Property code: 92303

This bright and homely cottage is an ideal setting for a quiet escape with your canine companions and three other guests in Cumbria due to its open-plan living space and garden with an old stone wall with views of the distant hills. Enjoy a slice of solitude while surrounded by the nature of the Lake District National Park with dog-walking routes around the bodies of water, through woodland and up to high peaks with panoramic views.

Settle into the neutral-toned lounge/diner with its splash of calming blue tones and plenty of natural light from the large windows. Heat the space by lighting the wood burner while you relax on the plush, soft sofa and armchairs. The wooden dining table provides the perfect place for tucking into a homemade meal with your loved ones while discussing your holiday plans. Green tiles with wooden cabinets create a traditional cottage feel in the kitchen – here, you’ll find everything you need to store and prepare your daily meals. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with garden views and a family walk-in shower room. Upstairs is a king-size bedroom, which can be converted into a twin on request. Outside is a lawned area and seating on the gravel for dining alfresco.

Spend your days exploring the Lake District while based in the village of Grasmere in the heart of the national park. Wander into the centre of the village (0.5 miles) to find the 1630s gingerbread shop with traditional sweet treats, a handful of quaint cafes, a convenience shop and some restaurants. At the base of Grasmere Lake is the River Rothay Grasmere Foot Bridge hiking area, which you can follow to Rydal Cave or Loughrigg Fell (both 2.5 miles).

This is a lovely little cottage in a perfect location for serious fell walking or just strolling.

We always love staying at Swallows Ctge, one of our favourites.

Spent a perfect week at the lovely Swallows Cottage. The house was very well equipped and furnished! We had everything we needed. The garden and patio were very welcome when the sun finally came out. We felt at ease letting our dog out as the garden is very secure and quiet. Parking for 2 cars. The position of the Cottage is great.

Lovely small cottage for a couple and garden area is enclosed - great for our two dogs. Extremely quiet at night for sleeping if you are a light sleeper due to it's location just outside the village (10 min walk).

Swallows Cottage is excellent and a perfect venue for our working and walking break. The cottage was great and we had a lovely stay. It's a perfect location just away from eth centre of Grasmere but everything is an easy walk away.
