Cosy Holiday Home, Grasmere

With views over Grasmere to the famous 'Lion & Lamb', this impressive Lakeland residence takes an elevated position only a short stroll (15 minutes) from the centre of Grasmere. Eller Close House adjoins two smaller cottages but enjoys complete privacy in its enchanting gardens. Inside you'll find sympathetically refurbished accommodation throughout ample living space. With en-suite bathrooms to every bedroom, everyone will have their own space here. Each bedroom has a charm of its own, the dining room ensures you'll make the most of time at home, and the living room - warmed by a log burning stove - promises rewarding 'downtime' after a day on the fells.

Accommodation in detail
Parking for 3 cars outside the property. Traditional stone steps lead down to the entrance porch, and the entrance hall which features a writing desk. Perhaps you'll be inspired just as William Wordsworth was! The elegant living room has a superb splayed window, comfortable furnishings and open fire. Well-equipped kitchen / dining room with space for sociable meals in.
Upstairs to the 3 double en-suite bedrooms (one with a four poster bed) and additional twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Large, lovely gardens with outdoor seating.

Location
This large cottage in Grasmere is truly enviable for its scenic location. With the views beginning at home, you'll be tempted to take on such famous Lake District walks as Silver How, Lang How and Helm Crag. Rising behind the property is the impressive 'Fairfield Horseshoe' - keen walkers will be spoilt for choice.
But a holiday property in Grasmere isn't just a dream for walkers. This historic Lake District village is famed for its connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived in the village at Dove Cottage - now owned by the National Trust and open to the public as part of the Wordsworth Museum. Artists will enjoy browsing several watercolour galleries in Grasmere, particularly the Heaton Cooper Studio which displays the Cooper family's famous work as well as that of inspired local artists.

The village centre has all the facilities you'll need during your self-catering holiday at the heart of the Lakes. From local shops and supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide-listed Jumble Room is a treat for a special occasion.
Travel a short distance back along the A591, past tranquil Rydal Water, and you'll reach Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. There you'll find a cosmopolitan village centre with a wider range of shops, cafes, cinema, acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House, and the opportunity to take a cruise on Lake Windermere.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
