Tarn Cottages are superbly located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, next to the tiny White Moss Tarn, on the bridleway between Grasmere and Rydal Mount. The cottage is in a peaceful, secluded location accessible by car, with a parking space. It is surrounded by woodland at the rear, with the south facing front enjoying beautiful views of Loughrigg Fell and Rydal Water.

A large part of the garden belongs to the cottage, and this is shared by mutual agreement with the other two cottages. Although secluded, the cottage is not isolated, being only a few minutes drive to the centre of Grasmere. The cottage makes an ideal base for walkers, even without using the car it is possible to set out on a variety of long walks and easy strolls.

The fells to the rear lead up to the Fairfield range of mountains, while the Loughrigg and Rydal areas provide gentle and beautiful countryside. Wordsworth's home, 'Dove Cottage' is only a few minutes walk down the lane. White Moss tarn, adjacent to the cottage, was reputably used for skating by the Wordsworth family.

For more information please go to the owners' website. The cottage offers 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedded room, 1 Z-bed, bathroom with shower, sitting room, well equipped kitchen. Electricity charged by meter reading at the end of stay
