A delightful traditional slate cottage in an unmatchable location!
William Wordsworth's favourite village and home for many years, you are in the true heart of the Lake District in pretty Grasmere. Sleek contemporary finishings and truly remarkable views make Fairfield Cottage a choice that will surely pay for itself in magical memories.
You might well choose just to sit on the patio and watch the clouds sail by over Silver How and Stone Arthur, and if so your holiday will be well spent! Fairfield Cottage makes the most of its enviable position on the western slopes of Grasmere Vale, and the Juliet balcony in the master bedroom lets you look out over misty pastures in the morning to the picture-postcard hills beyond.
It goes without saying that you are in premium walking territory here. The central Lakeland fells wrap themselves around you, and walking routes are easy to find from your doorstep. Helm Crag, locally known as the Lion and the Lamb, looms appealingly above the village, and Fairfield Horseshoe, from which your cottage takes its name, is right behind you.
Grasmere is rich in history, and you will certainly want to visit Dove Cottage, Wordsworth's primary residence here, and his grave at the rustic St. Oswald's church, not to mention the many art galleries that dot the streets. The welcoming pubs, restaurants and tearooms of the little village will keep you well fed and watered, and there is so much to do during your holiday, with busy Ambleside just a few miles away and Keswick a short drive to the north.
Your cottage is beautifully presented, with spacious bedrooms full of natural light, and living areas designed for comfortable and social living. It is the ideal place to spend time with family or close friends, and we know that you really won't want to leave at the end of your stay.
