“Ideal base for Lakes walking”

Very quiet and peaceful location in woodland where you sleep in perfect silence and wake to the songs of many different birds, such as blackbird, song thrush, wood pigeon, chiff-chaff, willow warbler, blackcap, robin, wren . . .
The facilities are simple but adequate, with a comfortable king-size bed, dining table in a large bay window looking onto the garden, a small verandah facing east for sunny breakfasts in the open and a log fire for cold nights. Phone signal was good on Vodaphone, but don't expect too much from the wi-fi as the connection is very flakey.
Grasmere village is only a 20 minute walk and there are many enjoyable, scenic walks direct from the property, so give the car a rest!

The cottage is a perfect little retreate ideal for those who love walking. We did not use a car or the bus the whole time we were there. You really are spoilt for choice with the walks, and Grasmere is only a stones throw away with some lovely pubs.

The location is better than expected you are slap bang in the middle of both Grasmere and Rhydal, so you really couldnt ask for better! The grounds the house is on are beautiful and it is such a joy to see such lovely wild flowers teeming with wildlife. We saw a deer walking past the bottom of the grounds which made our holiday.

The area is full of history and this is the base to look at it all from!! Perfect to unwind in the evenings, sitting watching the bees working in the garden, the dragon flys, squirels, birds and more... there is no reason for the TV to go on.. unless you need to check the weather ;)

We would happily stop here again.

The lodge had everything we needed, it was cosy especially with the log fire and ideal for our young dog. Loads of walks from the front door with some lovely views. Great, quite cosy lodge in the heart of the Lake District, for a long weekend escape.

Ok, that's Gray not Wordsworth, but seemed appropriate.
Basically a one room living/dining/sleeping area with a small kitchen and shower room - converted from a study built by De Selincourt. This was absolutely perfect as a base and cosy retreat for walking the many local paths and hills - I stayed for 5 days and barely scratched the surface of what's available in the way of local walks. Loughrigg, Easdale, Ambleside, Coffin Walk, Rydal, Grasmere, Alcock Tarn - my car never moved once. Read the Grasmere diaries of Dorothy Wordsworth, walk the paths she and her brother walked (some hardly changed in 200 years), and this will enhance your enjoyment tenfold. The woods are teaming with wildlife - birds (numerous Tawny Owls), and a deer that was waiting near the gate most evenings. Was sad to leave.

“A real getaway from it all break.”

lovely little lodge, lovely area within walking distance of Grasmere.
It is what it shows, which is exactly what we wanted for a short break in the lakes.
