Welcome to Stonegarth Cottage, a very well presented ground floor cottage
Just off centre of Grasmere village, and a five minute walk to Grasmere Lake.
Cheerful, cosy and peaceful with shared private garden and off road car parking.
The cottage could not be in a nicer location, flat stroll into the centre with all the shops pubs and eating places, the lake and fell walks from the village itself, and off course Dove Cottage 10 minutes away with all its Wordsworth connections.
Stonegarth was built in 2001 so has a very modern feel, the patio doors lead Into a well appointed sitting room and kitchenette. Solid oak floors throughout with under floor heating make this a very comfortable place to stay. All windows overlook the garden and views of the hills and fells surrounding Grasmere.
The kitchen has a large fridge and freezer, electric hob and oven, microwave.
It is well stocked with pots and pans, however there are plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from all within the village.
The bedroom can be twin bedded or super king double and has an en suite Shower wet room. All bed linen and towels are supplied. Plenty of wardrobe space, hairdryer provided.
Crowned with magnificent fells and mountains, Grasmere nestles right in the heart of the Lake District. From Dunmail raise in the north, the vale of Grasmere opens up with the rugged peak of Helm Crag (locally known as the "lion and the Lamb" sheltering the town below. A very romantic village to visit..
Grasmere´s early history was devoted to farming, wool manufacture and some mineral and rock extraction. The old packhorse route between Ambleside and Grasmere used to be the main route between the two towns for the transport of cloth and coffins, hence the coffin stone where the bearers rested on route, can still be seen today. When the New turnpike road the A591, was opened it earned the name "penny rock corner" by locals as everyone had a penny added to their rates to pay for the blasting.
Attilio & I have lived in Grasmere for around 30 years, we love living and working here and will do our very best to ensure you have a wonderful stay.
