Oak Bank was originally commissioned as a private house built in 1872. It became a hotel in 1920.
Glynis & Simon Wood have owned and managed Oak Bank Hotel since April 2007, ably assisted by a small team of staff.
Many of our Guests return to Oak Bank two, three or four times a year to enjoy the Lake District in the different seasons, whether it’s for strenuous mountain hikes, a walk around Lake Grasmere, an amble around the village, or just to completely relax.
Why do people come back repeatedly when there is so much choice for accommodation in the Lake District?
Maybe it’s because we take great pride in Oak Bank and the service we provide, or the quality of the food that constantly surprises first time guests and regulars alike?
It could be the comfortable sofas in the lounges that many a guest has grabbed forty winks on – just let us know before you fall asleep if you’d like waking!
Or maybe it’s because we enjoy what we do and it shows?
Maybe you’ll come and see whether you like Oak Bank and become one of our growing number of regular guests who regard Oak Bank as a home from home?
