    “Super, gorgeous, smashing..great!”

    “This is a lovely cottage placed right in the very heart of Grasmere.” ...

    “This is a lovely cottage placed right in the very heart of Grasmere.” The owner has renovated Poppy's Cottage to the highest spec,..there is everything you could possibly need and then some. Tastefully decorated throughout and having the benefit of 2 bathrooms ( a large family with deep roll top bath and an en suite). The cottage is very comfortable and has only just been renovated and recently put on the holiday market with Sykes Cottages, so is all shiny and new and far superior to some cottages we have experienced. The TV is also a proper 4k large unit, so we got our evening 'strictly takes 2' fix with Zoe in style. We also had pretty good weather too, not bad for October!. The annex houses the washer/dryer and a thoughtfully placed panel heater and hooks are provided to dry your wet walking gear. There are numerous great walks right from the door and we barely used the car all week....parking was no issue due to the parking permit allowing us to park the car 24/7 in a nearby car park about 100 yards away, you are allowed to unload right outside the door too which is useful. We turned up on the first Friday of the month which is market day, but the stall holders helped us gain access and then we had some nice produce to buy right on the doorstep!. There are some pretty good places to eat in the village, a surprise to us was Tweedies bar and restaurant which served up some lovely grub at a reasonable price. Sykes Cottages who handle this property were superb from start to finish, with very helpful and friendly staff making this a lovely holiday experience. We would highly recommend both Sykes and this super duper Cottage.

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.
