Welcome to the Macdonald Swan Hotel. Slow down, unwind, and let us look after you.
The Macdonald Swan Hotel (to which Lake poet William Wordsworth affectionately refers in his poem 'The Waggoner') is the perfect base for exploring the Lake District. It prides itself on its centuries-old reputation for true English hospitality and personal service, and welcomes back many loyal guests year after year.
Whatever the reason for your visit, and whatever the weather outside, you can expect to sleep soundly within the walls of this 17th century coaching inn. Many of our bedrooms have magnificent views across the garden towards Helm Crag and Dunmail Raise.
Did you know that every country in the world has a team of chefs that competes in the Culinary Olympics? Terry Woolcock, head chef at the Macdonald Swan Hotel, is a member of the British team. Need we say more? Only that you are assured of the very finest in food and drink when you stay with us!
