Grasmere (Lake) :: NY3306

Grasmere (“lake or pool surrounded by grass”) is one of the smaller lakes in the Lake District. It gives its name to the nearby village of Grasmere which is immediately to the north of the lake.

The lake is just under one mile in length and covers an area of approximately ¼ square miles. It is both fed and drained by the River Rothay, which flows through the village before entering the lake, and then exits downstream into nearby Rydal Water, beyond which it continues into Windermere.

The waters are navigable, with private boats allowed and rowing boats for hire, but powered boats are prohibited. The lake contains a single island, known as The Island.
