If you’re looking for an enchanting, perhaps romantic Lakeland retreat, Acorn Cottage is just that. A surprisingly spacious timber-built cottage, sheltered from the bustle of the village and perched on a rocky ledge to give fabulous views across the valley. Fall in love with the pretty traditional decor; wood beams, stable door, local-stone fireplace… warm in winter and bliss in summer as you take to the patio to admire the view across to Heron Pike.

Grasmere lies right at the heart of the Lake District National Park, and is renowned for the scenic surroundings that inspired William Wordsworth to write his best-loved poetry. From your quaint country retreat, stroll to the lively village centre, stock up at the supermarket, admire art galleries and relax in excellent restaurants and cafes. Don your boots and explore a range of short walking routes that surround Grasmere and Rydal Water. Short drives take you to Easedale Tarn or the start-point of an ascent of Helvellyn. Grasmere's central location makes Acorn Cottage an ideal base for exploring the very best of the Lake District.
