Description: Welcome to Ash Cottage Hotel, sister of the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel. Set in the Heart of Grasmere, Ash Cottage Hotel enjoys the most outstanding & breath-taking views of the ever changing surrounding landscapes. We offer superior accommodation & full use of all of our sister Hotel, the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel's, facilities directly opposite. Ash Cottage is the perfect local to be able to explore nature's outstanding beauty & central to the rest of the Lake District. Grasmere is Cumbria's most popular Village and the Ash Cottage Hotel is set in the centre, bringing you into a haven of peace & tranquillity. Dine as the fancy takes you... our Courtyard Restaurant serves the pick of the Lake District Larder. For local ales and tasty bar meals nip next door to the snug Lamb Inn, our traditional village pub, the only one in the village. The Glass House conservatory bar, café & restaurant provides great food with beautiful views, or enjoy our traditional bar meals from Ash Cottage itself. You will be spoilt for choice. At our luxury Lakeland hotel we provide you with all you could wish for, richly furnished, beautifully appointed rooms in which to unwind, two large outdoor seating areas to relax after a wonderful day's walk and friendly service to bring you refreshment while you drink in the Lakeland panorama. Boasting a gorgeous indoor heated pool, enjoy a morning dip before breakfast or a gentle early evening swim, between hiking the great outdoors and sitting down to dinner. If on the other hand your visit is of a business nature, we offer you the space and time to think in a completely fresh setting. Here at the Ash Cottage Hotel & Grasmere Red Lion Hotel you can get away from the everyday routine and enjoy a different view of conferencing.

“Great service and food...........”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Very friendly staff, warm welcome and a great night. I would recommend booking as it gets very busy - ample seating outside and in but still gets packed. Good value for money, menu and specials board full of great food. They also offer an extensive cocktail and wine menu. I would recommend to couples or families.

“Lovely food & great service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We had a gorgeous meal at Ash Cottage, the food was tasty and just the right portion. The staff are friendly and helpful, dog friendly outside where we ate.
At the end of the village it is lovely and peaceful.
Look forward to visiting again soon.

“Best value in Grasmere”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Having just returned from a one week holiday in Grasmere we concluded that Eva's Restaurant in the Ash Cottage Hotel presented the best value evening meal with good service in the village. We enjoyed two meals with most main courses priced between £9 and £12.The standard menu was supported by a daily changing list of specials. In particular, we liked the fish, rump steak, gammon steak all served with chips and trimmings. Specials included a giant yorkshire pudding containing lamb hot pot on one evening and game and vegetables on another.
Most restaurants are a lot more expensive in Grasmere so Eva's presents a more affordable choice for families while not skimping on quality.
