The Space

Dove Cottage is the perfect epitome of a traditional British countryside cottage bringing an element of comfort and homeliness to your stay.

A haven of tranquillity for any party, a stay in Dove Cottage is truly serene.  Your own private patio where your hot tub sits offers postcard panoramas over the Cumbrian fells and historic Graythwaite Hall. You may just spot a lamb or two in the Summertime.

The living room with its own log burning stove overlooks the park and Hall, with uninterrupted peace and silence on its own little track up the hill beyond the central estate. Dove is a much sought-out property for its beauty and is named for the famous Wordsworth house in our nearby village of Grasmere – a must-see during your stay and just a short journey across the Lakes.

The Cottage is just a short stroll away from the shared Graythwaite facilities, which includes the Home Farm shop and the shared swimming pool which you can book into during your stay. Be enchanted by the magic of Lake Windermere which is only a 5-minute drive away, as well as the famed Estate walk up to ‘The View’ just through the forest behind the property. You will not be disappointed.
