Lying between Grasmere and Ambleside, the Cumbrian village of Rydal sits at the head of the picturesque Rydal Water in the very heart of the Lake District.

Steeped in literary history, the Romantic Poet William Wordsworth lived in Rydal for nearly 35 years and fell absolutely in love with the scenery here. Visitors can still climb the rocky outcrop at the western end of the waters of Rydal Head known as Wordsworth's Seat, believed to be one of the poet's favourite viewing points anywhere in the Lakes. And with good reason -the serene shores, green fields carpeted with bluebells, the towering heights of Loughrigg Fell… you sense you've truly slipped into a natural paradise. Be sure to visit Rydal Mount, Wordsworth's home, or wander the pretty landscaped gardens he lovingly designed -complete, quite fittingly, with daffodils 'fluttering and dancing in the breeze'.
