Going on holiday in Grasmere

Rothay Garden Hotel & Riverside Spa 4*
Renowned for its romantic vistas and wild, remote surroundings, Grasmere is delightful all year round. The peak travel season is in high summer, particularly from July to August during the school holidays. Hotel prices rise and rooms sell out, so prepare to book early. If you'd like to avoid the crowds, stick to warmer months like June and September, when there’s less footfall. The entire period from spring through early autumn is a great time for hikers and ramblers. While winter months can be exceedingly cold, Grasmere remains a warm and welcoming location with roaring pub fires. Just prepare and pack for rain, snow and muddy trails. Most attractions remain open during the low season, though some have reduced hours.

Your best hotel in Grasmere: how to get there and make your booking

How to get to Grasmere

Grasmere is a small village in the Lake District without a train station. Those arriving by public transport can travel into Windermere by rail and then catch a bus. However, most visitors favour car access, as this will give you more freedom to explore the surrounding landscapes. Grasmere is accessible via the A591, which connects with the M6 motorway. There has been a big drive to reduce personal vehicles in the Lake District over the past decade. This has seen more public buses connecting beauty spots. Services are reduced in the low season, however. The nearest international airports to Grasmere include Manchester Airport and Leeds-Bradford Airport. Both offer car rental services for overseas travellers.
