Glenridding House Hotel description

Hotel / Conference Centre

Medium (1-150)

Glenridding House just classic Regency elegance. This magnificent Grade two Listed villa was originally built in around 1815 with its unique fine cast iron latticed arched balcony in a truly stunning location. It was built for Reverend Askew who married a Storrs lady. Documents show the house was used as a guest house by Mrs Dalton and Robert Bownass and it continued in this guide for most of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Dolly steamboat was recovered in the 1960s moored in front of Glenridding House, it sank ther in a storm, this first historic steamboat is now in the Windermere steam boat museum.

Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin stayed at Glenridding House and came with members of his family for a five week holiday in June 1881. Thanks to some surviving letters from Darwin’s daughters, as well as a letter he himself wrote it is clear that he gained much enjoyment from his time by Ullswater. As his daughter Henrietta wrote of the holiday:

“it was an especial happiness to my mother for the rest of her life to remember her little strolls with my father to the side of the lake. I have a vivid picture in my mind of the two often setting off alone together for a certain favourite walk by the edge of some fine rocks going sheer down into the lake”

Please note - Our conference venue is available for a maximum of 5 persons, exclusively residential minimum two nights.
