Just a stone's-throw from Bassenthwaite Lake is in a beautiful quiet corner of the Lakes. The cottage is very tastefully & thoughtfully decorated, and is well equipped. We availed ourselves of the 'English Breakfast' and 'BBQ' packs. We relaxed immediately.
We’ve recently returned from a lovely break at Groom's Cottage in Uldale. This delightful cottage is in the middle of beautiful countryside, surrounded by fields. The garden is a real suntrap and the trees are just full of chirping birds! The cottage owner, Debs, offers a variety of extras that can be ordered in advance so we ordered the BBQ pack. Luckily the sun shone on our first night so we had a great BBQ in the sunny garden. By the third night the weather had turned but we were very happy to sit by the cosy log burner in the lounge. The cottage has recently been renovated to a very high standard. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for a short break and even comes complete with home baking, courtesy of Debs! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Grooms Cottage and can’t wait to return.
We arrived to stay for the weekend in the middle of our UK roadtrip. It was the perfect place for a break and to re-charge the batteries. The cottage was beautifully kitted out and absolutely nothing was missing. We ordered some food before arrival which was waiting in the fridge and also complimentary goodies were waiting too, all very good food. The cottage is on a farm so don't be put off by the farm noises and smells. The local pub is good (fab local beer all around the area, especially in the pub in Hesket Newmarket) and the tea room room is good too. It offers a perfect base to explore the northern part of the lake district with its beautiful views and walks. Do go down the local lanes which open up views off the beaten track. Debs the owner was extremely helpful. A wonderful stay in a beautiful spot.
We wanted a modern place in a quiet and beautiful area of the Lake District, and Grooms Cottage fit this criteria perfectly.
The pictures do not do it justice! Whilst it is a small place, it's very cosy and big enough for two people. The garden is quite big, and full of chirping birds.
The area is very, very quiet, apart from the odd cow mooing and a tractor going past. Phone service was limited (as can be expected in the Lakes!), but the WiFi of the cottage was amazing!
There is everything you could need, including a comfortable bed, great kitchen with modern appliances, and a modern wet room. The shower was slightly difficult to use, as there is no door and the water travels on the floor.
One highlight was the gorgeous cake and bread that greeted us when we arrived! Both were wonderful and delicious, and it added a personal touch to Grooms Cottage.
Ultimately this place is wonderful, and we would definitely love to stay again! Thank you for having us!!
