This quaint cottage features exposed granite stone walls, a fireplace with a wood-burning stove, and exposed beams; it can accommodate up to four guests in two bedrooms, making it an ideal base for friends or couples seeking a romantic getaway in the Lake District. After exploring the surrounding countryside, relax on the plush sofas in the living room while watching the Smart TV and listening to the woodburning stove crackle in the background.

Be sure to get some sleep prior to another day of fun in the Lakes. Little How is an idyllic location for a getaway in Cumbria.

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.
