Macdonald Swan Hotel

Macdonald Swan Hotel in Grasmere is one of the oldest in the Lake District. Built in 1650 as a coaching inn, the hotel was even mentioned in a Wordsworth poem "The Waggoner". Nestled in the Cumbrian countryside, with views across the Fells, the cozy 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 the restaurant or enjoy the convivial atmosphere of the Walkers' Bar before retiring to a traditionally - furnished, comfortable room.
