If you read the blog on Monday you’ll know I was still feeling blissfully relaxed and spoilt after a wonderful weekend courtesy of The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa in Grasmere. Regular readers will know the Lake District is my home, and every other (sunny!) weekend I’m to be found with my guy wandering up and down the mountains here. So to be offered a relaxing break on a rainy Saturday in February was a dream come true – and while we couldn’t tick off any summits this weekend, we had the most amazing time exploring Grasmere and The Wordsworth so we could tell you all about the place here on English Wedding.

For those of you who haven’t been to the Lakes, Grasmere is one of our most picturesque villages, nestled in between high mountains and two of the prettiest little lakes. Most buildings here date from the 19th or early 20th century, and the village is famous for being home to William Wordsworth. It’s basically a destination for a ‘home from home’ wedding on UK shores – ideal for couples who’d like to travel a little but without the hassle of flying – and perfect for a weekend wedding.
