Welcome to the Daffodil Hotel & Spa, by the shores of Grasmere water..

Combining stylish contemporary interiors inside, with stunning natural beauty outside, The Daffodil presents a concept brand new to The Lake District.
When you check into a luxury bedroom at The Daffodil, your experience of Lake District accommodation with a difference really begins… Beautifully appointed by Interior Designer Paul Sawford, each room features bespoke carpets and indulgent colours. Stunning bathrooms complete with Molton Brown toiletries for all, huge beds made up with crisp white cotton and a multimedia panel for the technology savvy, brings the very best in contemporary comfort to the heart of the countryside.

Guests staying at The Daffodil can also indulge in the hotel’s luxury spa complete with a 10m thermal pool, steam room, sauna and tepidarium. A unique concept in Cumbria, the Spa at The Daffodil combined with top European skincare house Germaine de Capuccini offers a complete escape from reality.

Dining is a stylish and contemporary affair, with a tempting modern menu and stunning lake views as far as the eye can see. Led by our Executive Chef, Graham Harrower, and creative Kitchen Team, The Daffodil offers a dining experience not to be missed. Our menus feature some of the county’s finest local produce to bring you dishes of the highest quality, many being traditional classics presented with a modern twist. The dining room enjoys a lake view, as does the Sitting Room where afternoon tea is served and in the warmer weather – enjoy the beautiful views from our outdoor Terrace.

Located in the heart of The Lake District and just a short walk into Grasmere village, the hotel is ideally situated on the A591 as you enter Grasmere which allows easy access to the popular Lake District towns of Keswick 13 miles to the north and Ambleside 4 miles to the south.

    “Very good, could be excellent.”

    We did not find the menu or wine list inspiring to the extent that we ate elsewhere.

    The spa was duly booked.

    The room, setting and staff were great.

    How to get there:

    By rail: From the West Coast Main Line, change at Oxenholme for Windermere. From Windermere, take one of the many buses 555/556 or 599. Taxis are readily available from Windermere train station. The jouney is about seven miles.

    By road: Situated on the A591, Grasmere is easily accessible from the M6 motorway, exiting at jct 36.

    The A591
    The section of this road from Windermere to Keswick via Ambleside and Grasmere has been rightly voted by a popular motoring section as the most scenic in the country. It runs alongside Lake Windermere, Rydal Water, Grasmere, over Dunmail Raise with Helvellyn on one side and Thirlmere on the other, the magnificent views toward St Johns in the Vale and Blencathra and finally to the panorama of Derwentwater as you begin the descent to Keswick.

    Kirkstone Pass
    Take the A591 from Grasmere to the mini-roundabout on the outskirts of Ambleside and its exit leading to the highest pass open to traffic in the Lake District where some sections have a gradient of 1 in 4. Wordsworth wrote "it is most potent when mists veil the sky". Apparently this steep winding road, originally a drovers track, was named so after a large stone landmark on the roadside which from some angles resembles a church steeple, hence "Kirkstone".
