Former home of the Lake Poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey, Greta Hall is now a family home and three extremely comfortable 4* self-catering accommodation options.

Frequented by William & Dorothy Wordsworth, Lord Byron, Keats, Shelley, Sir Walter Scott, Sir George & Lady Beaumont, De Quincey, Dr. Arnold, Sir. John Stuart Mill, Robert Owen, William Wilberforce, Ruskin, Humphrey Davey, Lamb and Hazlitt.

Greta Hall offers unexpected seclusion only five minutes walk from Keswick town centre. Ideal for exploring Skiddaw, Latrigg, Derwentwater and the Borrowdale, Bassenthwaite & Newlands valleys. We are just 13 miles from Grasmere (Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount) and 17 miles from Hill Top Farm (Beatrix Potter). A perfect base for walkers, cyclists, families, historians; anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the Lakes.

A large, utilitarian garden and untamed woodland with river frontage surround this fine Georgian house. The buildings have been sympathetically restored using traditional materials, the structure of the house has changed little since the early 1800s - except some significant additions to the plumbing and heating!
