Your own detached country house in the most stunning part of Lakeland! Located by Skelwith Bridge, an idyllic little hamlet at the foot of the beautiful Langdale Valleys, this magnificent Lakeland property is a premium example of luxury self-catering in the Lake District. With unmatchable views, a wonderfully spacious layout and everything you need on hand at the highest specification, Grass Ings is a true gem just waiting for our Lakelovers to discover!
Although a great feature of Grass Ings is its rural location, you'll find the attractions of popular Ambleside are only a short car ride away, while
Coniston and Hawkshead are also close. There is even a bus-stop just a few moments away from your property, so though pleasingly tucked away in the most gorgeous countryside, you are in no way cut off from life and civilisation. But its surely that rural setting which will delight your party most of all. Mesmeric views become the focus of your stay as soon as you arrive at Grass Ings!
This is idyllic Lakeland countryside indeed, and every window of this fine rural residence pulls out a new perfect picture to make you gasp. A large window seat in the lounge lets you gaze out across the ever-changing valley to the fells while sipping a hot cup of tea. The kitchen, always the heart of a true Lakeland home, again lets you relax together while soaking in the vista over Loughrigg Fell. You will love sitting in the beautiful porch behind the house, too, overlooking the river and sinking into the serenity and a good read with your morning cuppa or evening cocoa! And at the end of the day, where better to bliss out than the boutique bedrooms, all superbly appointed and again enjoy those spirit-lifting vistas.
The generous grounds at Grass Ings also make the most of the incredible setting. The patio is a divine spot to bask in the summer sun and while away a few blessed hours over a lazy Lakeland lunch. If you'd prefer to eat out, you have the highly-rated Chesters By The River cafe at Skelwith Bridge to entice you – we recommend the sharing bowl of salads or the mouth-watering flatbreads, and, of course, you are bound to be tempted by their scrumptious selection of cakes!
There is also a lovely pub in the hamlet: the Talbot Inn is a friendly traditional hostelry, serving hearty Cumbrian fare, and makes for a perfect end point to your fellside adventures. And of course, the walking opportunities are endless, with wonderful riverside rambles, high country wanders and plenty of stirring summits!
Grass Ings is a thoroughly gracious host, and perfectly placed to let your party get to know the best of the Lake District!
