Grasmere Village, English Lake District

My personal Blog with Photos and information from around Grasmere village in the English Lake District. Grasmere has many claims to fame. Home of the famous Grasmere Gingerbread, Home of the first Story Teller Laureate Taffy Thomas, and former home to William Wordsworth. And much more. This is my attempt to share our unique village with you.

We get visitors from far and wide to Grasmere, some with limited time. If you would like me to help you plan your trip I am a Grasmere Tripbod and can be booked through their website. I am also also happy to take you on several Grasmere walks available through the Pocketvillage website. Links to both are on this blog.

If visiting Grasmere you can usually find me in Grasmere’s newest place to visit, the wonderful National Trust property Alan Bank. Only a short stroll from the centre of the village, take the lane to the side of the Miller Howe Cafe, do call in and say hello. Lots of things for children to do what ever the weather, art, nature, rope swings and more. And the adults aren’t forgot, with free tea and coffee and outstanding views. National Trust members free, a small charge for non members. Well worth a visit.

    Myself and my Husband have been coming to the Lakes since we were children. Now that we have a child of our own, just turned 5, we are moving our lives up to this wonderful area as we can not think of a better place to raise our family. Steeped in beauty and history, we can’t wait to start living our lives in this wonderful area. Grasmere being in our hearts as a special place, we are looking forward to returning for good this time. X 🙂

      It is a wonderful place to raise a child. Excellent schools in the area and most important of all, freedom to run and jump on the fells. Hope you settle in quickly and enjoy living in this beautiful part of the country. You may like to look at my other blog too for ideas of places to visit throughout the Lake District. Hope the move goes well 🙂
