Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We chose this cottage over staying at a local hotel, partly because most hotels were booked but more importantly we wanted the freedom and space, on arrival we were delighted we made this choice. The owners Wendy & Hugh are excellent to communicate with, they are very quick in their responses and their instructions in the house on how to...

A lovely spot, tucked away down a very quiet lane with space for two cars to park off-road. The cottage is very well appointed and had everything we needed (except for the exceedingly minor oversight of cereal bowls). It's a short 5/10 min walk away from the heart of Grasmere - so has great access for shops/restaurants etc. Also very...

Management response:

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. There are definitely cereal bowls at the cottage! We can only guess that the previous guests had moved things around and you didn't come across them, but they are definitely there - somewhere! Thanks again, Wendy & Hugh Taylor

The location is peaceful and quiet but you can walk to the busy centre of Grasmere within 10 minutes. Ideal location for central lakes giving you access to many wonderful walks and fells. The cottage was very clean and well equipped with nice shower and bath which was essential after a long day walking and climbing.

About the neighbourhood
Grasmere needs little introduction, famous for being the home of William Wordsworth and now one of the Lake District's premier tourist destinations. As well as Wordsworth's home, Dove Cottage, the village has numerous shops, hotels, cafes, galleries and restaurants. For day-to-day essentials, there is a well-stocked Co-op, a newsagents, a pharmacy and a post office. And of course there is the Grasmere Gingerbread shop!

Situated at the heart of the Lake District, it is only a short drive to places such as Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness, Ullswater and the Langdale Valley. Alternatively, there is the very regular 555 bus service – passing within 250m of the cottage - linking many of these pl
