    “Fantastic property in good position, we have stayed before and really enjoyed our return visit!”

The property

This cosy and characterful ground floor cottage sleeping 4 with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms has recently been refurbished and is ideally located in the centre of the popular village of Grasmere, making it an ideal retreat for families and couples alike. Grasmere is internationally acclaimed not only for its Wordsworth connections but also as it sits at the northern tip of the lake with the fells towering above in the most stunning scenery imaginable.

It is a walkers haven with low and high walks available in all directions. A wide selection of tea rooms, restaurants and traditional village inns and a range of local shops including the world famous gingerbread shop and Heaton Cooper Art Gallery help to make this a popular destination at any time of the year. Old Bakers Cottage is a cosy characterful cottage tucked away just off the centre of Grasmere.

It was once a bakery serving the village, but is now an ideal honeymoon cottage.

Situated on the ground floor below Bakers Rest, the cottage is ideal for families or couples looking for accommodation on one level.

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family has been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century, and Grasmere Lake. Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere, and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
