  • Ian

    “Very nice cottage right in the centre of Grasmere, clean and comfortable, found the drying room at the bottom of the stairs extremely useful, and having a private parking space a few yards from the door was perfect.”

    Hope to return.

    Thank you Ian for your favourable comments. I am pleased you enjoyed your week at Low Croft and look forward to having you to stay with us again. The storage and drying room with washer/dryer is very useful especially if the weather is inclement. Low Croft with a private parking space is in a quiet courtyard overlooking the village green. All walks begin form the doorstep. The bus stop to Ambleside and Keswick is by the green. Very useful especially with the £2 fare. You can park at the beginning of your stay and not use you car again. Property Owner

The property

A stone's throw from the centre of Grasmere, this beautifully renovated Lakeland cottage is situated in a quiet mews courtyard setting and is far from just a convenient bolt hole. With characterful exposed beams and roof angles which have been retained and only add to the charm of the place - somewhere to relax, unwind, and embrace the pace and beauty of this world-renowned area. Take advantage of your private parking - you can explore wonderful walks, spell-binding arts history, cosy Lakeland pubs and friendly village life without even using your car. == Accommodation in detail Private parking in the allocated space outside in the courtyard. Enter to spacious utility area - ideal for those with valuable walking equipment or bicycles. Entrance lobby leads upstairs to the first floor living area: this raised open plan living area offers a comfortable sitting area, dining area and well-equipped kitchen. Second floor: two pleasant cottage bedrooms (one double bedroom and one twin bedroom). A modern, sky-lit bathroom with shower over bath. Location At the very heart of the Lake District National Park, Grasmere is an adorable Lakeland village with ample facilities for self-catering breaks - including some excellent pubs and restaurants. It's full of Lake District charm and character and also steeped with artistic history; William Wordsworth lived here in Dove Cottage (open to the public) during one of his most productive periods as a poet. Local painters have also long been inspired, and several watercolour galleries exhibit in the village including the renowned Heaton Cooper Studio. This fascinating village is a great place to base your self-catering holiday. On lazier days, explore the quaint village centre or take a peaceful riverside walk. Nearby Rydal Water is a particular joy. If you're looking to hit the fells and explore secluded tarns, you're in the right place. A manageable hike leads up to Easedale Tarn, amidst fells above the village. Serious walkers might attempt Fairfield, Silver How, Helm Crag and Loughrigg; all within easy reach. A starting point for Helvellyn is only a short drive up the road at Thirlmere.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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 has 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. 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.
