April Cottage Grasmere
About April Cottage
April Cottage is a gorgeous 200 year old cottage built out of Lakeland stone. It has been restored with great care to keep all the charm, yet still benefits from all the modern comforts.
The cottage is on Easedale Road which is tucked away in a quiet area approximately five minutes walk from Grasmere Village. It is a family run cottage and we would like our guests to enjoy it as much as we do. We also hope that our guests will enjoy the surrounding area as there is such a lot to see and do without venturing very far.
Grasmere itself oozes character and charm and has got many fabulous restaurants and pubs. It has also been the home of the famous Wordsworth, so there are attractions like ‘Dove Cottage’ to visit, and also the famous Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread Shop. Not only are there attractions like these but there is also a park in the village which keeps the children happy. If that fails then a bus service runs regularly into nearby towns and villages. Grasmere isn’t far from Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside. You can even catch the open top bus on a nice fine day.
On the doorstep of April Cottage there are walks in every direction. There are easy walks or walks for the more adventures. You could visit Alcock Tarn, Loughrigg Fell, Easedale Tarn and Silver Howe to name but a few. Take the time to take in the fabulous views and fresh air. We have provided a few maps and recommended walks in the cottage. We hope that our guests find them helpful and useful.
