Just a stone’s throw from William Wordsworth’s Grasmere home, this enchanting little cottage provides a romantic 4 star Lake District retreat with a character all of its own. Inside the scene is set for cosy evenings in, with subtle lighting and comfy furnishings around a traditional woodburning stove. You’ll also find an adorable ‘sitting out spot’ for pre-dinner drinks or morning coffee al-fresco.
The location is also ideal; peacefully on the edge of Grasmere village with breathtaking views to the famous Lakeland Fells, yet only a stroll from tempting tearooms, handy shops, restaurants and pubs in the village centre.
Poet's Corner is also only a few minutes away from the shores of Grasmere lake.
