About the hotel

Having once had the famous writer, author and literary figure Thomas De Quincy as a tenant for a short time.
The house was later occupied by the Hon. WE. Forster. MP for the borough of Bradford, and the first minister of education. It was during this time in the 1870’s that extensive additions were added in the decorative & imaginative style of an affluent Regency country house. Offering guests a peaceful and tranquil setting, yet all within easy access to Ambleside and all the amenities the village has to offer.
