The property

"This pretty retreat is found on the country lane leading from Grasmere village to Easedale Tarn, watched over by Helm Crag's famous 'Lion & Lamb' and enjoying fabulous views in every direction.

A homely, traditional atmosphere awaits as you enter to the rear of the cottage into the well-equipped traditional kitchen/dining room with Westmorland slate floor and views over the garden to the Grasmere Valley.

Cosy lounge with an electric stove set in Lakeland slate fireplace, and views towards Helm Crag and the surrounding fells.

Upstairs to the double bedroom and twin bedroom, with fell and woodland views.

Large house bathroom with shower over bath.

Rear parking for two cars and is also enclosed.

There is a bench on the patio which looks over the Grasmere Valley and a lockable outhouse ideal to store bikes or kayaks.

Grasmere is a historic village at the very heart of the Lakes, west of Ambleside and north of Coniston and Hawkshead.

The village centre has a number of useful shops, market, tea rooms and a select few very good restaurants - including the Jumble Room which has been listed in the BBC Good Food Guide.

The famous poet William Wordsworth lived in Grasmere while writing some of his most famous poetry.

His former home can be visited at Dove Cottage & the Wordsworth Museum, and his family grave is one of the most visited literary shrines in the world.

Although hugely popular with tourists and walkers, Grasmere remains a relaxed village location with a real air of history.

In the village you can explore the legacy of artists who've been inspired by the landscapes around the village - of particular note is the Heaton Cooper Studio.

A holiday cottage in Grasmere provides easy access to no end of fabulous Lake District walks.

Try the route up to Easedale Tarn in the fells above the village, visit the shores of nearby Rydal Water, or take on Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name but a few!

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.
