    “Extremely disappointed that there was not a hairdryer.”

    Clearly this had been a problem for other people as we found an empty hairdryer box in one of the cupboards. In 35 years of holidays in the lakes we have never had a house without a hairdryer. As we all have hairdryers at home we didn't want to buy another and even rang to ask if it would be possible to borrow one. This did spoil our experience somewhat.

    Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry about the lack of hairdryer and will provide one for each of the en-suite bedrooms. Property Owner

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.
