Nestled in a quiet backwater of romantic Grasmere, White Gables is a fine example of an Arts and Crafts property just oozing original features, character, and the unquestionable charm of the era. Beautifully presented with much attention to detail throughout, White Gables is an incredibly special retreat, a place to spend precious time with your loved ones and create wonderful holiday memories together.

Set against a backdrop of glorious scenery, Grasmere is a walker’s paradise; from the lower slopes of Silver How and Helm Crag to the heights of the Fairfield Horseshoe, the commanding views, so inspirational to the Victorian poets, remain incredible to this day. Do pay a visit to Dove Cottage, now part of the Wordsworth Museum and sample the world-famous Grasmere Gingerbread, the perfect sustenance for those walkers and cyclists among you.

Several interesting gift shops and renowned galleries are on hand from where to purchase a memento of your trip, the Heaton Cooper Studio being a favourite of ours and if you’re looking for a venue for a celebration dinner, the highly acclaimed Jumble Room is a must – be sure to book in advance of your stay to avoid disappointment.


Stunning Features are Married with Traditional Comfort and Style

Within strides of the village centre, White Gables has a beautiful, covered entrance porch leading into an impressive living and dining space with notable vaulted ceiling, glorious Inglenook with open fireplace and cosy bench seating to the side. A wealth of solid wood adorns the room and French doors lead out from here to the cottage style garden. A contemporary kitchen is very well fitted, complete with a small breakfast bar for casual breakfasts or lunches. A utility beyond here houses the laundry facilities and provides further access to the outside – it’s also a great spot for the dog bed!

The first of the two bedrooms sit on the ground floor, a delightful twin with striking soft furnishings and access to a separate shower room with basin and WC. On the first floor sits a superb double bedroom displaying interesting wood features of the era with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment over a corner bath, basin and WC.

Outside there’s parking for 3 cars and a delightful garden with furniture provided. Although enclosed, please don’t assume the grounds are ‘dog proof’ and do keep your dogs on a lead, thank you.
