About Rowan at Grasmere

Rowan at Grasmere is a superb Lake District holiday home in Grasmere. Built on the site of a Victorian glasshouse within a walled garden, the south-facing holiday home has incredible views and a high standard of accommodation. There is space for six friends or family members to sleep in three beautiful ensuite bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen for self-catering, and lots of room indoors and outside so you can enjoy the beauty of the Lakes in all seasons. Guests adore the quiet and private location that is only a short walk from a small supermarket, shops, cafes, bars, and a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Grasmere is gorgeous. There aren't enough superlatives to describe the beauty of the village and its surroundings. We'll stick to Wordsworth's phrase "...the loveliest spot that man hath ever found." written about his village house and garden, Dove Cottage. You'll find all of the amenities you need whether you are cooking at home or want to dine out. Don't miss a visit to Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, selling all sorts of savory and sweet treats, including the delectable spicy cross between a cake and a biscuit. Dating from 1854, the shop is 33 years older than Sam Read Bookseller, where you can peruse books and maps of the local area. As lovely as the village is, the landscape makes it so unique. Fells and craggy outcrops rise sharply from the valley floor, overlooking winding lanes, ancient drystone walls enclosing fields and meadows, and the River Rothay as it flows into Grasmere Lake.

The Lake District attracts millions of visitors every year, yet it's always possible to find a quiet corner to contemplate its beauty. Choose from local lakeside strolls or fell walks to Easedale and Alcock Tarn, Helm Crag, and Helvellyn. Alternatively, head slightly further afield to Scafell Pike, wander through the daffodil-strewn woodlands, or boat on Lake Windermere, it's a visual delight in all seasons. Local attractions include Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum, and the Heaton Cooper Studio and Cafe, whilst just a little further away you will find the Coniston Museum, John Ruskin's Home, and Beatrix Potter's house.

Rowan at Grasmere is a luxury Lakeland holiday home with weekly rentals Saturday to Saturday. No short breaks. Accommodation is suitable for adults and children over 14 years. Enquire for younger ages.
