Location & Directions

Grasmere is located in the very heart of the Lake District and easily reached from the M6. If you happen to be a Google Maps user then the position of Little Parrock on their system is incorrect. They have it on the right road but it is shown at the point on the road that they did not go beyond. The map below, however, is correct if you use the red marker.
