    “We just love the Lake District and Grasmere in particular.”

    Upper Longsyke was the best property we have ever stayed in when visiting the Lakes and added to the quality of our holiday experience.

The property

This ravishing boutique Lakeland residence combines contemporary luxury with cosy styling set only a few minutes stroll away from the absolute heart of picturesque Grasmere village centre- what a breathtaking setting and with 360 glorious views of the stunning surrounding scenery. Soaking up the very best of both worlds; strolling distance from bustling Grasmere and the shores of the lake, yet in a peaceful spot perfect for exploring straight from your doorstep. The stylish finish to this luxurious property has to be seen to be fully appreciated and the layout is very sociable making Upper Longsyke always a first choice. Step inside and be transported to the classy and contemporary interior; shades of grey mix elegantly with sumptuous furnishing and luxurious bathrooms; everything feels generous including the wonderful kitchen which is lavishly equipped. A magical property and perfect at every time of the Lakeland year. Accommodation in detail A stylish ground floor entrance to this contemporary boutique residence with space for walking gear and a 'pew with a view' cascading light through the intricate glass throughout the property. Straight up the stairs to the accommodation beginning on the first floor; sumptuous living room, perfect for relaxing by the warming woodburner and gazing at the views; a stunning kitchen / diner with lots of sociable space and everything you would need including breathtaking views. On this level is a twin bedroom (that can be made as super king size on request) also with stunning views and complete with another woodburner. There is a luxurious monsoon shower room also on this level and the intricate sections of glass walkway take you to the top floor where the views are even better. On this level are two seductive king size bedrooms, each with luxurious en-suite facilities complete with designer roll top baths and separate walk in rain showers - what a great place to unwind after a day on the mountains; each bedroom also has a walk in dressing room. Outside, are your private parking spaces and an enclosed patio garden (which is to the side of the property) with furniture, perfect for a bit of al-fresco living on sunny days. This property also offers a full Sky Q TV package in the living room & bedrooms, with access to Netflix with your own account. We now welcome your furry friend to stay at Upper Longsyke, so we provide a dog towel to keep them clean and dry after their Lakeland walks. We also provide doggy treats, food & water bowls and doggy waste bags. Please bring their own bed as this is not provided. 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 - 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 small supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide-listed Jumble Room as 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.
