Exuding rustic charm and perfect for families or couples, return to this cottage to relax in front of the roaring wood burner after a day out on the fells.
Dating back to the 1800s, this delightful slate-fronted cottage has been beautifully and sensitively restored throughout using traditional materials and luxury fixtures and fittings. It oozes rustic charm, with slate flag floors, oak latch doors, sash windows and cast iron radiators. A real gem of a Lake District cottage! With a spacious open-plan living space, a gorgeous modern kitchen and two charming double bedrooms, both en-suite, the house is well suited to two couples. The comfy sofas with matching woollen throws and roaring wood burner will be just the tonic after a day out on the fells. The cottage has the added advantage of off-road parking for one car, which is a rarity in the centre of Grasmere.
Situated on a quiet lane right in the centre of the pretty village of Grasmere, it is superbly convenient to all local amenities. Grasmere is an idyllic Lake District village with a stunning mountain backdrop and lots to explore. There are a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants and lots of charming little gift shops, interesting art galleries and the world-famous Grasmere Gingerbread Shop.
Nestled right in the heart of the Lake District it offers some fantastic walking opportunities. From the doorstep of the cottage there is plenty to offer the casual walker, whilst also keeping the more serious hiker fully entertained. From strolls along the coffin route to Ambleside to full-day hikes around the Fairfield Horseshoe, there is something for everyone. A short meander out of the village brings you to Faeryland on the shores of Grasmere where you can hire rowing boats or simply sit back and drink in the views whilst sampling their tea and cakes.
Entry via the front door leads into the charming open-plan lounge. There is useful coat storage at the front door for jackets and outdoor gear. A wood burner keeps the lounge warm and the comfy sofas and smart TV make it the prefect spot to relax after a long day on the fells. A selection of guidebooks, board games and jigsaw puzzles are available for use during your stay. The dining area has a wooden table and chairs for four people.
