This exceptional Grasmere residence boasts some of the most spectacular Lake District scenery. It provides a peaceful retreat whether you wish to walk the Fairfield Horseshoe, photograph the spectacular waterfalls or simply escape from the crowds.
All the magic of a secluded rural Lake District holiday cottage, at the very heart of the Lakes and only a short walk away from the centre of Grasmere. Slightly north of Ambleside, Grasmere is a picturesque village next to a small lake of the same name. The spectacular area is hugely popular with walkers for its backdrop of tempting fells, with routes such as Helm Crag and Loughrigg Fell promising rewarding views over the lake below.
Grasmere is also famous for its connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived in the village at Dove Cottage (now open to the public as part of the Wordsworth Museum) and declared Grasmere as 'one of the loveliest spots that man has ever found'.
The inspirational nature of the place is further proven by a number of watercolour and artists' galleries in the village, including the Heaton Cooper Studio displaying the work of the talented Cooper family.
In the village, you'll find everything you need during your self-catering holiday in the Lake District. From supermarket to market square, pretty tea rooms to restaurants such as the Good Food Guide-listed Jumble Room, and a number of excellent country pubs both in the village and in the surrounding area.
