    “We had a lovely holiday and Rowanberry Cottage.”

    The cottage is so well placed in the heart of Grasmere and yet surrounded by countryside and exceptionally quiet. The cottage is well equipped and has a beautiful garden with lovely views across the fells.

The property

A contemporary, detached Lakeland retreat with a peaceful south-facing garden, located just a short level stroll from the centre of Grasmere yet surrounded by lush green countryside. Rowanberry Cottage is modern and in a very quiet location with an incredibly relaxed atmosphere. It is one of our most popular holiday homes and a great place to escape to! The strategically positioned picture windows enable you to take full advantage of the amazing views. The patio doors open onto a charming enclosed patio, where many lazy days can be spent. One of the king-sized beds can be made up as a twin. Rowanberry Cottage would make a perfect holiday retreat for anyone wishing to explore the central Lake District. == Accommodation in detail Entrance hall with cloakroom / 3rd WC, leading to the spacious dining kitchen.

A holiday cottage in Grasmere provides easy access to no end of famous Lake District walking routes. Stride up to Easedale Tarn in the fells above the village, stroll on the peaceful shores of nearby Rydal Water, or take on Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name but a few! Grasmere village centre has a market square and a number of useful shops, tea rooms and a select few very good restaurants - including the Good Food Guide listed Jumble Room. There are several good pubs in the village and the surrounding area. Although hugely popular with tourists and walkers, Grasmere remains a relaxed village location with a real air of history.

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.
