Residents' Afternoon

Dove Cottage & Garden

20 December 2017
2.30 - 5.00pm

Contact us to book

When William and Dorothy first arrived at Dove Cottage late on a dark winter’s afternoon on 20 December 1799, they could have had little idea that it was a moment that would be marked and celebrated every year by generations of Grasmere people.  On this special afternoon we invite all of our Grasmere neighbours to join us in Dove Cottage for mulled wine, mince pies and carols by candlelight to continue this festive tradition.
