Imposing mountains, wild landscapes, tranquil lakes and picturesque towns combine to make the Lake District uniquely beautiful, and one of the best places in Britain for walking, climbing, boating and biking.

Official star rating:
This large, well-run hotel makes a sensible and smart place to stay.
It’s in a very central spot near Grasmere, and is the only hotel in the area with a proper lakeside location. It’s extremely handy for visiting the main Wordsworth sites, too: Dove Cottage is right across the road.
Facilities are excellent (including the lovely spa) and the hotel feels surprisingly modern, despite its imposing Victorian façade.
Family rooms, junior suites, accessible rooms – you’ll find them all at the Daffodil, making this one of the Lake District’s most versatile hotels.
