Hotel Overview

Set in the calming shadow of England's highest fells, overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, Castle Inn Hotel, BW Signature Collection is the ideal location to explore the northern region of the Lake District. From the mysterious trails through Dodd Wood to the glorious views of the surrounding countryside, we can safely say that all rooms come with a view! Add to that more local points of interest like a nesting site of the beautiful Osprey or the majestic Skiddaw Mountain, and you'll be hard pushed to find many better settings for a truly relaxing retreat... there really is something for everyone to enjoy! Our extensive leisure and conference facilities add another dimension to this excellent accommodation, while easy motorway access makes anything possible as far as getting out and about (and beyond) is concerned. The hotel has a bronze rating with Cumbria Business Environment Network Scheme, and the family run friendliness is never ending!

A visit to Wordsworth House and Garden is a unique opportunity to experience late 18th-century life at first hand. This lovely Georgian townhouse, in the Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, was the birthplace and childhood home of romantic poet William and his sister Dorothy. Presented as their bustling family home and staffed by costumed servants, it offers an unforgettable chance for all ages to see, smell, hear, touch and even taste what it was like to live in the 1770s. There are daily ten-minute talks, poetry readings, children's trails and tastings of recipes the Wordsworth's servants might have prepared. During school holidays, there is also a full program of family activities. Make yourself at home in the hands-on rooms including an amazing working Georgian kitchen; help the servants with their chores, listen to their tales of life with the family, and learn the fascinating story of the house and garden.
