Woodland Crag Cottage is situated in a small hamlet on the road to the rear of Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage close to the famous Lakeland town of Grasmere. There are just a handful of cottages and a farm in this tranquil location and is within very easy walking distance to the centre of Grasmere. The historic property built of Lakeland stone about 200 years ago now provides extremely comfortable cosy cottage accommodation for six people with all the modern equipment and facilities one could want. The only noise to disturb the peace of this property is the stream which runs at the side of the house.
Accommodation downstairs consists of a hallway with coat and boot rack, spacious tastefully furnished lounge with feature fireplace and an open fire, a cottage style kitchen / dining area with all modern appliances and a bathroom with a bath. Upstairs is a large double bedroom, a smaller double bedroom with sliding door leading onto the garden area and a twin bedroom. The separate bathroom on the first floor has a shower.
To the rear of the property is a small well planted private garden for guests to enjoy as well as an enclosed, shingle patio area to the front.
Parking for two cars is available right outside the cottage.
A short walk down the lane is Grasmere, famous for being home to William Wordsworth. He once described it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”. The Wordsworth Cottage and museum are a short stroll from the cottage and well worth a visit. Today, the town is a bustling hive of activity and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Lake District. It is home to the famous Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread. Its traditional bakery and quaint shop shouldn’t be missed. Grasmere has several art galleries, gift shops, cafes, pubs, a selection of outdoor equipment retailers and a Co-op convenience store.
Ambleside is a short 5 mile drive away or a pleasant walk through the woods behind the cottage. A regular and frequent bus service runs between the towns. Keswick is approximately 13 miles away and can also be accessed by bus.
