Grasmere, Lake District

We stopped off at Grasmere on the way to our hotel. It’s a shame it was only a fleeting visit as the village looked so lovely, I’d like to come back another time to explore this part of the Lake District further. We did manage to tick off the main attractions though – Grasmere Gingerbread probably being the top one. The shop is so small you can only fit a couple of people in at a time!

We also walked round the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden and even though it was the wrong time of year to see them in bloom, it was still a lovely place to walk around. The poet, William Wordsworth, once lived here in Grasmere and he and his family are buried in the churchyard. There is a path made from stones that people have bought with their names on which was just being completed when we were there.
