Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Grasmere

Choose from one of our Grasmere Cottages and put yourself in the heart of idyllic Lake District scenery, life and relaxation! At the centre of the Lake District, sits the spectacular village of Grasmere. Steeped in history, settled on the banks of Grasmere Lake and offering some of the best traditional Lakeland holiday cottage accommodation in the area. Best associated with the Lakes poets, in particular its 14 year resident, the poet William Wordsworth. He once described the village as the “loveliest spot that man hath ever found.”

Grasmere sits on the banks of the River Rothay and is overlooked by the popular Lakeland fell of Helm Crag. It also known as the Lion and the Lamb or Lady at the Piano, getting their nickname from the rock formations at its summit, depending on which side you view it from.

Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy moved to Dove Cottage, in Grasmere, in 1799. Here they stayed until 1808 when they moved to Allan Bank. (Both of which are now popular tourist attractions). They finally moved to nearby Rydal Mount in 1813.

William and his wife Mary are buried at the local St Oswalds Church. There is a simple tombstone marking their final resting place on the banks of the Rothay.

The land between St Oswalds and the river is now Wordsworth Daffodil Garden. It’s name inspired by one of the poet’s most famous pieces of work. Here you can have an engraved stone, set in the path to commemorate your visit or as a remembrance to a loved one.

The small building next to the church is the former village school. Mary, William and Dorothy all taught in the 19th century. The school was open for 220 years from 1630AD. But it is now home to the famous Grasmere gingerbread – Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop.

Other historical attractions in Grasmere include, Church Stile, a 17th century cottage now owned by the National Trust and the 18th century, Robert Newton’s Inn. It was here that Wordsworth, his brother John and Wordsworth’s good friend Coleridge stayed, during their 1797 tour of the Lake District.

Grasmere out and about

Lakelovers holiday cottages in Grasmere are ideally located and make getting out and about in the Grasmere area easy. And there is so much to do in this delightful part of the Lake District.
Rowing boats are available seven days a week, from March to November, a fond past time of William and Dorothy. They would row to the island, now privately owned, to picnic. It is also possible to walk around Grasmere Lake, which is a great experience on a spring or summers day.

Each year on August 5th, the village celebrates St Oswalds Day and takes part in the Rushbearing Festival. This dates back to the days when the villagers would cover the church floor with rushes for warmth and cleanliness. August also includes the famous Grasmere Sports Day; one of the oldest and most popular traditions in the Lakes.

Annually from July to September the village hall host the Lake Artists Society summer exhibition, displaying some 300 exhibits from local artists. They also exhibit each year at Easter.
