Grounds & Gardens

The Garden

Set in an acre of lawns, orchards, and gardens, Lake View has private access to Grasmere lake-shore and the River Rothay. We are lucky enough to have fishing rights, and the perfect spot to launch paddle boards.

Grasmere Lakeshore

We are dog-friendly, and love having children to stay with us. We have a quirky double decker bus in the grounds, which can be booked by special request.

Lake View Country House

We are privileged to have a badger sett in our garden. They are very shy, but in the morning you can watch their nocturnal activities filmed using our badger-cam! We also have a resident red squirrel who likes to entertain guests during breakfast.

The beauty of the Lake District National Park is right on our doorstep, from the peaks of Helm Crag to the gentle meander of Grasmere lake and Rydal Water. It is possible to spend your whole holiday walking direct from our door, without ever having to get in your car. We are a very short stroll from Grasmere's historic sites, restaurants and shops.
