Perfectly located romantic first-floor apartment in the heart of Grasmere

Wordsworth described Grasmere as ‘the loveliest spot that man hath ever found’ – well, let us introduce you to the very lovely spot that is Gingerbread Nook! Perfectly located in the heart of romantic Grasmere, this first-floor apartment has been totally transformed by the new owners to provide cosy, contemporary, high-quality facilities, ideal for that special ‘just the two of you’ break away. Perched above the village green to the front and the babbling River Rothay behind, the location couldn’t be more idyllic. With private, off-road parking for one car, simply park up here at Gingerbread Nook and explore this beautiful part of Lakeland.

Grasmere offers many fine routes for walking and cycling, the slopes of the famous Helm Crag or Lion and The Lamb, as it’s fondly called, literally minutes from the front door. The village is well served by a great selection of pubs and cafes, The Jumble Room and Tweedies Bar being firm favourites with locals and holidaymakers alike. Have a mooch around a number of interesting galleries and pick up a memento of your trip, perhaps a scenic watercolour from The Heaton Cooper Studio or a vibrant mug from Herdy, featuring the Lakeland Herdwick sheep. No visit to Grasmere is complete without sampling a piece of the world-famous Grasmere Gingerbread, perfect for packing into your rucksack and enjoying at the top of a mountain.


Perfect place to watch the sunset whilst enjoying your favourite tipple

Gingerbread Nook is accessed by way of an external staircase with a secure entrance hall; step into the newly designed kitchen, a modern take on a traditional shaker style with fully integrated Bosch appliances of dishwasher, microwave, electric oven, induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment and wine rack, all wrapped in cool Quartz. The breakfast bar is complimented by dimmable pendant lighting for those cosy dinners in.

The comfortable lounge has an armchair chair and footstool strategically placed in the large bay window overlooking the village green and the picturesque fells beyond; the perfect place to watch the sunset whilst enjoying your favourite tipple. The deep-cushioned sofa sits in front of the large SMART TV and the apartment benefits from unlimited WiFi.

The carpeted bedroom has a king-size bed dressed in quality linens to ensure a good night’s sleep, with modern, wooden blinds completing the romantic look. The stylish walk-in shower room has a basin with illuminated mirror above, toilet and heated towel rail.

Outside, there is a private car park, with a designated parking space for Gingerbreak Nook right outside your front door. There is also shared access to a handy utility room on the ground floor with a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.

  • Elvina says:

    Quiet, clean and modern apartment just off of Grasmere high street. Perfect location for exploring the Lake District. Very convenient to have allocated parking. This is a snug space that is perfect for using it as a base for exploring rather than spending long periods inside. Would recommend 🙂
