Grasmere Lake Feb 16, 2017
Wordsworth described this area as "'The most loveliest spot that man hath found' -- his favourite destination was the small island in the lake -- this is privately owned now so don't land there if you hire a boat.

If you walk from Grasmere village around the west side of the lake (on the road to Rydal Water) - at the time of writing there's a small cafe that offers great views of the lake -- my photo was taken from that cafe -- you can hire rowing boats from there if you're feeling energetic, or just sit and have a drink or snack as you admire tranquil Grasmere lake.

Directions: On the A591, south of Thirlmere and north of Windermere.

I walked through here as part of a very long walk. Such a beautiful area. Stopped at Tweedies and sat outside for a pint.

The fairest place on earth Jun 09, 2005
Another of the stops in the Lake District National Park was in the small town of Grasmere. With a population of around a thousand, most of this community is seen along the main road. Shops and eating establishments and a gingerbread shop are the main part of this lazy little town. The little church of St. Oswald is located just around a small bend in the road past the small stone bridge about fifty yards on up the way. This small 13th century church has been updated and is still used today. And in the rear where the cemetery grounds are located you will find the family burial site of the famous poet William Wordsworth. He has been credited with saying that Grasmere is “the loveliest spot that man has ever found.” While we were there in the spring with the green grass and flowers blooming it was hard to disagree. :)
