Accommodation in detail
A stylish ground floor entrance to this contemporary boutique residence with space for walking gear and a 'pew with a view' cascading light through the intricate glass throughout the property. Straight up the stairs to the accommodation beginning on the first floor; sumptuous living room, perfect for relaxing by the warming woodburner and gazing at the views; a stunning kitchen / diner with lots of sociable space and everything you would need including breathtaking views. On this level is a twin bedroom also with stunning views and complete with another woodburner. There is a luxurious monsoon shower room also on this level and the intricate sections of glass walkway take you to the top floor where the views are even better. On this level are two seductive king size bedrooms, each with luxurious en-suite facilities complete with designer roll top baths and separate walk in rain showers - what a great place to unwind after a day on the mountains; each bedroom also has a walk in dressing room. Outside, are your private parking spaces and an enclosed patio garden with furniture, perfect for a bit of al-fresco living on sunny days.
Nestled in the very heart of the Lakes, Grasmere is a lovely place for a romantic break in peaceful surroundings. With the views beginning at home, you'll be tempted to take on such famous Lake District walks as Silver How, Lang How and Helm Crag. Rising very close to the property is the impressive 'Fairfield Horseshoe' - keen walkers will be spoilt for choice.
But a holiday property in Grasmere isn't just a dream for walkers. This historic Lake District village is famed for its connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived in the village at Dove Cottage - open to the public as part of the Wordsworth Museum. Artists will enjoy browsing several watercolour galleries in Grasmere, particularly the Heaton Cooper Studio which displays the Cooper family's famous work as well as that of inspired local artists.
The village centre has all the facilities you'll need during your self-catering holiday in the heart of the Lakes. From local shops and small supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide-listed Jumble Room as a treat for a special occasion. For touring by car or exploring the Lakes, the A591 leads you effortlessly south past Rydal Water to Ambleside on the northern shore of Lake Windermere, or north to Keswick and Derwent Water. Also easily found to your south are the breathtaking Langdale Valley and the Lake District's third largest lake, Coniston.
