Just show me Grasmere Cottages

'The loveliest spot that man hath ever found', said William Wordsworth of the picturesque vale of Grasmere. With fells and mountains forming a magnificent backdrop, our Grasmere cottages nestle in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

The popular tourist village of Grasmere is the ideal base to experience the very best of romantic Lakeland, awash with shops, galleries and welcoming eateries. Look out for Sarah Nelson's Original Gingerbread Shop (there's usually a queue outside!) and the Heaton Cooper Studio for local art.

Walks in and around your Grasmere cottage

Start with the lakeside path around the south-western shore of Lake Grasmere. Loughrigg Terrace is a great low level walk, while classic fell walks from the village include Fairfield Horseshoe and Helm Crag. Or enjoy a gentle riverside stroll from Broadgate Meadow to St. Oswald's Church, site of Wordsworth's grave.

Learn more about his life at Dove Cottage featuring guided tours, a small museum and art gallery, and at nearby Rydal Mount & Gardens, where his family lived for 37 years. Do also explore the gardens of Rydal Hall, residence of the influential Le Fleming Family.

Grasmere's associations with Wordsworth and other famous artists and writers inspire every visitor and it makes perfect sense for the village to play host to the annual Lakeland Artists' Society Exhibition. If you're interested, you might like to plan your Grasmere cottage holiday around this event.

Other unique attractions include Taffy Thomas's Storytelling Garden and Barney's Newsbox stocking every kind of jigsaw imaginable!
