Former home of Lake Poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey, Greta Hall is now a family home offering extremely comfortable self-catering accommodation and Bed & Breakfast.
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 is an inspring place for a holiday or research.
More recently, featured in the BBC series 'The trip' with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon and we hosted an episode of 'My Kitchen Rules' for Sky Living.
Greta Hall offers unexpected seclusion close to Keswick town centre and is an ideal base for literary scholars, walkers, cyclists, families and historians. Anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the Lakes.
A large garden and untamed woodland with river frontage surround this fine Georgian house. The structure of the house has changed little since the early 1800s - except some significant additions to the plumbing and heating systems! All restoration work has been carried out sympathetically using traditional materials.
