Home of the relaxed hilltop rambler
Whether you are a walker, runner, cyclist or simply wanting to breath in the fresh air and eat cake. Grasmere offers a slice for everyone. This friendly village and community invites you in the explore.
Overlooking the village is an impressive rocky hill of Helm Crag, popularly known as ‘The Lion and the Lamb’, given by the shape of the large rock at the summit. Others have named it the ‘Old lady at the piano’ dependant how you squint your eye. It’s a hearty 3 hour walk, with beautiful resting points throughout for a picnic and to soak up the views. See which one you can spot; the Lion or the Lady...
Grasmere is a bustling little village with plentiful independent shops, spas and galleries for you to enjoy as well as your chance to meet the Lakeland herdwick sheep.
Take a wonder to Wordsworth Daffodil garden and burial site, then look inside the original home of Mrs Sarah Nelson, her 19th Century secret recipe gingerbread is well-worth the wait.
