Holly Grove Cottage is a beautiful retreat for 4 people and 1 dog, a stone's throw from the centre of Grasmere. Head inside and you're sure to feel right at home. On the ground floor is a charming living-dining room with stunning views out to the surrounding countryside, and a well equipped modern kitchen. Also on the ground floor are the cottage's 2 bathrooms. First up is the family bathroom, which has a bath with shower over, and there's also a great modern shower room. The 2 gorgeous bedrooms, one king-size and one double with its own en-suite WC, can be found on the first floor. Outside the cottage is a small patio area with garden furniture and a private parking space, a real treat so close to the centre of Grasmere.
Grasmere is a charming village and a wonderful place for a holiday. Once home to Lakes poet William Wordsworth, you'll soon see why he described his home as "the loveliest spot that man hath ever found". Spend a morning wondering around the local shops and galleries, or visit Wordsworth's former home at Dove Cottage to learn more about his life and work. Grasmere is surrounded by stunning scenery and the area offers fantastic walking opportunities. Explore the small National Trust woodland just around the corner from the cottage, take a scenic walk around the lake or venture up to picturesque Easedale Tarn. For a longer day out on the fell tops, head up Steel Fell and Helm Crag.
Head south to Ambleside and bustling Bowness where you can spend a day at, in or on Lake Windermere. Enjoy a peaceful lakeside picnic, wild swim, hire a boat or hop aboard one of the popular cruisers for a tour round the water in style. Why not take the ferry from Bowness across to Hawkshead, another delightful Lakes village that once home to Beatrix Potter. A scenic 20 minute drive north will bring you to Keswick. The adventure capital of the North Lakes, it's the perfect spot for adrenaline junkies! Whatever you decide to do during your stay, Holly Grove Cottage will be a welcome home from home to retreat to.
