Location: From our office in Ambleside, head north on the A591 to Grasmere, passing Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake along the way. Upon reaching the mini-roundabout near Dove Cottage (Wordsworth’s former home), take the first exit and continue through the village, passing St Oswald’s Church and The Gingerbread Shop. A little further on brings you to the centre of the village with Heidis being situated on your left.
There is plenty of car parking provision within the village, including short-stay parking beside the nearby Green. The current owners rent several adjacent car parking spaces under a separate agreement from the lease being assigned.
Description: Superbly placed in the heart of beautiful Grasmere, Heidi’s Lodge offers adaptable B and B accommodation including a café with around 28 covers plus more outside, a commercial kitchen, 5 wonderfully stylish letting bedrooms all with exceptional en-suites plus 3 staff or owners en-suite bedrooms. The property is available by an assignment of a 20 year lease from 2018 at a rental of £4,835 pcm. The lease permits the premises to be used as a café, delicatessen and bed and breakfast hotel.
Heidi’s is an attractive and distinctive stone and slate built property which you cannot fail to notice as you pass through the centre of this delightful Lakeland village with its double frontage, balconies and outside seating but impressed as you may be from the roadside, a visit inside will leave you in no doubt that this is a rare opportunity.
The main café area is bright and welcoming and has around 28 covers, with approximately 8 more outside. Behind the counter is a very handy little prep area separate from the main commercial kitchen which is at the rear of the property and is very well equipped, supplemented by a further large preparation area, which has seen service as an owners sitting room in the past. The licensed café also doubles as the splendid breakfast room for the overnight B&B guests who can enter via a separate central main hallway to access the luxurious bedrooms on the two stories above. There is also a small office and a guests toilet on the ground floor.
The five double letting bedrooms are all individually styled and immaculately presented, and everyone will be impressed not only by the quality of the en-suite bathrooms, but also the sheer size of them – offering comfort and relaxation in equal measure. Two of these bedrooms also enjoy large private balconies, and one forms a unique two storey suite with its own sitting room, four piece bathroom and a top floor bedroom (which many might consider an ideal owners suite). There are wonderful fell views to be enjoyed from many rooms, including to Stone Arthur, Seat Sandal and Silver How.
There are three staff bedrooms (fast becoming a "must-have" feature for this kind of business in The Lake District) although these could also equally suit as private owners accommodation if desired, and each again has excellent en-suite facilities.
