Nestled on the glass-like shores of Grasmere, The Daffodil Hotel & Spa has one of the most idyllic locations in the country. Our 4* luxury hotel features 78 contemporary bedrooms, a lakeside restaurant, award-winning Spa, stylish bar, an outdoor terrace and wedding gazebo plus a stunning collection of beautiful wedding and event suites.
Luxury, spoiling and indulgence are our speciality, but there is so much more to The Daffodil that makes us extra-special... and that is our people.
