  • "Lovely week in Hollens Cottage despite the weather."

    House was lovely. Lots of the paintwork recently done and the whole place finished to a high standard. Well appointed, great location, pretty surroundings, very comfortable. Highly recommended...

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do want guests to feel comfortable and ‘at home’. Thanks for your feedback Wendy Corrie Property Owner

  • "Dirty crockery."

    TV not connected so patrons need to bring a lap top and connection lead to access their own Sky / Netflix, etc accounts. Bees nest in roof at back of the house so patrons need to be careful leaving windows and doors open. This does need dealing with as some patrons may have a relatable allergy. Comfortable and spacious. Great location.

  • "Lovely property great location, marked down only due to dirty glass in cupboard, came clean after put through dishwasher, washer needs a clean, had a little trouble with WiFi password due to misreading of code, maybe printing it will make it clearer if it's a 1 I or l."

    Overall didn't detract from holiday as we all had a great time, weather helped glorious sunshine all week.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We will pass your comments on. We hope to welcome you again soon. The owner relations team - Lakelovers Property Owner

  • "The property was finely situated, with excellent views, and had lovely neighbours."

    The house was spick-and-span, and adequately spacious for our needs. The paved garden was actually bigger than advertised and can comfortably sit five persons [round the two small tables]. The following has to do with Sykes, or those managing the property: They were most accommodating, and came back with answers to all our queries. However: 1) It took a couple of days for the broken fan in the upstairs WC to be fixed. 2) The answers received when inquiring about the property were not accurate: there were 10 steps to lower bedroom - not five [that can make a big difference for an elderly person]; there were plenty of games for children [so taking our own along was utterly superfluous]; there is a route to Alcock Tarn adjacent to the property! :)

  • "Beautiful cottage in a fantastic central location."

    Fully equipped with everything you'd need . Plenty of walking straight from the front door and shops and pubs minutes away, and buses to anywhere further afield just a short stroll away.

  • "Spacious and comfortable and very well equipped."

    Well located for access into Grasmere village and with beautiful views from most windows. Our only slight regret was that there was no facility on the TV for i-player or other catch-up services.

    i player and Netflix are available on the Smart tv in the lounge. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    One fewer guest than we had planned due to their work commitments changing last minute, so for the three of us it was very roomy. Thanks for the last minute availability. Is there anything you could do about the weather? ;-)

    Sadly not. You could try again. Usually drier in April, may and June Property Owner

  • "Wonderful cottage close to Grasmere village."

    The views are fantastic from the cottage with lots of walks available from the cottage. The property retains a quaint feel to it. Large kitchen with all mod cons and ample space in other rooms. We had a great week there - if we were being very picky suggest the upstairs room ceiling may have small amount of damp from the roof guttering and whilst 3 small cars can be parked easily enough it would be difficult to park 3 larger cars but overall we loved our stay there.

The property

This characterful country cottage with exposed beams overlooks the Vale of Grasmere towards Silver Howe and Helm Crag.

Set over three floors, Hollens Cottage is a true walkers paradise, with a host of walks straight from the door, this cottage provides high quality accommodation to family and friends.

Enter on the ground floor where the hall leads into the sitting room with beamed ceiling and spectacular views of the famous ‘Lion and Lamb’.

Continue onto the country kitchen with dining area and French doors onto the private patio area, a peaceful spot for dining al fresco.

Also, on the ground floor is the master king-size bedroom and modern bathroom.

Downstairs to the lower ground level is one comfortable double bedroom, shower room and access to the rear garden that contains a utility room for storing muddy walking boots and bikes.

Upstairs to the first floor are the twin bedroom and single bedroom, plus cloakroom with WC.

Grasmere is renowned for its rural charms, its links with the famous poet William Wordsworth and of course Sarah Nelson’s Grasmere Gingerbread.

Visit Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage on the outskirts of the village, and then take a stroll to the centre of the village where he is laid to rest with other members of the Wordsworth family.

Grasmere itself is a charming village to spend a holiday in the Lakes, there are art galleries to peruse, cafes to sample and many a hike to be completed.

This central location is perfect for exploring some of the hidden gems on offer, take a walk to Rydal Caves just 2.2 miles from the centre of the village or for serious walkers the starting point for Helvellyn is only a short drive away in Thirlmere.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


  • Ambleside 5 miles
  • Windermere 9 miles
  • Keswick 13 miles

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family has been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century, and Grasmere Lake. Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere, and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
