About Grasmere



Grasmere is a village, and popular tourist destination, in the centre of the English Lake District. It takes its name from the adjacent lake, and is associated with the Lake Poets. The poet William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere for fourteen years, described it as "the loveliest spot that man hath ever found".

Before 1974, Grasmere lay within the former county of Westmorland, but today it is part of the county of Cumbria
