Promotional Feature

An award-winning venue, the four-star Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere offers charming qualities that marry the comfort of home with the luxury of an exclusive wedding venue.


Set in the heart of the Lake District and offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and rolling mountains, The Wordsworth is a vision to behold. Nestled in the village of Grasmere, The Wordsworth is situated off the A591 road and is a three-minute walk from the River Rothay.




Originally built around 1850 for the Earl of Cadogan as his private hunting lodge, The Wordsworth earned the function that we know today in 1874 following the Victorian tourist boom and the completion of the North Western railway in 1847. The Wordsworth has hosted European royalty, American presidents and numerous celebrities.




A bespoke and personalised culinary experience awaits couples and their wedding guests at the family-run Wordsworth Hotel. The venue’s Signature restaurant has been awarded a 2 AA rosette, cementing the quality and standard to be expected from each and every dining experience. The wedding breakfast menus have been designed around fresh local produce, classic elements and flavour combinations that cater to the masses while retaining a true ‘wow’ factor.




Couples can opt for a religious or civil ceremony; while St Oswald’s ancient church sits next door to the venue, the Wordsworth Hotel presents a myriad of rooms in which to say “I do”. From the conservatory to the classical lounges and riverside garden gazebo, the venue offers a selection of indoor and outdoor locations to suit every couple’s requirements.

The Coleridge Suite is primed to deliver the evening celebrations, accommodating up to 120 guests. Boasting state of the art atmosphere LED lighting, staging, air conditioning, an in-built dancefloor and dedicated bar, the suite’s various features ensure that all entertainment needs are met.



An exceptionally professional team offer experience and enthusiasm aplenty, helping you to plan and execute your big day without the worry. With a specialism in making dream wedding days come true, couples will be introduced to their dedicated wedding planner from the outset.
