The Lodore Falls Waterfall

The Lodore Falls is accessible via a short walk from the hotel, unfortunately currently there is no access from the hotel whilst we are building our new Spa and bedroom complex.

The Falls are popular with our guests and for our brides wedding photos, indeed the Falls have been a popular Lake District destination since Victorian times!

The waterfall is formed by the beck from Watendlath Tarn cascading over huge boulders for a distance of some 100 feet. The Falls are spectacular after periods of heavy rain!

The waterfall can be accessed by walking through our award winning gardens, crossing the beck over a footbridge, and through some woodland before climbing very slightly to reach the falls. There is a bench which allows easy viewing of the falls if you wish to relax and enjoy the view.

A famous onomatopoeic poem, Cataract of Lodore, written by Robert Southey in 1820, was inspired by the falls. The poem can be read in full here. But here is a excerpt from it;

...dashing and flashing and splashing and clashing;
And so never ending, but always descending,
Sounds and motions for ever and ever are blending
All at once and all o'er, with a mighty uproar, -
And this way the water comes down at Lodore.
