to Grasmere in the English Lake District...
is a charming village right in the heart of the Lake District
National Park in Cumbria, England. Within easy reach are the
honeypot towns of Ambleside, Keswick, Hawkshead, Coniston, Bowness
Grasmere lake (see photograph) lies to the south of the village,
around which there are some gentle walks for those that prefer
the lower ground. For those that prefer a greater challenge,
in Grasmere you're centrally situated for taking on the craggy
peaks of the Scafell Pikes, Helvellyn, Skiddaw and the Langdale
Grasmere was once the home of the famous poet William Wordsworth;
today you can visit two of his former homes - Dove Cottage and
Rydal Mount. Also in the centre of Grasmere is St. Oswalds Church,
the churchyard of which contains the Wordsworth family graves.
