The location is perfect, on the first floor of a traditional Lakeland slate building, between the pretty River Rothay and the bustling village green with wonderful fell views from every room. Grasmere is a large village, in the centre of the Lake District, with a vivid literary history including the former homes of William Wordsworth and his family in Dove Cottage and Alan Bank along with their final resting place at St Oswald’s Church.
Grasmere is a paradise for walkers being surrounded by some of the Lake District’s most dramatic and beautiful scenery. There are walks for all abilities from the front door from the rigours of the Fairfield Horseshoe, Helm Crag and Silver How to low level walks to Ambleside along the coffin trail or to the Lake in Grasmere and Rydal Water.
The school where the Wordsworth family taught is now home to the mouth-watering Grasmere Gingerbread. Eateries abound, with an abundance of cafes, pubs and restaurants providing everything from sumptuous afternoon teas to fine dining. There is a superb garden centre and some special craft shops and galleries including the Heaton Cooper Studio renowned for capturing the magnificent scenery, in watercolour.
As well as clusters of quaint houses around the 14th-century church and village green, Grasmere has a thriving community with a quirky, fun side. It boasts a newsagent selling England’s largest collection of jigsaws, a restaurant with cow-themed decor and a shop where the merchandise features the endearing Lakeland Herdwick sheep, championed by Beatrix Potter.
