About the neighbourhood
Rothay Lodge Apartment is within the Grasmere conservation area which is in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Set only a few minutes walk away from the centre of picturesque Grasmere village but in a peaceful spot in a breathtaking setting alongside the River Rothay and with uninterrupted views of the surrounding fells and valley. Many lovely walks can be started straight from the apartment.
There are shops, restaurants and pubs in the village and the Michelin starred restaurant at Forest Side is just a few minutes walk away.
Getting around
There is an excellent bus service from Grasmere to Ambleside, Windermere, Kendal and Keswick with a bus stop outside Rothay Lodge Apartment.
Besides the many fell walks starting from Grasmere, there are some delightful low level walks including a footpath around the lake. Some walks, such as the riverside footpath are wheelchair accessible.
Car not needed
How to get there
Railway: Windermere: 10.0 km
From Ambleside take the A591 towards Grasmere.
Continue past the lake, straight on at the mini-roundabout and take the next left turn at the Swan Hotel towards Grasmere village along Swan Lane (B5287).
After about 200m, immediately before the bridge over the River Rothay, turn left onto the private drive at the sign to Rothay Lodge. Car parking is at the end of this short drive, alongside the River Rothay.
