On The Map: Grasmere is located in England’s Lake District, in the northwest of the country, 45 miles south of the City of Carlisle.
Grasmere takes its name from the adjacent lake, at the heart of the England’s spectacular Lake District. The village is overlooked by Helm Crag Hill, known locally as The Lion & The Lamb or The Young Lady at the Piano (depending on which side it is viewed from!). Aside from stunning scenic beauty, Grasmere is best known for its close association with the celebrated poet, William Wordsworth. Wordsworth lived in Grasmere for fourteen years, and sometimes dined with Sir Walter Scott at The Swan, a 17th-century Coaching Inn that is still in operation today. Wordsworth described Grasmere as ‘The loveliest spot that man hath ever found. A number of popular walks begin near the centre of the village, including the ascent of Helm Crag and a longer route up to Fairfield. Grasmere draws many tourists every year, and as a result, you’ll find a variety of wonderful gift shops and places to eat in the village. Most of the buildings in the village date from the 19th or early 20th Century, with the exception of ‘Church Stile’ – a row of 17th Century cottages, which is owned by the National Trust of England.
