Luxurious holiday accommodation in The Lake District and  Exuma The Bahamas

A TRADITIONAL LAKELAND COTTAGE FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN THE HEART OF THE LAKES
 
Rockwood is a traditional Lakeland cottage, buikt about 1900, which nestles into the hillslide below Helm Crag, about 10 minutes walk from the beautiful, historic village of Grasmere. Lying on a quiet country lane, along which cows amble in the mornings for milking, this is the perfect spot to discover the true character of the Lake District.  
The cottage offers spacious accommodation for up to 10 people, plus two extra kids.  There are four double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms,  two comfortable lounges, an open plan kitchen diner , a separate kitchenette, a family bathroom and a second bathroom with shower.  Fully centrally heated, you can also enjoy sitting in front of the traditional log burner in the dining area - logs are provided!
We offer one week stays, 3 night stays (outside school holidays), and a pet is welcome by prior agreement.
Grasmere village is a special place, full of characterful pubs and restaurants, quirky shops and excellent museums. It is also a great place for starting so many different walks, be they strenuous full on hikes, gentle strolls for the kids or something inbetween
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Rockwood is just 10 minutes walk from beautiful Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth. It lies on a sleepy lane at the foot of Helm Crag.
