  • "Modern cosy apartment in a great location in the middle of Grasmere with very friendly owners who allowed me the use of an electric car charger."

    We will definitely consider staying there again in the future.

  • "We had a lovely week’s holiday in February in the gallery."

    The apartment was lovely and incredibly well furnished with all the amenities. It was both warm and comfortable. The Gallery was an ideal location for exploring Grasmere and the surrounding area. We will definitely return for another stay!

  • "I have left the same message in the guest book."

    The storage heaters are inadequate and by the evening give out a minimum of heat. It was very cold whilst we were in Grasmere. The electric heaters in bathroom and bedroom come on about 5.00pm. Would have liked that to be earlier. Would only go back in the Summer. We wouldn't go away with Sykes again. £40.00 booking fee totally unacceptable..

  • "We returned to the Gallery after a few years break - prices had become a bit more than we were willing to pay."

    However it was great to be back and as warm and comfortable as before. A superb spot to visit the Central Lakes with convenient bus connections in various directions.

    This is our third visit to the Gallery. Perfect location for us - excellent walking from the door. Comfortable and cosy as always.

  • "Wonderful week stay with our little family at The Gallery."

    Perfect location and all the amenities within the apartment that you could possibly need. The new Smart TV was a fab addition too. Lovely touch with the chocolates and wine on arrival.

  • "Fantastically situated and ideal for a couple or family."

    Well-equipped kitchen with everything you need for a long stay - washer/dryer, iron etc. Bathroom has a good shower which is really important after long hikes! Lots of restaurants and good pubs in walking distance as well - we didn't need to drive all week. Smart TV was nice to have on a lazy evening after a big hike. We'll be returning.

  • "Overall we enjoyed our stay."

    We found the apartment very clean, comfortable & spacious. There were a few minor issues as mentioned by previous guests such as broken winding handles on a couple of skylights, TV could do with updating plus the fridge was not very efficient. Apart from this everything was fine & we would certainly consider returning, particularly if these issues were addressed in which case we would give a five star rating.

  • "The apartment was just as pictured, very well laid out, and clean."

    The parking space was a bit tight with our car, but we managed sufficiently. The only minor issue for me was the mattress on the double bed, I just couldn't get comfortable, it was to soft for my liking. However, It did not make the holiday any less enjoyable, and overall, we were very comfortable in the apartment. We would definitely consider booking again.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad that you were able to enjoy your holiday despite the mattress. The owner will see this feedback so will be able to assess the mattress for future bookings. We do hope we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    Trying to use a new-towel as protection isn't very safe (2) Please consider supplying a Smart TV. This is, after all, 2023 not 2003!

  • "Bed in master bedroom and sofa in lounge need replacing."

    Skylights need cleaning, blocking out what light there is. Opening mechanism on skylight in Lounge is missing. Parking is awkward, especially when gallery staff are parked and there are cars parked in front of garages. Response to comments would be appreciated as we would definitely consider the apartment again if we knew these issues were addressed. Guest instruction booklet needs updating to replace the covid instructions Chocolates were a nice touch. Thank you

    Great attention to detail and easy to use. Brilliant location. Nice to have parking out the front of the property. Our car fitted on the driveway but probably worth flagging a larger car might be tight.

Perched at the centre of Grasmere, right above the popular Lakes Art, The Gallery is an attractive apartment offering up the perfect spot from which to enjoy some incredible fell walking, any time of year.

Enamating light through the gorgeous Velux windows that line the striking sloping ceilings, the homely open-plan living space creates a warm and welcoming ambiance where you can rest and recuperate on one of the large fabric sofas as you flick on the sleek HD TV to catch your favourite shows.

Move your way across to the pretty cream kitchen, a quaint yet well-equipped space where you can prepare delicious home-cooked meals for all to enjoy at the attractive wood dining table, throughout your stay.

Venture down the hallway and discover two beautifully-appointed bedrooms including a roomy double decorated with traditional furnishing, and an airy twin boasting plush grey carpets and bright white walls.

Both bedrooms are served by a sophisticated shower room with chic wall-to-floor tiling and a commodious walk-in shower, great for grabbing a quick morning rinse before setting about your day.

Make the most of your stunning surroundings with breath-taking strolls along White Moss Walks, or embarking on thrilling hikes up to the peaks of Red Screes and Fairfield Peak.

See the enchanting Rydal Cave or spot the beautiful waters of Skelwith and Stock Ghyll Force as you wander the Grasmere Waterfall Walkways.

Tour the brilliant museums of Wordsworth Grasmere and The Ruskin, or visit the grand former homes of Brantwood, Hill Top and Rydal Mount & Gardens.

Enjoy a romantic trip on Coniston Water with the National Trust owned Steam Yatch Gondola or head on over to the town of Bowness-on-Windermere where you can delight in a cruise along the vast Lake Windermere and visit The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, before grabbing dinner and drinks in one of the many bustling bars and restaurants.

Those travelling with children should be sure to spend a day at Treetop Lake District or the wonderful Lakeland Wildlife Oasis, just a pleasant drive away.

Upon your return to the cottage, be sure to stop off in one of the many local supermarkets for some tasty ingredients ahead of a relaxing yet entertaining evening indoors.

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.
