Parts of the Glen Rothay Hotel date back to the early 17th century, and the additions over the years provide a charming and interesting backdrop to your visit.

We can provide you with expert advice on what to do during your stay at the Glen Rothay Hotel whether it's a leisurely stroll around Rydal Water and Grasmere or something a little more energetic like hiring mountain bikes in Ambleside and tackling some of the many nearby hills and mountains.
