Absolutely loved this place. We’ve been coming to Grasmere for years and never visited before as we assumed that we wouldn’t be able to take in our dog (who is now a little older so happy to be left in his own for a rest)-...More

This National Trust property is unlike any other I have visited. It isn’t polished or renovated but those are qualities I believe add to its charm. It’s a beautiful house set in stunning grounds with incredible views. The volunteers are friendly and are obviously passionate...More

There's not really a lot to see here yet, as the place hasn't been open long and is still undergoing restoration, but it is the former home of the founders of the National Trust and steeped in atmosphere and ideals. It's worth the visit just...More
