiet. The staff were excellent, the food was delicious and the road was perfect with lovely views of the gardens and hills beyond

The Swan was a pleasant experience with extremely helpful staff and a nice restaurant. A handy position along the road and a sizeable car park. The village of Grassmere was within easy walking distance.

About
Description
Built in 1650 as a coaching inn, and mentioned in a Wordsworth poem "The Waggoner", Macdonald Swan Hotel, Grasmere is one of the oldest hotels in the Lake District. Nestled in the Cumbrian countryside, with More views across the Fells, our cosy and inviting hotel is ideal for walkers and cyclists. With open sunny vistas in summer and blazing log fires in winter, it's the ideal base for exploring the wonders of the Lake District National Park. Afterwards, relax with a delicious meal in our restaurant or enjoy the convivial atmosphere of the Walkers' Bar before retiring to a traditionally - furnished, comfortable room. Less
