Luxury Getaway at Daffodil Hotel

October 09, 2016 Grasmere, The Lake District

Hello Freckles Luxury Lake District Spa Hotel Daffodil Grasmere Bed
At the end of September, we headed away for a couple of days for my birthday. I didn't want a big fuss, so a trip over to the Lake District sounded just the thing. It became even better when we arranged to stay at Daffodil Hotel in Grasmere which just reopened this summer, following the devastation caused by the floods. With their newly refreshed spa and some incredible views, I couldn't wait to get there.

Our room was stunning - I'm sure you'll agree from the photos above! Located on the top floor with two huge windows; the kind you can sit in with a cuppa and gaze out of, the biggest bed I've ever seen, gorgeous Matisse artwork and a bathroom with his and hers sinks, plenty of little Molton Brown minis plus a bath and shower.

The spa was something special too, with a 10m hydrothermal pool, sauna and steam room, you could really switch off and relax. We spent a little time using the facilities before we were whisked away into our double treatment room; my boyfriend to have the deep tissue massage and I had the Obsidian and Onyx Back Massage and Facial. In two words; absolute bliss. My skin felt brighter and energised when I left the room in my hazy state and the therapist Laura was so lovely and friendly! Does anyone else find massages so relaxing they could just doze off?

You can dine in the restaurant at Daffodil Hotel without being a guest, but I would highly recommend booking a table. We arrived to dinner around 7pm and by 8/8:30pm it was packed (and that was a Monday night) My risotto starter was sublime and I could've happily eaten it as my main dish - which is quite the compliment when I had half a lobster to follow. For dessert, I had to pick the cheeseboard whilst my boyfriend tucked into a crumble to follow his steak. I overheard a couple of guests dining at a table nearby claim my cheeseboard was too large for one person - clearly they weren't aware that cheese and wine together is one of my favourite things.

The following morning I found it very difficult to drag myself out of bed, being so snug. I spent some time opening birthday presents in bed, wrapped in my fluffy dressing gown before we headed down for a full english breakfast. After an hour or so in the spa we checked out, to head home to see my family and continue the birthday celebrations. Thank you, Daffodil, you were a delight, even the rain didn't dampen our spirits; I'm sure we'll be back soon (read: I hope my boyfriend books up to bring us back, ha!)

ps. what do you think of the new design on Hello Freckles?

We were kindly offered a complimentary dinner, B&B stay with Daffodil, but I truly loved it and you know I wouldn't lie about food - or how comfy the bed was!

    1. Thanks Laura! It was a little rainy when we stayed, so we didn't really have the chance to sit with a drink on the patio - but I bet it's lovely to sit out there for afternoon tea!

  2. We stayed at the Gilpin in Windermere on our Minimoon last month but I remember seeing the Daffodil pop up when I was researching where to go, it looked beautiful so I'm really happy you've given me the chance to have a nose inside. A definite one for the list!

  3. This hotel must have been the perfect place to start of your birthday celebrations! The Lake District and Grasmere are so beautiful and it's great to see places like this recover from the floods so well. I might even have to book myself a little stay!

  8. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Minerva D. Taylor from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Adams can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Adams. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Adamsusmanultimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
