A self catering cottage of character in Wordsworth's Grasmere

Our Lakeland house has been designed with the larger self catering party in mind, sleeping 10 with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and separate WC. On the ground floor there is a large open plan kitchen and dining room with open fire and dining table thats seats 10, a separate sitting room with wood burning stove and seating for 10 and a separate utility/kitchen, pantry and plenty of space to store walking boots etc. It is a fantastic property in a wonderful location, a place to spend some well deserved special time with family and friends.
Fairy Glen is situated at the quieter northern end of Grasmere, with parking for 3 cars and its own private lawned garden and terrace area with out door seating; The garden is certainly a perfect place to take in the magnificent panoramic views whilst enjoying a glass of wine in the evening sun. The high fells which provide Fairy Glens back drop create a silence described as ‘deafening’. A short level stroll brings you to the village centre. Grasmere is a charming village in the heart of the Lake District National Park, situated in a valley surrounded by the lush green slopes of the Lakeland hills. Lovely old cottages and houses built of the local blue-green slate sit along side art galleries and shops that line the twisty streets of the village. The village has a variety of real ale pubs and restaurants with wonderful cuisine on hand to suit every palate. Grasmere Lake and Rydal Water lies just to the south, around which there are some gentle low level walks. For those that want more strenuous walking Grasmere is ideally located for the Langdale Pikes, Helvellyn and Scarfell Pikes.
Grasmere was once home to the famous poet William Wordsworth and visitors can visit both his homes; Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. Also in the centre of the village is St. Oswald’s Church which contains the Wordsworth family graves. All can be reached easily from Fairy Glen.
Whether you are planning a family holiday, weekend getaway or an activity based break with friends, our self catering cottage is perfectly situated to explore the whole of the lake district, with breathtaking mountain scenery and fascinating attractions right on the doorstep. It is suitable for couples, families and large groups.
