An award-winning Lake District hotel and restaurant that "quickly became a celebrity hangout" has welcomed more than just a couple of well-known TV faces.

It was recently revealed that two Hollywood megastars also dined at the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa.

In February, we reported on Strictly Come Dancing star Maisie Smith and Wanted (the band) boyfriend Max George staying at the hotel.

They were not the only famous faces to grace the Keswick hotel. Love Islander's Molly Mae-Hague, the creative director of Pretty Little Thing, Tommy Fury, and Kady McDermott have also visited The Falls Spa.

But we can now reveal that an Oscar winner and a star of some of the biggest action franchises have also been seen there.

Colin Firth CBE

CBE-knighted actor, Colin Firth, is most well-known for his multi-award-winning performance in The King’s Speech as he portrayed King George VI in his ascension to the throne. 

Whilst filming Supernova in the area with Stanley Tucci, Colin popped into the popular Mizu, for a spot of pan-Asian lunch.

Simon Pegg

Mizu also had the pleasure of welcoming none other than the legendary comedian, Simon Pegg; originally famous for co-creating Channel 4 sitcom, Spaced, and his roles in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and World’s End. 

Pegg has also starred in Star Trek and the Mission Impossible franchise.

Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa:

In 2021, Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa was crowned as the ‘Best Countryside Getaway’ in the whole of the UK.

Competition was fierce, but the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa came out on top and the award was bestowed to The Falls Spa manager Davina Hassell who said at the time: “I cannot express how much it means to both me, my spa team and the rest of the employees at the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa to receive this award.” 

“After an unprecedented year of hotel closures, it is excellent that our beautiful, countryside hotel has gotten the recognition it truly deserves and every single team member across the hotel should be proud of themselves.”
