Why we love it!

" We love Rockwood because it’s nestled into the landscape and couldn’t feel more Cumbrian! You can walk out of the front door straight onto the fells or down into the beautiful village of Grasmere. It’s spacious enough to host large families and is pet friendly with a brand new hot tub for post walk relaxation. "

Pull onto the private driveway, with space for 2 cars here, and take in the beautiful surroundings of Rockwood. Sitting pretty in slate and stone, a gorgeous home even at first glance…just wait until you see inside.

Step through into the entrance hall, the perfect sanctuary from any unkind Lake District weather, and leave your muddy boots behind.

Turn right and slip through into the open-plan living-kitchen-diner. Serve up a family feast from the well-equipped country kitchen. Take a glimpse out the large window overlooking the craggy rocks beyond the courtyard and hot tub to the rear. Supremely sociable, the kitchen opens out onto a spacious dining area, with room for 11 guests around the large table. Next to the dining table is a perfectly located log burning stove emitting warmth and cheer – a real focal point in the wintertime!

Step through the double doors into the living room. Curl up and relax on an armchair with a good book and enjoy views of the Lakeland fells and woodland that surround Rockwood. Or stretch out on the cosy sofa in front of the modern fireplace – the perfect place to spend the evening playing board games and relaxing with the whole family.

Sneak a peek at the cosy snug room, set beyond double, glazed doors. The perfect den for teenagers or children; complete with bean bags, a game console and a TV – close enough to keep an eye on but delightfully self-contained! A desk is built in beneath the window in here, and Rockwood also boasts super-fast broadband – if you are looking for the perfect place to work whilst on holiday, this traditional cottage ticks all the boxes.

Take the carpeted staircase up from the kitchen to discover the three bedrooms on the first floor. Turning left, enter into the first of three warm and welcoming bedrooms. Slip out onto the landing, where you’ll find two bathrooms.

Continue along the landing and off to the left, this bedroom has a king size bed. Spy fields, woodland and fells through the front-facing window; so peaceful.

Across the landing, the master bedroom also soaks up these radiant views, which can even be admired from the comfort of your bed. Complete with a super-king-size bed.

Retreat back down the stairs and through the kitchen to the entrance hall once more. Turn right and slip through to discover the rest of what Rockwood has to offer. A two-bedroom cottage-style annexe lies here. The annexe is perhaps the perfect place for teenagers to have their own independence whilst on a family holiday!

The annexe is a bright and airy space filled with light, yet cosy and atmospheric. Curl up on the sofa in the living room and watch all your favourite films on Netflix with your friends.

Prepare a hearty meal in the comprehensive kitchenette, containing an integrated under-counter fridge, electric oven and hob and sink. Step through the kitchenette to find a downstairs shower room.

Peep through to the first of two bedrooms, cosy and quirky in shape, this bedroom houses a triple bunk bed (double on the bottom bunk and single on top). In the second bedroom, discover a king-size bed with its high window and polished wooden floors.



“The whole valley is your garden”

Step out onto the rear courtyard, where the tall rock face rises up, creating a warm sun trap and dramatic backdrop. The area is decked with a large hot tub, perfect for spending time with your family or friends. The driveway to the side offers comfortable parking for two cars.


Local area:

A comfortable stroll from the thriving village centre and its intoxicating historic atmosphere of romantic poets, buildings and the scent of Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread, Rockwood is quietly set along one of the quietest country lanes in Grasmere, home to only a handful of houses.

Location: A little bit about Grasmere

What more can be said about Grasmere? Wordsworth once described it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”, and we are not inclined to disagree! Sit beneath the canopy of the mature Yew Tree beside the poet’s final resting place in the quaint 13th century church of St Oswald’s. Alongside, the gentle flow of the River Rothay tinkles by, as the drifting aroma of Grasmere gingerbread evokes nostalgia for an era gone by.
