If views are top of your agenda, look no further than Kelbarrow! The panoramas are stunning throughout and the master bedroom has one of the finest outlooks in the Lakes.
Part of an elegant conversion of a Victorian residence, Kelbarrow sits in seclusion and peace in a small collective of stone-built properties near Grasmere village. This is high-quality accommodation for six in one of the most sought-after areas of the Lakes.
Kelbarrow is simply the dream Lakeland retreat. Cosy yet contemporary, your living space is lovingly designed, with beautiful antique Tuscan furniture and a wood-burning stove to warm yourselves around on those crisp winter days. And you can really sink into those supremely comfortable leather sofas!

Grasmere is so rich in history, and the little church at heart of the village, St. Oswald's, is the focal point of the yearly Rushbearing ceremony, as well as the resting place of the celebrated poet William Wordsworth. You won't want to miss his family home at Dove Cottage in this respect, and talking of history, the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop provides a tasty treat from ages past. We love the kind of local culture you can taste!
You are perfectly situated at Kelbarrow to enjoy the other thing Grasmere is particularly rich in: scenery! The vale is really one of the most blessed places in the country in this respect, and not far from you is the path known as Loughrigg Terrace, which lays out the lakes and hillsides below in all their glory. Nearby, too, is Silver How, a hill that must be walked when you stay here, dividing the Grasmere and Langdale valleys and offering exceptional views into both.
At home, you have a stunning dining-kitchen to take your meals in, although you will want to eat outside in the lovely garden on sunny days, or try the local food in the village; Forestside is a restaurant not to be missed for dedicated foodies.
Kelbarrow is an outstanding choice of holiday home right in the heart of the Lake District, offering style, quality and comfort throughout. Stay here with us and simply be enchanted by Wordsworth's Grasmere!
