The Lake District
Cumbria was formed from the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, part of North Lancashire, and part of Nort hYorkshire, and is now England's second largest county in size. Inside is the Lake District National Park, an area some 30 miles across, of which Grasmere is in the centre containing England's highest mountains (four over 3000 ft), and some of Englands biggest lakes.
Also within Cumbria is a small part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Cumbria can be reached by road and rail. The M6 motorway travels north through the centre of Cumbria - junction 36 near Kendal, junction 40 at Penrith and junctions 42-44 at Carlisle. Carlisle is a major railway junction on the West Coast Main Line from London Euston to Glasgow, which also has stations at Penrith and Oxenholme (for Kendal and Windermere
Grasmere is a charming village right in the heart of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England. Within easy reach are the honeypot towns of Ambleside, Keswick, Hawkshead, Coniston, Bowness and Windermere.
Grasmere lake lies to the south of the village, around which there are some gentle walks for those that prefer the lower ground. For those that prefer a greater challenge, in Grasmere you're centrally situated for taking on the craggy peaks of the Scafell Pikes, Helvellyn, Skiddaw and the Langdale Pikes.
Grasmere was once the home of the famous poet William Wordsworth; today you can visit two of his former homes - Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. Also in the centre of Grasmere is St. Oswalds Church, the churchyard of which contains the Wordsworth family graves.

"Stayed in many places in Grasmere but keep coming back to this one-our favourite."
Everything you could want from a cottage in the middle of Grasmere. Clean, comfortable peaceful, and everything you need for a walking holiday. Wonderful view and perfect spot to start your walks from.

"a comfortable cottage in an ideal location"
Buttercrag Cottage was warm and cosy for our winter break, with delightful views over Rothay Beck towards the Fairfield Horseshoe. In the heart of Grasmere, with ample private parking, this cottage proved to be an ideal location for exploring the Lakes. The small beckside garden has a comfortable seating area for the warmer weather. We found it reassuring that the owner lived nearby. We will definitely return to the cottage.
