Description

Nestling in the very heart of romantic Grasmere this beautifully furnished and contemporary cottage is ideal for those wishing to sample wonderful walking from the doorstep and traditional Lakeland village life. Returning visitors to Grasmere will be familiar with walks to Silver Howe, Stone Arthur and Helm Crag whilst first time holiday makers will marvel at the spectacular scenery to be had whilst walking around Grasmere Lake itself. Blessed with its own off road parking space, guests may park up and never need to use the car again for the week as the village caters well for the self catering guests and has some excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants to sample during your stay but do save some room for the world famous Grasmere Gingerbread. The Old Gallery is delightfully presented and ticks all the boxes in terms of what you would expect of a traditional cottage; exposed beams, flagged floors and a woodburning stove all set the scene in this lovely accommodation, cleverly married with a 21st Century theme to create a place to relax, unwind and share precious time together.

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.
