Tranquil dining, quiet luxury
At Bridge House, our River Pantry is yours. You’ll find breakfast served just the way you like it, with a chef on hand each morning. The Pantry stays open all day with scones and cakes available. On arrival, your host will provide all the tea and coffee you need to feel at home.
Bridge House is your home to explore Grasmere, and that often starts with food! We encourage our guests to explore the vibrant local culinary scene. For specific recommendations, just ask your host, although we can always suggest a visit to the historic 1769 Bar and Grill at the Inn at Grasmere.
Grasmere is full of small cafes and restaurants. Anywhere you go, you’ll be supporting local enterprises; there’s not a single branded cafe in the village.
Rather stay in? Talk to the Bridge House host about having a Cumbria cold platter or charcuterie served to you in the Tarnview Lounge. Or feel free to take it to the Alcock Veranda or the quiet Wordsworth Patio behind the Bridge House and relax beside the river. Your hosts will be happy to recommend a nice wine pairing for the platter of your choice.
The Bridge House emphasises quality rather than formality. On arrival, you’ll check in with your host in the Tarnview Lounge. With a well-stocked bar and a wood-burning stove for atmosphere, the Lounge is the perfect place to catch up with friends, enjoy a drink, or plan your day. If you need additional resources or help planning your next outing, the staff is eager to give you advice on what to see and where to eat.
The River Pantry
In the River Pantry, you’ll find a hearty breakfast every morning. Cold platters are available throughout the day on request, with cookies and snacks always on offer in the River Pantry.
The Bridge House sits right in Grasmere, but by being situated along the river and slightly off the road it manages to feel quiet without being isolated. There’s no better place to enjoy the gardens, the hills, and the sound of the river than the Alcock Veranda. It also makes a great staging area for your next walk and wander about!
Nestled behind the Bridge House, right along the banks of the River Rothay, you’ll find the Wordsworth Patio. It’s the perfect place to relax with a drink and take in the sound of the river and the tolling of the bell from nearby St. Oswald’s. Rest here a bit, and enjoy the peace and quiet of Bridge House at its best.
