In the heart of the pretty Lake District village of Grasmere, you'll find The Old Gallery, a beautiful home from home for up to 4 people. Inside you'll find a well equipped kitchen and a spacious living-dining room, complete with cosy wood burner. Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 beautiful bedrooms and the lovely family bathroom. As well as parking for 1 car, there's also a little patio with outdoor furniture, a real bonus for a cottage in the centre of Grasmere.
From the quant selection of independent shops and art galleries to the quirky cafes and restaurants, this pretty village is rightly popular with visitors and locals alike. There are plenty of wonderful walks nearby too. Explore the woods at popular White Moss on the shores of the lake. From here you can continue on to Rydal Caves or up to the top of Loughrigg Fell - the short but steep climb is certainly worth it for the stunning views from the summit. Walk from the door up to Easedale Tarn; follow the footpath across fields and alongside waterfalls before reaching this beautiful mountain tarn, the perfect spot to enjoy some delicious Grasmere Gingerbread!
If you fancy heading slightly further afield, both the northern and southern Lakes are easily accessible from Grasmere. Spend a day exploring the bustling market town of Keswick or head to the magnificent Langdale Valley - with its rugged mountains and peaceful tarns, it's a must for any avid fell walker. Ambleside is a scenic 15 minute drive away; here you can treat yourselves to dinner and a movie at Zeffirellis with its multiscreen cinema and Italian restaurant, a lovely evening out. Why not continue south to Bowness and Windermere? Indulge in some retail therapy, hire a boat or let someone else do the hard work and enjoy a scenic cruise around Lake Winderemere on one of the popular launches.
