You can sense the history in this luxurious and romantic Grasmere cottage, providing a perfect retreat for one or two couples to enjoy a fabulous Lake District self catering cottage holiday. Almost a neighbour to the former home of William Wordsworth, Dove Holme Cottage is beautifully presented, displaying the most elegant of traditional features; adorning oak beams, wood-burning fireplace and gorgeous English country cottage bedrooms; one with a superb four-poster bed.

The cottage has a cosy atmosphere for evenings in and special occasions, but is also only a few minutes' stroll from Grasmere's village centre for shops, restaurants and country pubs. Keen fell walkers will stride out straight from the doorstep, perhaps never needing to use the car, and will find the sleek modern bathroom just right at the end of a long day. Only a stone's throw from William Wordsworth's Dove Cottage, this romantic Lake District cottage is nestled in a peaceful conservation area on the edges of Grasmere village, close to the pretty lake.

Try the route up to Easedale Tarn in the fells above the village, visit the shores of nearby Rydal Water, or take on Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name but a few! The Langdale Pikes are accessible from the Langdale Valley, only a short drive away, and up the road at Thirlmere you'll find the start point for an ascent of Helvellyn. Grasmere itself is well-served for self-catering in the Lake District, with a Booths supermarket, lovely local shops and a vibrant market square. Drive a few miles to Ambleside along the A591, and you'll find a more cosmopolitan village centre with sophisticated shops, delis and acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House. Don't forget to explore the wealth of excellent country gastro-pubs in the Lake District.

Please exit the M6 at Junction 36 and follow the A591 to the Lake District. You will pass by Kendal and need to follow the signs for Windermere/Ambleside. After around 10 miles you will reach Windermere village, continue past Windermere Village following the main road through to Ambleside, follow the one-way system until you come across signs for Grasmere and Keswick keeping in the left hand lane on the one-way system. On approaching Grasmere you will pass the Waterside Hotel on your left and almost opposite you will see the Dove Cottage and Wordworth Museum Restaurant on your right. You may wish to load and unload your car right outside the cottage, yet we advise you to be careful, as this lane is quite narrow and is actually a designated public footpath
