Grasmere was once the home of William Wordsworth. You can visit two of his former homes, Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. As you enter Grasmere from the south (Ambleside) direction you are on Stock Lane, a car park is on your right. Parking is also at the adjacent school at weekends and holidays. The first part is a 2 mile exploratory loop of the village returning to the car park before leaving again to visit Dove Cottage, then Rydal via the coffin road and returning via lakeside paths.
