Self-catering holiday accommodation in Grasmere
Home to the famous Sarah Nelson’s Grasmere Gingerbread and the burial place of William Wordsworth, Grasmere is a very popular holiday hotspot in the Lake District. The village is home to some beautiful walks, including the short walk to Grasmere lake and out to Dove Cottage where William and his sister Dorothy lived, now owned by the Wordsworth Trust. The lake itself offers rowing boats to hire during the summer, however the island in the middle where William and Dorothy used to picnic is out of bounds to the public.
Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop is a must-see stop on your tour of Grasmere. Invented in 1854, the cake cross biscuit is enjoyed by food lovers across the world. The shop is very small, allowing only a few people in at a time, so during busy periods you may notice a queue out the door, but it’s worth waiting for!
A stay in one of our Grasmere cottages means you are well placed to enjoy both the South Lakes and North Lakes as it is very central in the National Park. Take a look at our guide to Grasmere to find out even more about the village and its attractions.
