Bakers Retreat Cottage

Grasmere, Lake District


Situated in the centre of the Lake Districts most popular village, Grasmere, Bakers Retreat is perfect for a family holiday at any time of year. Converted from, as the name suggests, the old bakery, the property has been updated with all modern comforts, including en-suites in each bedroom. A few minutes walk brings you to the shops, restaurants, pubs and the lake.

The first floor apartment is centrally heated and comprises:

The large dining/lounge with picture windows and open views towards Helm Crag is perfect for enjoying time together, comfy sofas are set around the TV and DVD player, electric stove fire and the large dining table is perfect for enjoying a home cooked meal together.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a sumptuous meal with electric oven/hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and island breakfast table.

Double bedroom and twin bedrooms both with en-suite shower room, hand basin and WC.

Please note there is a £100 refundable deposit per week.



“When you find a gem the temptation is to keep it secret, but in the interest of fair play ……  Bakers Retreat is in a perfect location within the town of Grasmere.  Access to wonderful hikes from the front door (Easedale Tarn, Helm Crag and Sergeant Man).  Tweedies pub and the excellent Jungle Room restaurant (remember to make reservations as it is always busy) are just a few steps away.  Reserved parking (not to be taken lightly in Grasmere) for two cars is a minute away.  The accommodation is tastefully decorated to a high standard and very comfortable.  The kitchen is fully equipped.  And if you want to stay in, then the view from the windows looking out towards Helm Crag is breathtaking.”
