About Lindsay Rogers
We loved holidaying in the Lake District but never found a self-catering cottage that was suitable as one of our children uses a wheelchair. We bought Rothay Lodge & Apartment in 2003 and made both properties wheelchair accessible and provided everything that we would want from a holiday home.
Lindsay Rogers purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Lindsay Rogers chose Grasmere
Grasmere is not only a lovely village and good base for fell walking but there are some lovely low level walks which are suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs

Perfect location and ideal accommodation
Another enjoyable stay at this family holiday home in the heart of the English lakes. The views from every window are breath taking but enjoyed most from within the garden with the sound of the burbling ghyll which passes through and the adjacent river rothay. Every detail appears to have been considered, from the ice machine to the stack of logs for the wood burners, to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay for family and friends alike.
Amazing house in an amazing location.
Beautiful home which perfectly catered for our holiday needs of a family of four including an 8month old. Perfect location just a short walk into the centre of Grasmere village. Due to the sunny weather the stream in the garden had dried up, but can’t complain about that!
Perfect house, perfect week
This 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom house was perfect for the celebration of my mother’s 85th birthday! There was enough space both indoor and outdoor for us to spread out and relax. We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen to cook up some delicious meals and the big birthday meal was next door at the Rothay Garden Inn, which I would recommend. My mum is getting a little frail now, so the stair lift and the accessible bathroom made this holiday possible. We had brilliant weather all week and so the party had many memorable long walks and scenic car rides. The house is close to everything you need. Perfect.
Lovely, private home with the most amazing views
My favorite memories of Rothay Lodge will be our family meals each evening outside while enjoying the beautiful gardens and the amazing views of the mountains beyond. This is a very special place, and it served our family of ten (2 grandparents, 4 parents, 4 young children) quite well. It had all the amenities we needed and was a perfect distance from the center of Grasmere. Anything within the village is easily walkable, but the home is away from the tourist hustle. We cooked most of our meals at home, and the kitchen supplied all the cooking utensils we needed. A lovely home, and I hope we will be able to return again!
Lovely house in Grasmere
This is a wonderful house for larger groups to spend some time together. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms upstairs and a wet room downstairs it was very convenient for our party of 4 couples. The house is only a short walk into Grasmere and the bus stop is just at the end of the lane, very handy as we didn’t want to drive everywhere. We were very lucky with our week as the weather was glorious. Would highly recommend this property
A wonderful property
This was our third stay at Rothay Lodge. We are a group of eight friends and we love this house. it is wonderfully placed for Grasmere and is beautifully maintained. All the bedrooms have en suite facilities, the kitchen is well equipped and the lounge really comfy. There are 2 woodburning stoves downstairs and also an extra wet room . Lindsay is a wonderful host and the booking is effortless and you are kept well informed. I would recommend this house to anyone and we have already booked for 2019.
There is a beach area at the South end of Grasmere lake which is on a popular walk around the lake which takes about an hour.
The nearest airport is Manchester, about a 2 hour drive away. The nearest train station is at Windermere, a few miles away and with a good bus service to Grasmere.
5 minutes to walk to the centre of Grasmere village
The main attraction of Grasmere is its position in the centre of the Lake District National Park with many walks starting there. The picturesque village itself has plenty of restaurants and pubs for eating.
