Oak Bank Hotel in Grasmere
Nestled in Grasmere Village in the heart of the English Lake District, Oak Bank Hotel is perfectly placed to explore the surrounding lakes, fells and tarns.
Oak Bank has two lounges both with plenty of comfy sofas and armchairs to relax in. The front lounge has a converted range and the bar lounge has a real log & coal fire and unsurprisingly a bar! We offer free Wi-Fi internet access for those of you who need to keep in touch with the outside world.
The Dining Room is our Two AA Rosette awarded Restaurant, it has been reviewed in the Observer by the food critic Jay Rayner. Some have said it is the most complimentary review he has ever written. Click here to read it. The Head Chef is Cumbrian Darren Comish. Darren won through to the final of the current series of MasterChef: The Professionals and has just been named 'Chef of the Year' at the Cumbria Life Food & Drink Awards 2015. The beautiful dining room and conservatory overlooks the garden which you are welcome to sit in or walk down to see the River Rothay as it passes by on its way to Lake Grasmere. We serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in The Dining Room and Morning Coffee in our lounges every day.
Oak Bank currently has nine individually decorated en-suite Bedrooms in different grades to suit your requirements. Five standard rooms on the second floor have been taken out and are being replaced by four bedrooms in a new grade of Superior View that should be completed by Easter. The beds are probably the comfiest beds in Grasmere made by Somnus or VI Spring.
Park your car at the front of the hotel and you could leave it there for the duration of your stay!
