Greta Hall is a stunning Grade I Georgian manor house situated in the heart of Keswick surrounded by three acres of garden, untamed woodland and river frontage. The structure of the house has changed little since the early 1800s and retains many original features; open fires, wood burning stoves, large bedrooms, cosy reception rooms, well equipped kitchens and stunning views from every window, it is a wonderful place to stay.
Greta Hall is an ideal base for literary scholars, walkers, cyclists, families, groups and historians. Bed & Breakfast guests have access to Southey's Study, whilst Coleridge Wing guests occupy Coleridge's Study and Parlour.
The huge garden makes Greta Hall even more special - a paradise for children with 'the best climbing frames in England', rope swings, zip-wire, trampoline and the river for paddling.a petting zoo with rabbits, lambs, guinea-pigs, hens, ducks & geese,
For grown-ups a slate BBQ and fire pit, a path through the woods, tables & chairs.

The Lake District is the perfect place to live and work with something for everyone whatever their age.
As a family it works for us on every level: as escapees from Hong Kong it was a dream come true. An alternative lifestyle using skills learnt over the previous couple of decades. For our younger kids it gives that traditional childhood that is sadly going out of fashion and schools that are forward- thinking with good and outstanding OFTEDs, for our older kids it provides the perfect antidote to hard student life and a good way to earn money when they come back broke!
'It takes a village/town/ community to raise a child ' and Keswick is the kind of town where this is still true.
"We've been coming to Keswick for years and never knew you were here."
We hear this a lot from guests.
Sitting up on a little hill and sandwiched between the town centre and Fitz Park, Greta Hall offers the green seclusion you look for in a Lake District property with the convenience of being a couple of minutes walk from town.
A huge garden with wonderful vies and plenty for both adults and children to enjoy, a long stretch of the River Greta (with fishing rights) and a rear entrance leading to Fitz Park.
