Former home of Lake Poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey, Greta Hall is now offers beautiful self-catering accommodation for 22, 14, 11, 6 or 2 plus Bed & Breakfast rooms.

Ideally located, Greta Hall offers guests lovely accommodation and unexpected seclusion on a little hill bordered by the River Greta, with a large garden with incredible views in all directions and untamed woodland. All just a few minutes walk to Keswick town centre.

Wear your running shoes or slippers at 8am, wellies, walking boots or water shoes at 10am and your high heels for dinner. Put your feet up, let your children enjoy themselves, find plenty of quiet spaces to relax, ponder, research read or write, follow one of the hundreds of stunning walks from the door, enjoy a day of lake-based activities or wander into a town full of wonderful eateries and shops.

Greta Hall is a house that has inspired writing, philosophical thinking and creativity for over two hundred years; and continues to do so. Famous visitors include: the Wordsworth's, Lord Byron, Keats, Shelley, Sir Walter Scott, Sir George & Lady Beaumont, De Quincey, Dr. Arnold, Sir. John Stuart Mill, William Wilberforce, Ruskin, Humphrey Davey, Lamb, Hazlitt, Steve Coogan, Rob Bryon, Micheal Winterbottom, Sir John Hurt, Celia Burbush, Tony Britton and Lorraine Pascal. We have been a venue for The Antiques Roadshow, The Trip, Good Housekeeping and various Japanese TV shows.

Greta Hall offers something for everyone. From individuals or couples seeking some time away, families taking time together, large reunions, university groups or poets, writers and artists seeking inspiration. We organise retreats, events, tours, workshops and artist in residence programmes.
