Apartment in Grasmere, Lake District, Cumbria - Peaceful Riverside Location, A Short Walk From The Centre Of Grasmere Village
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 Apartment 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.
Bookings only taken for full weeks commencing on Saturdays
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Beautiful Rothay Lodge Apartment
The property was gorgeous, very spacious, spotlessly clean and very well fitted out and the location was perfect. Walking distance to the village with great restaurants and Lindsay was very responsive to a couple of questions we had. I would absolutely stay here again and am hoping to get back here next year so hope the property is available. Absolutely loved it!!!
Very comfortable and welcoming
Spent most of our time out but was a lovely place to retreat to at the end of the day.
Ideal accommodation with disabiity
The apartment was very well equipped and adapted for a disabled guest. My 86 year old father was very relaxed and coped easily moving around the spacious appartment and wet room. Facilities like this are near impossible to find in the Lake District. Grasmere is flat once you get over the initial bridge but many shops and cafes are not wheelchair friendly but we found one or two. Local Coop is five minutes walk away and very well stocked, even late on Saturday night. If weather is kind it is a lovely place to stay and owner very helpful and quick to respond to a boiler problem. Only problem was internet reception which affects TV too.
Warm and welcoming
The apartment was lovely to come back to after a day out walking. It was well equipped and very clean on our arrival.
Lindsay was great to deal with in relation to booking the apartment and offered great customer service. We enjoyed it so much we have rebooked for later in the year.
Thank you very much for your kind words, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and am looking forward to welcoming you back later on in the year.
Best wishes, Lindsay.
Perfect stay with elderly mother
We recently spent a week at Rothay Lodge Apartment. The apartment is very comfortable and is very well furnished and equipped. The location suited us very well, within easy walking distance of the restaurants, shops and pubs in the village of Grasmere.
My elderly mother was staying with us and she has restricted mobility, and cannot climb stairs. The apartment was perfect for her being all on the ground floor and the en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower was ideal. The one small issue that we had during the week (wi-fi stopped working) was immediately resolved with a phone call to Lindsay, the owner.
Lindsay was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. We definitely hope to stay there again.
Perfect place to stay..
From the moment we arrived we loved the apartment. It was warm, cosy, clean and had everything we needed for a perfect week away.
They had even put a Christmas tree up in the lounge!
It is in a great location and we enjoyed our time away. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed - from washing up liquid to kitchen roll ! The communication and booking process with the owner was excellent and we would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.
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
6 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.
