Family holiday cottage sleeping 10 with access to the fells, for walking and outdoor adventures with friends in the Lake District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Dunmail Fell Centre, Grasmere, Cumbria, Lake District, sleeps 2-10 in 4 bedrooms.

Sleeping 10, the Dunmail Fell Centre (formerly Raise Cottage) occupies a spectacular position on the summit of Dunmail Raise near Raise Beck. With superb mountain views and immediate access to the mountains for walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts, the Centre provides the ideal base from which to explore the Central Fells, and is perfect for those considering an ascent of Helvellyn.

The Centre has played host to many groups of outdoor enthusiasts, including fell runners, swimmers and cyclists, as well as families and friends away for a holiday or long weekend break. Team building groups taking on challenges within the area are also welcome.

The Centre offers a comfortable venue for your group, with features including exposed stone work, beams, green oak, wood floors and a larch paneled wall lending considerable character. Generous windows allow plenty of light into the cottage. The sitting room has a cosy wood burner and comfy seating, and the dining room can seat the whole group comfortably. Bedrooms have 3 double beds and 2 sets of bunks, and there are plenty of bathrooms with power showers.

Philip, your host, lives nearby and can advise on the best places to explore in the nearby fells. The Centre is located between Lake Windermere and Keswick in the southern Lakes, and close to Grasmere, home to the poet Wordsworth for many years and one of the most popular destinations. The lakes themselves offer several opportunities for water-based activities including kayaking, open water swimming and rowing. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes to choose from.
