  • "I spent a wonderful weak with my two beagles."

    Accommodation was first class and the location in the village of Grasmere was even better, such a beautiful and intimate place, away from the thronging crowds and traffic. I will be returning for sure.

  • "Lovely cottage in a superb location, with hot tub and own parking."

    But there were several servicing issues that I would not expect in this price bracket. Freezer was so iced up we couldn't open the drawers, to defrost we had to turn off all the sockets as there is no isolator. Seriously bad mould issues in the shower room. Sink drain leaks and no basin provided. No logs supplied, description says there will be some. Dressing table drawer sticks, it is very narrow and the mirror isn't fixed, so very unstable. Front door only latches shut if slammed.

    Thank you for your comments. We take all comments on board. Thank you. Property Owner

    Even the rain didn’t dampen our spirits too much!! (And there was a lot of rain) The sunny afternoons in the garden whilst hopping in and out of the hot tub were glorious.

The property

A hot-tub hideaway for two on Wordsworth's home patch!

Mary's Cottage is sublimely tucked away near the centre of pretty Grasmere village, the poetic and geographical heart of the Lakes.

Fell views from every window, and fully refurbished by the present owners, this little Lakelovers gem also has a luxurious hot-tub in its magical, secluded courtyard garden – what a find for a couple wanting to get away from it all for a romantic break!

With additional touches including a large open shower/wet room with a rain shower, an integrated Sonos sound system installed in the ceiling, granite worktops with a breakfast bar, and Vision blinds on all windows, Mary's Cottage makes a fantastic retreat.

Luxury cottages with hot-tubs in the Lake District don't come much cuter or more idyllically located than this, and Mary's Cottage provides a charmingly intimate space for two of our Lakelovers to enjoy special times together.

High quality finishing throughout complements the classic cottage character, and you couldn't be more pleasantly situated away from the bustle, yet in strolling distance of Grasmere's centre.

Please note although the property is dog friendly; your four legged friends are not permitted in the bedroom or on the sofa to reduce property damage. Your good housekeeping bond could be at risk if these terms are not met.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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 has 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. 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.
