Grasmere - the loveliest spot that man hath found.
Grasmere is just what you'd expect it to be -delightful, charming, full of character but above all else, absolutely stunning. Situated in the heart of the Lake District in England it can be easily described as the ultimate location as it has easy access to other wonderful Cumbrian towns including; Keswick, Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere to name but a few.
Grasmere is also the perfect place to stay if you enjoy outdoor activities as it has a range of both gentle walks on offer as well as more active and difficult trails.
The central location of grasmere is handy for people who enjoy challenges and outdoor pursuits as it is in close proximity to the craggy creaks of Scafell Pike, Skiddaw and the Langdale Pikes.
Many of the Lake District towns that surround Grasmere can be classed as big tourist hotspots, especially places like Bowness on Windermere which attracts people all year round.
Grasmere, however, although very popular, is for people who appreciate beauty in its finest form and want to get out exploring. It is so beautiful in fact that William Wordsworth once described the place as 'the loveliest spot that man hath found.' Grasmere was actually the home of the famous poet with two of the town's best loved attractions being two of his former homes - Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount.
On the subject of attractions, Grasmere may be a place of great beauty but it also has a wealth of activities available for people of all ages and tastes to enjoy. There are also many shopping experiences to be had too.
As you'd expect one of the most popular offerings is the variety of walks and trails that are on offer. There's nothing better than walking through the fells and experiencing nature as it should be. It also happens to be a great base for hill walking.
Grasmere Church is also a popular landmark to see and there is also the chance to have your name engraved in a paving stone in the Wordsworth Daffodil garden. Shops and places to eat are also aplenty too.
If you're looking for somewhere to relax as well as grab something to eat after a day seeing the sights, a good place to stop at is the Tweedies Bar and Restaurant.
Luckily for you however, if you fancy something different a lot of Grasmere's eateries have AA rosettes and can offer something a little bit special. Gold Rill Hotel and Restaurant as well as Grasmere Hotel and Restaurant are both highly popular choices. There are also many snack and coffee shops dotted around nearby.
