Grasmere is a picturesque village in the Lake District that is filled with tea shops and stone cottages. William Wordsworth’s former home, Dove Cottage, is located in the village, along with the Wordsworth Museum and Art Gallery and the family’s burial place at St Oswald’s Church. The area is encircled by the Central Fells, so spend some time soaking up the natural beauty on walks along the Coffin Route or to Easedale Tarn. Head to Faeryland for afternoon tea and extraordinary views of the lake. The enchanting café has an outdoor tea room with a view of Grasmere Lake and colourful wooden rowboats just waiting to be hired out for the day. Stay in a cosy farm house with a large garden and stunning views over the lake while you’re there.
