    “Exploring the area close to Grasmere which the location of the property made it easy for us to do.”

    It was lovely being such a short walk to shops, restaurants etc. The view from the cottage was as stunning as advertised!

The property

In a dreamy setting alongside the River Rothay close to Grasmere village, this unique split level cottage is flooded with light and fantastic views. Formerly within the grounds of an impressive country house, the cottage has been tastefully extended and modernised to create a superb holiday home. Enormous windows make the most of the scenic location and the galleried living/dining room makes a fantastic space for entertaining; relax and gaze out to Stone Arthur and the Fairfield Horseshoe. Suitable for couples, a family or friends. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars. An open entrance porch leads to the kitchen, which is well-equipped with a step down to the living and dining area. The living and dining room has a high ceiling with old oak beams, split level gallery and skylight, and large windows looking out to Stone Arthur and the Fairfield Range. A short flight of stairs leads to a twin room and house bathroom along with double bedroom with en-suite. Outside you'll find a furnished patio and garden for scenic meals al-fresco. 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 Jumble Room which has been listed in the BBC Good Food Guide. 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. 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. A holiday cottage in Grasmere provides easy access to no end of fabulous Lake District walks. Try the route up to Easedale Tarn in the fells above the village, visit the shores of nearby Rydal Water, or take on Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name but a few!

About the location

GRASMERE

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.
