These days guests prefer larger bedrooms than when Grasmere was established in 1858, and accommodation has been purpose-built in several newer buildings.
Every guest room at Grasmere Lodge has a king bed or two single beds, two armchairs and a coffee table, CD player with Ipod dock, minibar, wi-fi, a work desk and chair. Each private patio or deck has two outdoor chairs for enjoying the views and fresh mountain air.
A selection of teas, freshly ground coffee, home-baked cookies and port is also provided in each room.
The tiled ensuite bathrooms feature a jacuzzi bath, separate glass shower, double vanities, thick bathrobes, hairdryer, and nightlight. They have underfloor heating and demisting mirrors.
Each room has original artworks inspired by the landscape outside, and is decorated in the rich colours of the tussock-covered hills.
