    “A really nice cottage.”

    Five of us stayed here and there was plenty of room for all of us. We found the cottage to have everything we needed and was very cosy and comfortable. There was a washer/dryer which we found useful and central heating as well as all you need in the kitchen. There were even board games provided. You do need to take your own towels and toilet roll. ...

    Five of us stayed here and there was plenty of room for all of us. We found the cottage to have everything we needed and was very cosy and comfortable. There was a washer/dryer which we found useful and central heating as well as all you need in the kitchen. There were even board games provided. You do need to take your own towels and toilet roll. It was convenient for everything in Grasmere and many walks started nearby. It was very close to the car park for which we were given one permit and we didn't find it too expensive to park the second car. A couple of small things to mention are that the bathroom blind didn't work and as it is on the ground floor at the front of the house that was a bit tricky. Also one of the walls in the living room was very damp. There was some noise until the restaurant next door had closed but after that it was fine. We all enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again if in Grasmere.

The property

Within a short walking distance to the heart of Grasmere village, the traditional 19th century Rowan Cottage overlooks the fells of Silver How and Helm Crag. With enough space to sleep up to six people, it has been tastefully furnished with comfort in mind and features everything necessary for a family holiday to the Lakes. On entry through this property’s charming entrance hallway, you are lead to three bedrooms and a house bathroom, with the master bedroom boasting a feature Victorian fireplace and the second double bedroom including an en-suite.

On the first floor, you will find a diner kitchen that is equipped with everything you’ll need for a hearty meal and family catch-up.

It also features a washing machine, giving everyone the opportunity to clean mucky clothes after exploring the outdoors.

A first-floor cottage lounge with a rustic living flame gas fire makes for the perfect place to unwind and catch up on TV, whilst its characterful window seat and bay window provides a peaceful reading nook.

You can also find an additional WC on this floor, which is great for cutting down on bathroom queues. Rowan Cottage doesn’t have a garden but is tucked away with rolling hills, fields to play in and a local pub just on its doorstep. Perhaps most famous for being William Wordsworth’s home and inspiration for much of his poetry, Grasmere is adored by walkers and cyclists for its varied inclines and picturesque scenes.

It is also home to the world-famous gingerbread shop, Michelin guide-recommended restaurants, tea rooms and cafes as well as quaint, local shops and galleries. Seated at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, you can explore the waters or take a hike across hills and fells in every direction from Grasmere.

You can also take a short trip to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction in Bowness-on-Windermere, or see her home at Hill Top in Hawkshead.

Rowan Cottage is an ideal spot to explore Grasmere and the Lake District any time of year, offering a serene place to rest and unwind in after exploring the outdo

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.
