We are sure you will love Fairy Glen - a delightfully spacious and characterful family home in an ideal location on the edge of picturesque Grasmere village. Built in the mid 19thC the property has been sympathetically updated whilst retaining many original features and is sure to please anyone looking for a larger holiday home for either an extended family or a number of couples wishing to stay together. There is much to do in the immediate area and no need to use the car on a daily basis with shops and local services just along the road, plenty of eating places and various good pubs close by you will have all your day to day needs on hand. Walks from the door are too many to mention with both rambles and high level peaks accessible.
Grasmere makes a splendid base for a holiday in any season and is always sought after being right in the heart of the lakes. Make sure you visit the Wordsworth museum and Dove Cottage and see the local churchyard where Wordsworth is buried. Rowing boats are available on Grasmere Lake in season - beautiful for a picnic on a sunny day.
