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 worth the visit just...More
