Greta Hall was built about 1800 and was the former home of the Lake poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey. It was bought by the current owners in 1998 and has been restored to provide superb bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation. There is much information about the history of Greta Hall and its residents in George Botts book, Keswick The Story of a Lake District Town.
Greta Hall comprises 3 wings over 3 floors. With the interconnecting doors unlocked, the hall can sleep up to 22. However, rented separately, each wing is quite private. The Southey Wing sleeps 14. The Coleridge Wing sleeps 6. The Old Wash House sleeps 2.
The property is located about 20 minutes from the M6 (Junction 40) along the A66 and is just 2 minutes walk from Main Street, Keswick with its multitude of wonderful pubs and restaurants.
