Beautiful manor house set in the stunning surroundings of Grasmere with spectacular lake views and amazing scenery to enjoy in this wonderful location.

Gaze out across the water from this splendid holiday home in the Lake District. Set within a wing of a former grand country home, the exceptional retreat benefits from commanding views thanks to its enviable position in Grasmere. The four-bedroom property sleeps eight guests and a dog, and could be perfect for two families or even a group of friends. Enjoy your proximity to the shops and eateries of Grasmere, as well as those of Ambleside, about 4.5 miles away. Spend days out on the shores of Lake Windermere, about 5 miles from the house.

Step into this imposing property, leave your outerwear in the boot room, and make your way into the lounge, with its picture windows that draw the vistas right inside. Stoke up the wood burner on chilly days and find a film to enjoy together on the Smart TV. Prepare hearty feasts through in the kitchen/diner or perch at the breakfast bar with a cup of tea and a slice of Grasmere gingerbread. Serve up in style in the dining room. You also have a dishwasher, washing machine and everything else you need to make this a comfortable stay.

Great property and stunning location. Perfect for walking to Grasmere and the surrounding fells. Stayed with a group of 8 adults and the only flaw is not enough seating for 8 without someone needing to sit on the floor or a dining chair.

This house has amazing views and is in a lovely position to walk around the area and into Grassmere too. There is enough space and rooms for everyone to spread out and not crowd together all the time. The beds are very comfortable & all linens and towels are provided. The kitchen is very well stocked with enough cutlery & crockery to be used & placRead moreed in the dishwasher without washing up after every meal. The house was very clean & well maintained. The area is quiet with very little traffic. Hide

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
