Forest Side is an attractive, secluded Victorian stately hotel, situated in wooded estate in the Lake District. It is located at Wordsworth's picturesque Grasmere village. Home to wild deer, red squirrels and a badger set. This traditional stately home built by the Earl of Lonsdale reflects the style and seclusion of the era, and has magnificent views and a unique and elegant interior. The staff make every effort to make Forest Side somewhere to relax and de-stress. Our guests can enjoy walking around our grounds. Holding a much envied position on the lower slopes of Butter Crag, a short stroll down the sweeping private driveway from the hotel itself, lies Grasmere Village, Wordsworths inspiration, from the creative romantic, to the serious fell walker, there is a side of Grasmere that everyone can fall in love with.
