  • “Wonderful cottage close to Grasmere village.”

    The views are fantastic from the cottage with lots of walks available from the cottage. The property retains a quaint feel to it. Large kitchen with all mod cons and ample space in other rooms. We had a great week there - if we were being very picky suggest the upstairs room ceiling may have small amount of damp from the roof guttering and whilst 3 small cars can be parked easily enough it would be difficult to park 3 larger cars but overall we loved our stay there.

The property

This characterful country cottage with exposed beams overlooks the Vale of Grasmere towards Silver Howe and Helm Crag.

Set over three floors, Hollens Cottage is a true walkers paradise, with a host of walks straight from the door, this cottage provides high quality accommodation to family and friends.

Enter on the ground floor where the hall leads into the sitting room with beamed ceiling and spectacular views of the famous ‘Lion and Lamb’.

Continue onto the country kitchen with dining area and French doors onto the private patio area, a peaceful spot for dining al fresco.

Also, on the ground floor is the master king-size bedroom and modern bathroom.

Downstairs to the lower ground level is one comfortable double bedroom, shower room and access to the rear garden that contains a utility room for storing muddy walking boots and bikes.

Upstairs to the first floor are the twin bedroom and single bedroom, plus cloakroom with WC.

Grasmere is renowned for its rural charms, its links with the famous poet William Wordsworth and of course Sarah Nelson’s Grasmere Gingerbread.

Visit Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage on the outskirts of the village, and then take a stroll to the centre of the village where he is laid to rest with other members of the Wordsworth family.

Grasmere itself is a charming village to spend a holiday in the Lakes, there are art galleries to peruse, cafes to sample and many a hike to be completed.

This central location is perfect for exploring some of the hidden gems on offer, take a walk to Rydal Caves just 2.2 miles from the centre of the village or for serious walkers the starting point for Helvellyn is only a short drive away in Thirlmere.

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family have been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
