The property

Set in the heart of Grasmere, a beautiful village on the banks of the River Rothay in Cumbria, rests the lovely, three-bedroom holiday home of Holly Cottage. With private parking for three cars, a private furnished patio, and a superb location close to nearby shops, pubs, restaurants, and Grasmere Lake, this charming property serves as an idyllic base for a family or group of six friends looking for a relaxing, self-catered escape within the magnificent Lake District National Park. Park up outside your new home-from-home, taking a moment to breathe in your tranquil new surroundings. Once content, head inside to discover a collection of well-appointed living spaces, including a fully-equipped, shaker-style kitchen filled with all the appliances required to rustle up delicious home-cooked dinners, and a well-presented living/dining room, where you and your loved ones can gather to savour your meals before you indulge in a movie marathon on the Smart TV by the comforting embrace of a woodburning stove. When the sun is shining, feel free to delight with some alfresco dining outside on the patio, raising a glass of your favourite beverage to toast your getaway. When the sun sets, head to either the bath or shower room to wash away the stresses of the day, before you hunker down to catch a well-earned rest in one of the three inviting bedrooms, consisting of two doubles and a twin. After savouring your morning coffee whilst gazing out upon the rolling countryside, head out on foot to explore what's on offer in your local area. A brief stroll will take you into the centre of Grasmere, where you can re-stock homely essentials at the Co-op Food – Grasmere, pick up some baked treats from the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, enjoy a spot of tea at Baldry's Grasmere, or indulge in a hearty pub lunch at The Good Sport. You can also pay a visit to Faeryland Grasmere, which lies on the edge of the eponymous lake, as well as the National Trust Allan Bank and Grasmere, a historic villa and former home to William Wordsworth. Further afield, outside of Grasmere, you will find countless things to do and see whilst in the Lake District, whether that’s a hike up the peaks of the Great Gable, Helvellyn, or Scafell Pike, soaking in nature at Stickle Tarn or Colwith Force, exploring awe-striking landmarks such as Rydal Cave and Stock Ghyll Force, or even just delight with a peaceful amble through the beautiful greens of the Holehird or Stagshaw Gardens. All of this and so much more is yours to enjoy when you book Holly Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
