Upper Longsyke is a stunning cottage offering luxury accommodation for six people and one lucky dog.  From the ground floor entrance hall head up the stairs to the beautiful living accommodation.  On the first floor is the fantastic living room, with a cosy wood burner perfect for relaxing evenings, and the well equipped dining kitchen.  Also on this floor is a lovely twin bedroom (this room can be made up as a super king on request) and a marvellous shower room with monsoon shower.  Up on the second floor are the further two bedrooms, both king sized rooms with their own luxurious en-suite bathrooms and walk-in dressing rooms.  Complimentary toiletries are provided in each bathroom, a real treat.  There is private parking for two cars at the cottage and a lovely enclosed patio garden with outdoor furniture.

The centre of Grasmere is a short walk from Upper Longsyke.  This pretty village is rightly popular with visitors and locals alike.  There are a great selection of independent shops for those who'd like to indulge in some retail therapy and some lovely independent cafes for that all important coffee and homemade cake pitstop.  Fancy an evening off from cooking?  Treat yourselves to a hearty meal in a convivial atmosphere at popular Tweedies Bar or head to the quirky Jumble Room for some delicious home cooked dishes.  There are plenty of wonderful walks nearby too.  Head up local fell Loughrigg for stunning panoramic views or take the walk from the village up to Easedale Tarn, a beautiful spot for a picnic lunch.  Both dogs and humans will love exploring the woodland paths at White Moss.

Take a scenic drive south from Grasmere to Ambleside.  Here you can treat yourselves to dinner and a movie at Zeffirellis with its multiscreen cinema and Italian restaurant - it's a lovely evening out.  Enjoy a cruise round Lake Windermere or hop on the ferry to Hawkshead across the water, another charming village that was once home to Beatrix Potter.  Why not spend a day exploring the magnificent Langdale Valley?  With its rugged mountains and peaceful tarns, it's a must for any avid fell walker.  Head up Lingmoor Fell for stunning, panoramic views of the lakes.  Stop off at one of the traditional pubs on your way back for a hearty meal and refreshing drink.
