Perfect location in the heart of Grasmere with views of the surrounding fells. The owners have thought of everything and keep their beautiful home maintained to a very high standard, with lots of thoughtful touches, that were very much appreciated by us!

“Rowan st Grasmere was perfect ( wish it was my house!”
). Really tastefully decorated and organised with great thought as to what anyone staying may need. Amazing views over fields and fells with the advantage of being able to pop into Grasmere on foot ( over great little bridge, past the sheep) in few minutes if you needed anything or for pubs/cafes/restaurants. Added advantage of being able to hike directly from village ( Easedale Tarn, Heron Tarn, Lion &Lamb). Hope it doesn't get booked up too quickly as am just about to start looking ar dates for next time! Thank you for a lovely stay in the beautiful Lake District.- Mrs Cameron,
