“Great cottage in a fabulous location - the perfect spot for a family holiday.”5 of 5 stars
Reviewed November 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013 The cottage was in the perfect location for a family holiday that included family members from 10 years to 89 years old and large enough to accommodate us all comfortably.Being right in the heart of Grasmere meant that my mum and my younger daughter could both get to the shops and cafes very easily. But as the cottage is on the banks of the river with views over to Butter Crag it never felt as if we were in the town at all.

The cottage was the right combination of comfortable and practical and had everything we needed. And Martin was helpful without being intrusive.
All in all a great place to stay.

Stayed here for a long weekend over May bank holiday. The cottage is fantastic , spread over 3 floors. Set in a gorgeous location in the beautiful village of Grasmere. The cottage is right next to the river with an outdoor seating area ideal for bbq's. 3 good sized bedrooms, living room and a kitchen with everything you'll need. Friendly, helpful owner as well. Would love to return
