    In the early 1800s, William Wordsworth bought The Coach House (and White Moss House next door) for his son. Families will be delighted with the 1-acre of lawned private gardens with mature trees, which features an old quarry cave looming behind the house. With views over to Loughrigg Fell you really feel like you are in the heart of the Lake District. Red squirrel and deer are regular visitors to the gardens, and with large French doors in the living room you have the perfect spot to watch as they scurry by. For the days you just want to relax at the cottage, The Coach House is ideally equipped with large bedrooms, stylish bathrooms and a spacious open plan living area.
    The popular White Moss walk starts just a couple of minutes’ stroll outside the front door, and before the walk you can take a quick peek at the waterfall found just outside the garden walls. Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake are both an easy stroll direct from the cottage.
    The pretty village of Grasmere is just down the road, where you can explore Dove Cottage, famous as one of Wordsworth’s earlier homes where he and his sister spent 8 years of ‘plain living, but high thinking’. It was here he wrote his most famous work, ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’, and is now a fantastic museum about the writer. Grasmere also offers a selection of bars and restaurants, tea rooms and independent shops, where you can try some of the world famous Grasmere gingerbread. Slightly further afield, but not too far, explore Ambleside and Windermere, where you can enjoy steamer rides, the World of Beatrix Potter, rowing or swing amongst the treetops at Go Ape. Beach 22 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    This is in a great location for walking and with Grasmere and Ambleside in easy reach you don't need to use the car unless you wish to travel further afield. The cottage is well equipped and great for wildlife on your doorstep with abundant birds visiting thanks to the bird feeders and even red squirrels in the garden! A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting.

    We enjoyed our stay at the Coach House. It’s location was excellent with good walks from the door and it’s proximity to Grasmere and Ambleside. We really enjoyed watching (and feeding) the birds and red squirrels. We did think that the place could be cleaner and there is some damp in one of the bathrooms and a bedroom. Things that could be resolved to make this an excellent holiday experience.

    Lovely cottage - a few minor extras in the kitchen could improve things, I.e. a measuring jug, more than 4 dishwasher tablets for a weeks stay! - but it was clean and in a lovely location.

    Excellent cottage in an amazing location. Plenty of internal space for a family and lots of outdoor space in the mini forest garden. Great walks straight from the door. Not mentioned in the description but the TV has a built in DVD player, Netflix and YouTube, welcome bonus! Also if you like birds you could sit and watch them all day in the garden, we spotted 13 different types over the week.

    We have just returned from 5 days at this truly lovely cottage. It has everything you might need for a very comfortable stay, with a bottle of wine and a tin of shortbreads to welcome you. We parked the car on the first night and apart from going out for two delicious meals , did not use it till we left. The weather was cold and dry , so we walked out in every direction ,from the cottage. This has been one of the best short breaks we have ever had as a family, in this country. We will return.
