Grasmere accommodation in the Lake District

Grasmere is probably Cumbria's most popular village, thanks to William Wordsworth (1770-1850). Today Grasmere is totally given over to the tourist industry, with plenty of gift shops, and places to eat and stay. Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century, though the farms around Grasmere are much older. The Church dates from the 13th Century. Grasmere lake can be found to the south of the village, allowing plenty of opportunities for more relaxed, gentle walks rather than being challenged by the hilly grounds surrounding Grasmere.
