    “This property does sleep 8 and the bedrooms and bathrooms are generous.”

    However, in my opinion, it does lack a utility room and the entrance hall is tiny. There is no where for various coats, boots, rucksacks and wet dogs. Other than that, it’s a lovely property.

Upstairs has also undergone new refurbishments including new Velux windows, a new bathroom and new bedroom furniture. == Just a stroll from Grasmere village at the foot of Heron Pike, this much-loved holiday home stands secluded within a large fellside garden, surrounded by mature trees and creating a haven for wildlife. Step inside, and you'll discover a superb venue for gatherings. Light pours into the elegant living space - equipped with such contemporary luxuries as a Smart TV and iPod dock. The bedrooms are all a treat, whether you're snuggled in the spacious eaves or admiring the garden from the ground floor master en-suite. A pretty sun room ensures you'll relish the garden outlook at any time of year perhaps you may also like to read your favourite book, but the gardens themselves are a joy. You'll find many enchanting corners including a patio seating 8 for al-fresco meals, next to a babbling stream and small waterfall. Bliss for you and heaven for kids! == Accommodation in detail Recently renovated to a high standard, Underheron has added that wow factor to every room. The property is newly completed and has light and airy accommodation throughout. Set in a seclude area of Grasmere, Underheron has parking for 2 – 3 cars outside. Entering through the front entrance you will find space in the hallway for muddy boots and walking gear. This then leads into the large, light and open modern kitchen with its high quality appliances and glass ceiling and seating for 4, this makes the perfect social place to share breakfast. Continue through and you will enter the very spacious and beautifully designed living room and integrated sun room with its bright aspect, dining table to seat 8 and long floor length windows throughout. The extra-large corner sofa centres the room, which is perfect to relax on after a day on the fells whilst cosying up next to the log burner. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms one of which is the Master Kingsize bedroom which has an ensuite and features exclusive access to the rear garden via large patio doors. The other bedroom on this level is the twin bedroom which has the ground floor family bathroom opposite with walk in shower.

Badger, Deers and red squirrels are regularly spotted, so keep a look out! Location Grasmere is a historic village at the very heart of the Lakes, west of Ambleside and north of Coniston and Hawkshead. The village centre has a number of useful shops, market, tea rooms and a select few very good restaurants - including the Good Food Guide listed Jumble Room. Although hugely popular with tourists and walkers, Grasmere remains a relaxed village location with a real air of history. In the village you can explore the legacy of artists who've been inspired by the landscapes around the village - of particular note is the Heaton Cooper Studio. The famous poet William Wordsworth lived in Grasmere while writing some of his most famous poetry. His former home can be visited at Dove Cottage & the Wordsworth Museum, and his family grave is one of the most visited literary shrines in the world. A holiday cottage in Grasmere provides easy access to no end of fabulous Lake District walks. Try the route up to Easedale Tarn in the fells above the village, visit the shores of nearby Rydal Water, or take on Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name but a few!

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family have been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
