Grasmere is an idyllic village located next to the lake of the same name, surrounded by beautiful hills and valleys. Holiday cottages in Grasmere promise amazing views over the this beautiful part of the Lake District – tending to overlook either the lake or hills. Take a deep breath and relax, taking it all in.
Grasmere is well known to fans of English literature for its famous resident poet William Wordsworth – three of his former houses can be visited close by, and there is a museum dedicated to him, too. The village also boasts a small but perfectly formed collection of tea rooms, galleries and gift shops.
For those who are drawn by the more natural charms of this lovely location, there is a huge choice of walks, climbs, and cycling tracks. Local events throughout the year include Grasmere Sport, the Grasmere Guzzler beer ceremony and the Rushbearing ceremony at St. Oswalds church, all worth a visit.
