The property

Orchard View, nestled in the idyllic Lakeland village of Grasmere, is an inviting, four-bedroom barn conversion. Enjoying character features, a peaceful rear garden and easy access to Lake Windermere, Orchard View is a wonderful base for a family and their canine companion seeking a stay in the Lake District. Upon arrival you are greeted by off-road parking before stepping into the sitting room, complete with traditional flagstone flooring and wooden beams, with ample seating positioned around the alluring woodburner, creating a lovely ambiance for relaxing in the evening. Move into the contemporary kitchen/diner, where the head chef can rustle up something tasty assisted by the electric oven and hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer, while the dishwasher comes in handy for the cleaning up! The first bedroom sits downstairs and enjoys a double bed with its own en-suite shower room and has the bonus of its own entrance from the parking area, handy for those guests with limited access. Upstairs lies three further bedrooms, including a master king-size with TV and en-suite shower room, a double and a twin, each tastefully decorated with period features throughout. Concluding the interior is the family bathroom, offering choice of bath or shower over, so you can best decide how to start your morning. Head out to the rear garden, flanked by trees to offer privacy, where you can enjoy a coffee or your favourite tipple. From the door, head down the lane to reach the centre of Grasmere, where you can experience the hustle and bustle as you explore many independent cafés, bars and restaurants – remember to sample the famous Grasmere Ginger Bread! Remember to pack your walking boots as the local area is filled with scenic trails, including Alcock Tarn and the great Helm Crag, or just a stroll down to Grasmere Lake or across White Moss common for the less adventurous. Head to Windermere to uncover further Lakeland delights, including the Brockhole Visitor Centre with its archery, clay shooting and mini golf activities, or wander around the picturesque streets of Ambleside and Keswick, offering their own Lakeland charm at every corner. Choose Orchard View and experience the best of the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
