Winter views at Brockstone Cottage

Winter views taken today at Brockstone Grasmere Cottage


Today's views from Brockstone Grasmere Cottage 

The weather is crisp and cold. The press have dubbed this cold spell "The Beast from the East" . We're on the west, so we've missed the snow and strong winds so far.

You can see that people walk past Brockstone Grasmere Cottage on the famous "Coffin Route " from Grasmere to Rydal, recently voted 27th best walk anywhere in the UK. Going right past our cottage door. No cars- just walkers. Lovely!
The ridge in the foreground of the photos runs between Loughrigg and Silver How. The snowy height in the background is Wetherlam and the Coniston Fells, some miles away.

Special Offer


You could stay here for a week from Saturday 10 March for only £490 ( reduced from £590) , of from Saturday 24 March for £590 ( reduced from £690). After that, the first available week is 7-14 July, at the rate of £845.

You may bring your dog at no extra charge.

Looking forward to daffodils

I'm looking forward to daffodils. Here I'm posting just a few of my many daffodil photos taken over the years.

Daffodils in the garden of Brockstone Grasmere Cottage.


The Lake District is famous for its daffodils. William Wordsworth's most famous poem, Daffodils is known the world over. Wordsworth owned my house, and he wrote his poetry half a mile along the lane at Dove Cottage.

We're just over a month from the Winter Solstice, and the days are getting just a little longer. Buds are pushing up through the soil at Brockstone Grasmere Cottage. Our Lake District cottage might just be your perfect holiday cottage. In March, the garden is absolutely bursting with daffodils.
