A stone’s throw from the centre of Grasmere, this beautifully renovated Lakeland cottage is situated in a quiet mews courtyard setting and is far from just a convenient bolt hole. With characterful exposed beams and roof angles which have been retained and only add to the charm of the place – somewhere to relax, unwind, and embrace the pace and beauty of this world-renowned area.
Take advantage of your private parking - you can explore wonderful walks, spell-binding arts history, cosy Lakeland pubs and friendly village life without even using your car.
Accommodation in detail

At the very heart of the Lake District National Park, Grasmere is an adorable Lakeland village with ample facilities for self-catering breaks - including some excellent pubs and restaurants. It's full of Lake District charm and character and also steeped with artistic history; William Wordsworth lived here in Dove Cottage (open to the public) during one of his most productive periods as a poet. Local painters have also long been inspired, and several watercolour galleries exhibit in the village including the renowned Heaton Cooper Studio.
This fascinating village is a great place to base your self-catering holiday. On lazier days, explore the quaint village centre or take a peaceful riverside walk. Nearby Rydal Water is a particular joy.
If you're looking to hit the fells and explore secluded tarns, you're in the right place. A manageable hike leads up to Easedale Tarn, amidst fells above the village. Serious walkers might attempt Fairfield, Silver How, Helm Crag and Loughrigg; all within easy reach. A starting point for Helvellyn is only a short drive up the road at Thirlmere.
