Feel Safe with Us

As the whole world is adapting to a new normal, we want to make sure that we continue to offer our guests the absolute best safe experiences in these changing times.

We are truly fortunate that besides the beautiful fresh Cumbrian air, The inn at Grasmere was built with lots of dining and lounge space for you to enjoy. Our large ground floor has lots of areas for you to unwind, be that looking out to the Village taking some ‘you time’ in our lounge, or savouring a bite to eat in our Glass house Conservatory or Patio area looking onto the beautiful fields & fells, we also have our 1769 Bar & Restaurant dining area open for hearty meals after a long day up the fells.

At The Inn at Grasmere we want to help make your experience as safe and as enjoyable as possible. We all have a part to play by taking personal responsibility, to follow Government guidelines. And at the Inn we’re taking a responsible approach too, with robust hygiene measures that go above and beyond the Government recommendations. And we’re reassuring you that we have taken an entirely sensible approach to how we run our hotel with our ‘Inn Wellbeing’ programme; designed to protect both you and our colleagues, so we can deliver a safe and enjoyable stay for all.

A warm welcome awaits you in the Heart of the Lakes at The inn at Grasmere. A true destination for people who value time together – now more than ever.

General Manager

At The Quay we’ve always put the wellbeing of our guests first. It’s just one of the ways we make sure everyone who stays with us has an unforgettable experience. And, now we’re ready to welcome you back into our hotel, we want you to know that your health, safety and wellbeing is more important to us than ever. 

We’re proud to introduce our Quay Wellbeing programme – a carefully crafted range of new safety measures to make sure every moment of your stay is a safe one to enjoy. From meticulous deep cleaning of bedrooms to our thoughtful social distancing measures inside and outside the hotel. 

But of course, we’re all in this together. To keep everyone safe, we need your help too. Washing hands and keeping a social distance from other guests who are not in your party are as important here as they are in the outside world.
