Oak Bank in Grasmere
OUR UNIQUE LAKE DISTRICT HOTEL WITH 2 AA ROSETTES FOR DINING
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.
Award Winning Food
The Dining Room is one of the best restaurants in the Lake District. It is open to non resident diners as well as resident guests and has become a foodie destination in its own right.
We are open every day for Breakfast, Morning Coffee, Lunch and Dinner.
A meal at The Dining Room will be a highlight of your stay in the Lake District.
When you visit Oak Bank Hotel you have a definite advantage over certain other places in the Lakes.
Grasmere Village, being the central location that it is, means that you have everything in the Lake District within easy reach.
Keswick is a leisurely twenty-minute drive away through spectacular countryside - Ambleside lies to the south and is an ideal pause in your journey down to Windermere, through similarly impressive scenery.
Grasmere enjoys a certain tranquillity compared to the busy towns surrounding it and the word "busy" in Grasmere does not mean the same kind of busy you might find in Ambleside, Bowness or Keswick.
On venturing out of the hotel, a short walk finds you at the historically significant site of William Wordsworth's grave situated within the grounds of St. Oswald’s Church with the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden close by. You can also visit Dove Cottage, his former home.
We also have arguably the best known gingerbread shop in the country just a few minutes stroll from the hotel.
The village also boasts several outdoors equipment shops, art galleries, a garden centre, coffee shops for those essential top-up breaks and the open-topped Lakeland Tour Bus stops by every 20 minutes...
