Booked

Ben Place Cottage sits in a lovely, quiet and secluded corner of Grasmere, at the very heart of the Lake District.  Originally part of a Victorian 'gentleman's residence', this two bedroom cottage has its own private sitting-out area plus parking, and enjoys fell views across to Helm Crag and Stone Arthur.  Ben Place is an easy 10 minutes walk from Grasmere village, giving ready access to the shops, cafes and restaurants, yet also giving it seclusion from the hustle and bustle of one of Lakeland's prime tourist destinations.

Sleeps 4 in 2 double bedrooms.  The cottage has an 'upside-down' layout with the living accommodation on the upper floor. Living/dining room with woodburner stove, TV, DVD player, CD player, wifi hub.  Galley kitchen with electric oven & hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. Downstairs are family bathroom with bath and shower over; two double bedrooms, one having a dressing-room alcove and en-suite bathroom with shower bath (NB the en-suite bedroom is 6'11” wide, giving approx. 11” clearance either side of the bed); and utility room, housing a freezer, washer/dryer and central heating boiler. Sitting out area and private parking.

Children aged 5 or over welcome (but please note the cottage has 2 double beds).  Sorry we do not accept children under the age of 5, as the cottage has an unfenced light well, with a drop of around 2 metres outside.  Sorry, no smoking or pets.

Around and About

Grasmere needs little introduction, famous for being the home of William Wordsworth and now one of the Lake District's premier tourist destinations.  As well as Wordsworth's home, Dove Cottage, the village has numerous shops, hotels, cafes, galleries and restaurants.

Situated at the heart of the Lake District, it is only a short drive to places such as Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness, Ullswater and the Langdale Valley.  

There are lake cruises on Windermere and Ullswater, or you can hire a rowing boat on Grasmere.  Beatrix Potter World is in Bowness and her home, Hilltop Farm is in nearby Sawrey.  For walkers, you are at the heart of the Lakeland mountains with numerous high- and low-level walks.  You can walk from the cottage to Alcock Tarn, Stone Arthur or Easedale Tarn.  Or for the more adventurous, to the Langdales, the Fairfield Horseshoe or Helvellyn, all with the possibility of returning by bus if required.
