Grasmere is set in a valley that is surrounded by hills with the
Lake of Grasmere a short walk away. The village is positioned
centrally in geographical terms within the lakes. The village
is a gem for William
Wordsworth fans and also for walkers where excellent
walks can be enjoyed from a pleasant walk to the more strenuous
walks with routes to the top of Helvellyn from Thirlmere
being a short drive away to begin the walk.
Around the square in Grasmere, with its green, you will
find a number of attractive stone-built houses. On the main
road which twists through the village, are old cottages,
Victoria villas, hotels, guesthouses, galleries and shops.
