The property

Situated in a quiet courtyard, Low Croft Cottage is an excellent choice for visitors with a love of history and the arts.

Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage is close by, as are Grasmere’s famous galleries, tearooms and churchyard.

The area is well known for its wonderful walks, both leisurely and challenging, the welcoming local pubs and outstanding views over Rydall Water and Loughrigg. The cottage itself is charming.

Through sensitive renovation it has retained its original character with exposed beams and intriguing angled ceilings.

On the ground floor is a spacious utility area with plenty of room for bikes, boots and other equipment.

The first floor is home to a very pretty sitting room with large television and storage heaters, while the kitchen is a real wow.

Its wooden floor, modern units and comprehensive range of equipment make food preparation a joy.

A farmhouse table is close by, perfectly lending itself to the enjoyment of a hearty cooked breakfast or long lazy brunch.

The two charming bedrooms are on the second floor of the property, one a double room and one a generous twin.

Both are attractively presented and share the modern, bright bathroom with shower over the bath.

This superbly located holiday home-from-home is ideal for two couples or family.

Walks galore, cultural Grasmere on the doorstep and the lively village of Ambleside just a short drive away.

About the location


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.
