Explore the Lake District


About Grasmere

Grasmere’s status as one of the Lakes’ loveliest holiday destinations was assured by William Wordsworth and the Lakes poets who found plenty of inspiration amongst the gentle waters, green fields and craggy fells surrounding the village. Wordsworth himself described it as "the loveliest spot that man hath ever found." Visit the writer’s beautiful Dove Cottage close to the shore of the lake and you will find it hard to disagree.

Holiday cottages in Grasmere aren’t just perfect for those looking for gentle relaxation and unrivalled tranquillity, however. The village is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts looking to hike and climb amongst the region’s most stunning scenery – including the iconic ‘The Lion and the Lamb’ atop Helm Crag or Easedale Tarn. Alternatively, exploring the village’s calendar of seasonal events or its fantastic artisan produce is an equally wonderful way of spending your time on holiday in Grasmere – and part of the reason it’s such a popular all-year round destination.
