The Old Dungeon Ghyll is in England’s Lake District, a beautiful area that inspired some of the greatest poetry ever written. Indeed the air still resounds with Coleridge’s blessing:
‘Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee, Whether the summer clothe the general earth With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing’.
300 years old, the hotel was once an inn that housed travelers and their tired horses. In the 20th Century, it became a haunt for some ambitious mountain climbers, keen to take advantage of the nearby crags and peaks. Nowadays it is a unique hotel that has kept much of its unusual features. It is a place for the adventurous whether you want to go ballooning, paragliding or climbing – this is the place for you. And after a hard day's fun in the bracing climate, you can return rosy-cheeked and merry to the restaurant and bar where traditional English pies and ales are served. Your room is convivial and comfortable with tremendous views of the surrounding hills and fens.
