Beyond Scenic Views – Windermere Hotel

Beyond Scenic Views – Windermere Hotel:

One of Windermere’s most imposing buildings is the the Windermere Hotel, originally known as Rigg’s Windermere Hotel.

The hotel was the first hotel in Windermere and opened at the same time as the railway came to the town.

This listed building was built in 1847 by Abraham Pattinson to attract visitors from the newly opened railway nearby.

Richard Rigg was the first proprietor and coach operator; his ‘four in hand’ coaches travelled over Dunmail Raise to Keswick.

The Windermere Hotel stands as a testament to the golden age of Lakeland tourism.

Its grand architecture, built from local Lakeland slate, whispers tales of bygone eras when steamboats plied the lake and literary giants like Wordsworth sought inspiration in the surrounding fells.
