Description

No 9 Fir Garth is delightfully situated in the renowned Great Langdale valley, in the heart of the Lake District just 3 miles from Grasmere and 5 miles from Ambleside. With a raised position, the cottage has wonderful views across the valley towards Lingmoor Fell. The cottage benefits from complimentary membership of the Langdale Spa and Country Club with its large heated pool, exercise studio, sauna and bar/restaurant just 20 minutes walk away. The Chapel Stile village shop, Brambles Cafe and Wainwrights Inn are all a few minutes walk away. The cottage is a superb centre for walking the high fells such as the Langdale Pikes, Crinkle Crags, Bow Fell and Lingmoor. There are also many low level walks from the cottage which could take in well known hostelries such as The Old Dungeon Ghyll Inn, Sticklebarn Tavern and the Britannia Inn, Elterwater. A modern cottage, it is compact, well planned and equipped, perhaps best suited for two adults and two children. This is a great base for a couple or family in one of the best locations of The Lake District.

About the local area

Grasmere is a charming village in the heart of the Lake District National Park, situated in a valley surrounded by the lush green slopes of the Lakeland hills. Lovely old cottages and houses built of the local blue-green slate sit along side the art galleries and shops that line the twisty streets of the village.

Once home to the famous poet William Wordsworth visitors can see his two former homes - Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount and Gardens. At the centre of the village is St. Oswald's Church which contains the Wordsworth family graves.

A short distance to the west is the village of Chapel Stile at the entrance to the spectacular Langdale Valley with superb scenery all around. Langdale offers a variety of fell and low level walks making it a good base for walkers of all abilities.
