An open fire and open-arms welcome greet you as you enter the flag-floored, oak-beamed Queens' Head Hotel, in the English Lake District. New face or old flame, we offer you the same cosy reception. You'll feel instantly at ease amongst our real ales, genuine hospitality and food so local, so fresh and so full of flavour, it's a revelation. Our hotel has been part of picturesque Hawkshead since the sixteenth century. It was around when William Wordsworth attended the local grammer school. You can still see the desk where he carved his name - he was nifty with a pen knife rather than a pen in his early days. Surrounded by fells and forests, a stone's throw from Esthwaite water, close to Lake Windermere & centrally positioned to explore the whole of the Lakes our hotel offers every element for the perfect break.
