    “Round Hill cottage had a really homely feel on a quiet country lane and even though it seemed longer ,it was only a 10 min pleasant walk into the village.”


    The Tea and biscuits was a nice touch for when we arrived. We did notice in the reviews ,that it was suggested that the living room needed updating and we presumed that this had been done . It had not We totally agree the seating and carpet was worn and dated and the rug was worn and black around the edges ( it was disgusting ). In the bathroom we could not understand as there was one half of a curtain covering the whole window , which you had to move backwards and forwards depending which side you were on. Considering we paid over a £1,000.00 for 7 days ,we expected better standards. Such simple solutions .

The property

If you're looking for a quintessential Lake District country cottage, with fabulous views and a quaint Lakeland village nearby, Roundhill Cottage is a must. This pretty retreat is found on the country lane leading from Grasmere village to Easedale Tarn, watched over by Helm Crag's famous 'Lion & Lamb' and enjoying fabulous views in every direction. Despite the secluded feel, Grasmere village centre is only a short stroll away from your door - plenty to tempt you by day and by night. Step inside the cottage and you'll find no contemporary flashiness; but the warm and homely atmosphere of a traditional Lakeland cottage. Westmorland slate floors and electric stove, country kitchen and cosy bedrooms. == Accommodation in detail Enter to the rear of this lakeland cottage into the well-equipped traditional kitchen/dining room with Westmorland slate floor and views over the garden to the Grasmere Valley.

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.

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.
