Beautiful manor house set in the stunning surroundings of Grasmere with spectacular lake views and amazing scenery to enjoy in this wonderful location.

Experience the true grandeur of a Cumbrian manor house on your next getaway, staying in this remarkable property with space for eight. Perfect for the long awaited get together of friends or family, the property can happily house a varied makeup of guests across four ever-comfortable bedrooms. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or anniversary together or simply inviting the extended family to enjoy a short break, the pretty village of Grasmere offers an abundance of thrilling activities to fill your days close by. Pack your hiking boots or mountain bikes and explore the Lake District’s namesake lakes or challenging mountain peaks. You can even bring along one canine companion to sniff out the lay of the land alongside you!

Truly traditional throughout, the high ceilings and tall bay windows in this historic holiday home lends a decadent feel to the place. The property has been thoughtfully decorated with furniture and soft furnishings that extend that feeling of decadence throughout each and every room. The ground floor comes equipped with an extremely spacious kitchen, a great spot for planning days ahead whilst preparing breakfast or packing up a lunch. The breakfast bar is a spot for enjoying morning coffee, whilst evening meals can all be enjoyed together in the adjacent dining room. Once meals have been enjoyed, retire to the lounge where a wood burner is ready to create a cosy late-night ambience. Here you can switch on the Smart TV or simply reminisce over a bottle of wine. Upstairs, you’ll find four bedrooms on the first floor, the master bedroom being a king-size with the luxury touch of its own en-suite. Two further doubles offer similar comfort and fresh white linens, whilst a bunk bedroom is the best spot for children to enjoy a sleepover night. Finally, completing the property is a pretty garden that’s set to lawn and offers a far-reaching view of the River Rothay, the perfect spot for sunny evenings.

We had a lovely stay during October half term. The view fro the sitting room is amazing, and we loved watching red squirrels and other wildlife. Its an easy walk into Grasmere, the location is great. We did struggle with the heating and hot water settings, this has been fed back to the company.

East House is in a beautiful location with gorgeous views across Grasmere. Five minutes walk to the village where youll find lots of pubs, restaurants, shops and the local coop for all your needs. Advertised enclosed garden not really dog friendly though as your pooch must be kept on lead at all times.

Warm, well resourced house. Very comfortable and plenty of space for us and our dog. It had everything we needed to relax and also to cook up a storm in the kitchen. The location was superb, just 5 minutes from the village with its shops and eateries/pubs. There are lots of walks locally and it made a perfect base for our trip.

The cottage location and lake views were fantastic. Just a 5 minute walk to Grasmere village. The size of the cottage for our party of 5 adults and 2 children was more than adequate, we had plenty of room to relax and enjoy. The log burner was lovely to have on in the evening so warm and cosy. I would definitely book again
