Wake up every morning to a beautiful view across the River Rothay to the Fairfield fells. The 'gurgling' of the river outside the window is very soothing and theraputic. We find that we sleep so well when we`re here!

 
A typical evening scene from the rear of Holly Cottage. So often while we`re sitting in the lounge, I`ll glance out of the window, then jump to my feet and run outside with the camera. Holly Cottage Grasmere - views

Our good friends from North of the border, enjoying the views from the patio. I do believe there is some liquid refreshment on the table. Hmm, it must be theirs...

 
....and these are the views we`re enjoying.

One of the big things we enjoy about Holly Cottage is the fact that its situated in the centre of Grasmere with very easy walking distance to pubs, restaurants, shops, buses etc And yet, once you walk through the gate at the front of the cottage you are transported away from the bustle of the village to the peace of the countryside.

This angle shows how closely the River Rothay runs behind Holly Cottage - literally a 'riverside' location. In spite of the river getting rather high on occasions, we have never had a flood here.
