Victorian House Hotel in Grasmere is now officially open. From the team behind Georgian House Hotel in Pimlico, London, the hotel is a ‘country cousin’ to its city counterpart. It is being run by Dan Gatehouse, operations manager of the property along with the hotel owner, Serena von der Heyde overseeing the newest opening.
It has 19 individually designed bedrooms, a shepherd’s hut and several open-plan shared guest spaces designed by Laura Fulmine, as well as a tranquil riverside garden and a range of outdoor facilities. The new venture sees classic Victorian building being injected with modern and romantic design elements and eclectic details to complement the building’s original features.
The 19 spacious bedrooms are made up of a range of ensuite twin and double rooms, as well as two suites and one two-bedroom suite. There are four special stargazer rooms which will have dual aspect hip-to-ceiling windows and telescopes. Every room has its own individual design and each will be overflowing with character and charm. A luxury shepherd’s hut at the end of the garden will sit by the river and offer an alternative accommodation option for guests.
