    “The house (White Gables) is absolutely beautiful and even better than it appears online.”

    I do like Art Deco. ...

    I do like Art Deco. There was one broken champagne flute (at the back of the cupboard) when we arrived so I left it out on the side when we left and I'm afraid we broke another one while we were there. We really enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to any one but 3 points which would make it even better. 1) Provide a set of normal wine glasses (they are not so easily broken either). 2) Provide a chopping board (we had to go out and buy one). 3) The heating '1 hr Boost' didn't work. It maybe that I was doing something wrong but the only instructions said 'Press the boost button on the central heating control' and the only control we could find was in the hall and, whilst there was no sign saying 'Boost button' there is only one button and when pressed it flashed up 1Hr but the heating didn't come on. But thank you, we had a lovely week. Greg Tagney

The property

White Gables is an attractive Period property just off the absolute heart of Grasmere village centre and what a wonderful find, perfect for soaking up the scenery and relaxing in this superb setting! With a glorious view over the vale of Grasmere, this beautiful property really does have the best of both worlds. Words can't truly describe the magic of this setting, literally a stone's throw from the village centre yet hidden away with delightful garden and panoramic views in all directions - here the mountains appear so close you can almost reach out and touch them. This is true Wordsworth country and White Gables is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts era but more importantly is perfect for sociable gatherings and spending precious time together. The magic will draw you back again and again. Walks abound in every direction, and you'll find White Gables an ideal property to return to at the end of a day. == Accommodation in detail Centrally situated White Gables has private parking for 3 right outside the property. A beautiful entrance to this property and then into the living / dining room with oak flooring, warming open fire set in an original inglenook fireplace, patio doors leading out to the garden with picninc table and bbq area - what a great place to spread out and relax. The kitchen has all you may need plus a separate utility room. On the ground floor is a twin bedroom with separate shower room/wc. Upstairs to the double bedroom with en-suite bathroom complete with corner bath and shower attachment. Outside the gardens are a delight and very private considering how close you are to the centre of the village, however, please do not consider them 'escaping dog proof', so please keep dogs on a lead. Location Nestled in the very heart of the Lakes, Grasmere is a lovely place for a romantic break in peaceful surroundings. With the views beginning at home, you'll be tempted to take on such famous Lake District walks as Silver How, Lang How and Helm Crag. Rising very close to the property is the impressive 'Fairfield Horseshoe' - keen walkers will be spoilt for choice. But a holiday property in Grasmere isn't just a dream for walkers. This historic Lake District village is famed for its connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived in the village at Dove Cottage - now owned by the National Trust and open to the public as part of the Wordsworth Museum. Artists will enjoy browsing several watercolour galleries in Grasmere, particularly the Heaton Cooper Studio which displays the Cooper family's famous work as well as that of inspired local artists. The village centre has all the facilities you'll need during your self-catering holiday in the heart of the Lakes. From local shops and supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide-listed Jumble Room is a treat for a special occasion. For touring by car or exploring the Lakes, the A591 leads you effortlessly south past Rydal Water to Ambleside on the northern shore of Lake Windermere, or north to Keswick and Derwent Water. Also easily found to your south are the breathtaking Langdale Valley and the Lake District's third largest lake, Coniston.

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 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.
