This lovely penthouse apartment has been refurbished to provide comfortable and spacious accommodation for two to four people in one of the Lake District’s prime village locations. Exposed beams and other traditional features combine with HD TVs, fast Wi-Fi and other great facilities to provide the perfect combination of old and new for either a romantic getaway or a relaxing family holiday.
A top-floor apartment in the heart of the Lake District should have outstanding views, and Russet Eaves does not disappoint; the panorama from the lounge window, out across Grasmere’s village green towards Silver Howe, is captivating. One can sit for hours in the window seat here, watching the ever-changing scenery and the comings and goings of the visitors and locals below. The view from the kitchen is possibly even better, looking northwards over woods and fields to Helm Crag and its famous summit rocks, the Lion and the Lamb.
Grasmere is the ideal location for any visitor to the Lakes; walkers will find a range of outstanding walks in every direction, from gentle river and lakeside strolls, through pleasant woodland and valley outings, up to full high mountain expeditions. What’s more, the local bus service stops alongside the village green, allowing an even wider range of walks to and from the door to be undertaken without the use of a car. Less energetic guests, or those in need of a rest day, will enjoy wandering the beautiful village of Grasmere itself, with its wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
The ground floor of the building houses Cunninghams Outdoor Shop, Sam Read’s famous bookstore and Lucia’s Takeaway Coffee Shop, while alongside the village green are a further selection of cafes and shops. Fifty yards or so in the other direction are a newsagent and a convenience store, open from early till late and extremely useful for groceries and other essentials.
So whether you are looking for a cosy hideaway in which to relax and admire the spectacular Lakeland scenery, or a base for walking adventures in Britain’s best-loved mountains, Russet Eaves has everything you need for a holiday to remember.
