We Love

  • Embark on a quintessential luxury escape to the country with a stay at The Forest Side 4*.
  • Located in Grasmere, home to the enchanting poetry of William Wordsworth, this is a beautiful part of the Lake District.
  • Our members will stay in one of three charming room types, with decadent Half Board dining!

Your Destination

The Lake District National Park is famous for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and cultural heritage. With cool, clear lakes, tarns, rivers, ancient woodlands and a wealth of wildlife, the Lake District is truly a place to escape to nature and stand in awe of its brilliant surroundings.

A haven for walkers, the Lake District awaits and is ready to be admired. Loughrigg Terrace, Easedale Tarn, Alcock Tarn, Helm Crag and the Coffin Trail are shorter walks that are not to be missed, whilst more challenging feats include Helvellyn, Langdale Pikes, Fairfield Horseshoe and Scafell Pike. Brave the peaks of Coniston Old Man and Skiddaw for breathtaking scenery.  

Retrace the footsteps of William Wordsworth, who spent most of his life in and around Grasmere, and described it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever known.” Visit Dove Cottage, Rydal Mount and the main fells to tap into his poetic inspirations and influences. Who knows... You might be inclined to weave together a few stanzas too!

The Forest Side 4*

Nestled in the stunning landscape of Wordsworth's Grasmere Vale, The Forest Side 4* is an elegant country house that exudes fairytale Gothic charm. Home to just 20 elegant rooms with furnishings and design by renowned designer James Mackie, this is a truly decadent escape. To make your stay even more special, the hotel is home to its very own Michelin-starred restaurant, serving superb cuisine with fresh local produce.
