The aggregation of lake, village, church, valley and mountains
This charming village has strong Wordsworth connections.
William Wordsworth described Grasmere as ‘the loveliest spot that man hath ever found’.
This description may explain why the Romantic poet made his home here.
Grasmere is a definitely a centre for walkers as it is situated virtually in the centre of the Lake District.
From the village centre there is easy access to the fells with stunning views in all directions.
If you fancy enjoying one of his Wordsworth’s favourite walks there is an easy walk along Loughrigg Terrace.
From Loughrigg you can walk around Rydal Water with superb Lakeland views in all directions.
A slightly more strenuous hike is the short sharp ascent to the impressive rocks at the top of Helm Crag.
Other names for the crag include “The Lion and the Lamb” or the “Old Lady at the Piano”, which are names derived from the shape of rock formations on the summit.
Grasmere is 45 minutes away from Lothlorien by car.
Additionally, Grasmere is well seved with car parks but these fill up quickly so the advice is get there early.
