Self-catering holiday accommodation in Rydal
On the main road between Ambleside and Grasmere, Rydal is a small village and lake. The village is home to Rydal Mount which was the home to William Wordsworth and his family up until his death. He was noted to have enjoyed taking picnics down by the lakeside, and before his death he planted a field of daffodils in memory of his daughter Dora, now known as Dora’s Field, which is part of the National Trust. Nearby Nab Cottage is also well-known for being home to Hartley Coleridge, who was the eldest son of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and family friend of the Wordsworth’s.
A stay in one of our Rydal cottages will transport you back to a time where literary names roamed the paths of the village. Find out more about the beautiful and tranquil Rydal Water with our guide.
