Thanks in part to its historic connection with William Wordsworth, not to mention its enviable location in one of the UK's most impressive visitor locations, Grasmere is the most popular village in Cumbria's Lake District an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the largest National Park in the UK. Grasmere holiday cottages enjoy enviable views of green rolling hills, stunning fells, trees and nothing but unspoilt countryside in this hugely popular visitor area, and there is plenty of high-quality accommodation to enjoy as a couple, family, group - or even for solo travel with your dog!
In Grasmere village, you will find traditional stone cottages, handsome Georgian and Victorian villas, cobbled streets and a beautiful lake that offers kayaking, rowing, paddleboarding and swimming, and which is quieter than other nearby Lake District lakes such as Windermere. From Grasmere holiday cottages, head to the churchyard to visit Wordsworth's grave, wander along to Rydal Water and pick up one of the many beautiful footpaths, enjoy a slice of famous Grasmere gingerbread in a cafe and explore the impressive cave at Loughrigg Terrace.
From your cosy accommodation, you can enjoy active pursuits such as mountain biking, watersports, hiking, and organised outdoor activities such as archery or climbing. Alternatively, take it easy with strolls, sightseeing, tours of the church, and local historic hotspots and a pint or two by an open stove in one of the many excellent pubs. The Grasmere holiday cottages on offer tend to be of very high quality and they are offer wonderfully comfortable amenities after a busy day of enjoyment in this vast outdoor playground.

Shops, walking routes, pubs, bars and some of the best restaurants in the area are in easy walking distance and guests will also enjoy spacious cottages (great for groups), dog-friendly accommodation, hot tubs and other high amenities, not to mention the incredible views.
