About the neighbourhood
Grasmere needs little introduction, famous for being the home of William Wordsworth and now one of the Lake District's premier tourist destinations. As well as Wordsworth's home, Dove Cottage, the village has numerous shops, hotels, cafes, galleries and restaurants. For day-to-day essentials, there is a well-stocked Co-op, a newsagents, a pharmacy and a post office. And of course there is the Grasmere Gingerbread shop!

Situated at the heart of the Lake District, it is only a short drive to places such as Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness, Ullswater and the Langdale Valley. Alternatively, there is the very regular 555 bus service – passing within 250m of the cottage - linking many of these pl
