  • Mrs Briggs

    “Only thing I would say is that the hot water Is not adequate enough to be able to run a bath which I was disappointed about.”

    - Mrs Briggs, September 2020

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry if you had an issue with the hot water, we would have loved the opportunity to have rectified this for you during your stay. We have had an electrician round to the property to look into the hot water who has now set it to be on 60 degrees at all times. Thank you again for your valuable feedback. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Grasmere within 1 mile.

A perfect romantic retreat, this ground floor apartment within a mile of Grasmere is one of nine properties set in a former gentleman's residence, above the village and nestling on the slopes of Rydal Fell, with extensive shared grounds overlooking Grasmere Lake, an ideal place to enjoy the stunning scenery and amazing sunsets.

Thoughtfully appointed throughout to provide spacious contemporary accommodation, this self-catering apartment is perfect for anyone wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

With an abundance of wildlife to be spotted, including birds, badgers, red squirrels and deer, this really is an idyllic haven from which to enjoy this beautiful part of the Lake District.

With stunning walks from the door including the well-known Coffin Trail around Grasmere and Rydal Water, you are ideally placed for the more ambitious Fairfield Horseshoe, while Grasmere village is just a short walk and has a wealth of shops, cafés, galleries and pubs, as well as the famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop.

A walk around Grasmere Lake is a must, with the beautiful scenery inspiring poets and artists for hundreds of years.

With such an amazing landscape to enjoy there is very little reason to get in the car, but if you do, just a short drive away is the bustling town of Ambleside, set on the shores of Lake Windermere.

From Ambleside you can travel on to the pretty Lakeland villages of Hawkshead, Elterwater and Chapel Stile.

This apartment makes a perfect escape at any time of the year.

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.
