Reviewed 6 May 2014

A really nice village to visit with cafes , pubs and restaurants. The car parking can be expensive but plenty of places offer free parking if you eat there. Really worth a visit as is the old Alton Bank house with the great woodland walks and great activities for kids..even get free tee and coffee.

“More a shopping experience with plants!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

As well as all we have come to expect in a garden centre these days there is a good range of kitchen and gift ware as well as some much more unusual clothing items than you find in the run of the mill.

“Grasmere village”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

This is an absolutly stunning area.The village itself is beautiful,so nice to walk around,the shops are really so good,the cafes,pleasent staff,food really good.I visited travelling by the famous 555 bus,the driver was so informative,telling us just what we were looking at on the journey.wish I knew his name,he deserves to be commended.Grasmere is in the English Lake District,although Grasmere is quite small,so much to see and enjoy.I would recommend a visit to anyone,especially overseas visitors,as so many have wrong views of the UK

“Daffodils and a lot more too...”
Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

This is a good place to shop. There are clothes and gifts to suit most needs and tastes and a great selection of plants and gardening essentials.

There is an excellent cafe too.

Directly opposite the church where Wordsworth is buried.
