Grasmere Cottages

Luxury Self-Catering Holiday Cottages in Grasmere

“The loveliest spot that man hath ever found.” This is according to poet William Wordsworth, who made Grasmere his beloved family home for 14 years, and has made Grasmere one of the most popular villages in the Lake District. Despite this fame, Grasmere and its two small lakes lie right in the heart of the Central Fells and so feel very much like ‘getting away’. Yet, the A591, the artery running through the Lakes, connects Grasmere effortlessly with Keswick and Derwentwater, only 11 miles north and Ambleside (4 miles) and lake Windermere (9 miles) in the south. Grasmere water meets the quieter Langdale valley and Coniston is only 12 miles. Grasmere definitely is the smaller sibling of the Lake District’s tourist hot spot, Ambleside.

The Michelin starred restaurant, Forest Side, is a must on your itinerary when staying in Grasmere. Indeed, Forest Side is a reason in itself to visit Grasmere.  This beautifully restored former hunting lodge gained its first coveted star after only 6 months of opening and wows with their attentive service and locally foraged menu. The Old Stamp House, former workplace of William Wordsworth, in nearby Ambleside is also a superb dining experience that is new to the Lake’s impressive culinary map. From the superb formal dining at The Dining Room restaurant to the laid-back chic of the organic Jumble Room and range of local pubs Grasmere, is a very welcoming and upmarket location indeed.

Within Grasmere village, there is a bustling centre, with lovely relaxed café, restaurant and independent shopping during the day and a cultured buzz in the evening. The central Lake District village is well geared up for a self-catering break, with Tourist Information Centre, Post Office and Bureau de change as well as grocery shops and delicatessens.

You’ll find some truly unique retail therapy in Grasmere. The village has a thriving range of successful independent local businesses, like Sam Read’s Bookshop and the Heaton Cooper Art Studios.

Sarah Nelson’s famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop was the village school for 220 years and in fact, William Wordsworth taught there in the early 19th century. 160 years on, the famous spicy-sweet recipe lives on and can be bought from her cottage, which remains relatively unchanged.

Other village businesses to look out for are Grasmere Chocolate Cottage and one of the Lake District’s most-loved restaurants, the Jumble Room, which features in the Good Food Guide and where you are in for a homemade, eclectic dining treat.

GRASMERE GOLD CURATED

Everything appears almost in idyllic miniature in Grasmere – two smalls lakes in this u-shaped valley, are surrounded by a gentle landscape of woodland and farmland, surrounded by a low fell, but distinctive, backdrop. This is a valley full of character, from the landscape to its historical residents, and our very special offering of 10 luxury cottages in Grasmere share this character.

From large, detached accommodation, ideal for large group and family gettogethers, to centrally located, contemporary home from homes and crag-side retreats that are all about the breathtaking views, this collection is as unique in character as this special valley.

COMPLIMENTS OF GRASMERE GOLD

Whilst the properties in this collection are rare and unique, they share an unrivalled quality, in both service and accommodation offering. And this intimate service extends to The Wordsworth Hotel Organic Spa, which is inclusive with our Grasmere luxury cottages. Here you can indulge in a treatment, swim and jacuzzi dip, in the light-filled conservatory-style spa, where stresses and strains will simply drift away. Our luxury Grasmere cottages with private hot tubs, WiFi, state of the art kitchens, unique period features and statement fixtures and fittings, like Arga’s and roll top feature bath tubs, offer a glance into a unique world at the very heart of the Romantic Lake District.

STEP INSIDE GRASMERE GOLD

Our Grasmere Gold collection are all designed to take advantage of this dreamy landscape. For many this includes views onto the fells, pastoral valley as well as picturesque Grasmere water. Many of our luxury cottages in Grasmere have large private gardens, designed for the ultimate in outdoor living – patio doors bring the outside in and dressed terraces are designed for whiling summer evenings away.

Inside, the focus is on these unique properties, which all have their own character. We have contemporary refurbishments which will wow and impress – statement woodburners, smart TVs and chic furnishings sit harmoniously with exposed wooden beams and slate masonry in a luxurious combination of old and new. In grand Grasmere properties, space is king with large kitchens and generous socialising areas, large dining tables and super-size family bedrooms. All are immaculate and generous in their attention to detail.

GRASMERE GOLD PETS

Bring your beloved four-legged family members with you for a very special relax with a Grasmere luxury getaway, offering expansive private gardens filled with new sights, smells and sounds and walkies straight from your door.  Our pet friendly, luxury, cottages in Grasmere offer a break for the whole family and the small but vibrant village has so much to offer.

Most importantly, there are plenty of walks starting from Grasmere for dogs of all abilities. Alcock Tarn is steep in parts, 6km, circular walk from the National Trust gift shop (17th century building once an inn where Wordsworth stayed and also formerly home of Robert Hayes, who had a market garden here and went on to develop Hayes Garden Centre). For gentle strolls, there’s the scenic central riverside walk where you can take in the local sights, including St. Oswalds church, the Grasmere Gingerbread shop, Wordsworth Daffodil Garden, The Storytellers Garden and the “peace oak” planted by Canon Rawnsley founder of the National Trust. There’s the famous Lion and Lamb, Helm Crag, the popular Loughrigg Fell, as well as the classic Lakeland walk, the Fairfield Horseshoe and Silver How for when you get a good weather window.

And for all visitors, the region’s most famous country sports event, Grasmere Sports, is like stepping back in time and the nearby Rydal’s Sheepdog Trials & Hound Show are a must for dog lovers.

The mist hanging early in the morning in the Grasmere valley, is a scene like no-other, and the clinking of glasses toasting in the evening is the just beginning of a very warm welcome waiting for you with Grasmere Gold.
