  • "A very comfortable and cosy place to spend a low key Christmas."

    We enjoyed the central location and having a dedicated car parking space was a bonus. The views were incredible from every window and we did several walks straight from the apartment, no need to use the car. The bus stop just yards away is also useful. The apartment was very well equipped and nicely decorated. We would certainly consider staying again.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas at High Raise so much. All your lovely comments are very much appreciated. We hope to welcome you back to The Lakes again very soon. Kind regards, , Susan and Chris (owners) Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was lovely and the views were stunning."

    Grasmere is a great village with loads of places to eat, and within a few miles of Amberside, Windermere and Keswick. The information provided was comprehensive and useful regarding the heating, kitchen appliances and laundry. We had a lovely relaxing week and were sad to leave. Will definitely consider a return visit next year.

    Thank you for your feedback - we appreciate your thoughts. We are delighted that you found High Raise to your liking and hope to welcome you back one day soon. Kind regards, Susan and Christopher (owners) Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely apartment in the center of the village, close to local amenities and attractions."

    Ideally situated for the bus stop to explore the local area, with capped fares and a regular service, ( We didn't use the car for our entire stay! ). We found it to be very comfortable, always had hot water, nice views but restricted head room in places. Please be aware there are 35 steps from the car park to the living area. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again. Unable to leave a message as visitor book was full.

    Thank you for choosing to stay at High Raise and taking the time to write such positive feedback.

  • "The property was cold throughout our stay despite having the central heating on and using the fan heater."

    We stayed only for three nights instead of the seven we had paid for because of this.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are so very sorry that you did not find the apartment as warm as you would have wished. Over the years, none of our previous guests have encountered this problem. The Lakelovers' manual in the apartment explains how to adjust the heating thermostat to one's personal taste -and the chart above the thermostat shows the daily heating programme and again how to adjust this for personal taste so that the heating can be at full temperature 24hours a day if wished. We apologise once more that you did not find this adequate and we shall pay particular attention to winter temperatures in future. Regards, Susan and Chris (owners) Property Owner

  • "The bed was so uncomfortable and that was the main downfall of the experience."

    The mattress was really hard. This made our backs sore and but a downer on the holiday and atmosphere. Also the stiffness of our backs made it difficult to get in and out of the bath. The ceiling beams was another issue. The amount of times we banged our heads was ridiculous, in the kitchen and near the TV. The pictures in the ad was slightly misleading. A picture of a building out the window. We thought was the place we was staying at but it wasn't.. it was just a view from the apartment. We struggled to find the actual place itself. We had to phone up and ask for directions and description of the exact place we was staying. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need for our stay, for cooking and cleaning up after ourselves. The views were amazing though. Could hear birds singing in the morning. The overall layout was open and airy and flowed throughout.

    Thank you for choosing to stay High Raise and taking the time to write a review. We have made arrangements for Lakelovers to improve their directions and photograph descriptions. The bed has a new "1000 pocket sprung, medium feel , zip and link mattress". Beds are very much a matter of personal preference but we shall supply a deeper mattress topper to hopefully suit the taste of all our guests going forward.

  • "High Raise was an idyllic and beautiful stay!"

    I don’t think it’s quite advertised just how amazing the location is.. there are honestly mountain views from everyone window. We woke up to mountains, dined with the mountains and the window seat made that even more beautiful! The property was very clean on arrival with all the things we’d need to settle in like cleaning supplies. As well as this there was some very well received Prosecco in a ice bucket awaiting us! Grasmere is a perfect location with enough local shops and sites to enjoy with nearby walks but close links to Ambleside and Keswick for more to do! We even climbed up two of the peaks around Grasmere as we were so mesmerised by staring at them from our loft. It wasn’t our original plan but it was a brilliant idea. The only small thing that did disrupt our stay was the parking issue. I don’t think this is by any means the owners or Lake Lovers fault and they were helpful when contacted but it was slightly annoying. The parking space is clearly marked however sometimes we arrived to a car already parked there and as the space it quite small in the car park area it meant we had park elsewhere. However if you’re out most the day like us it shouldn’t be a huge issue! Just something to note for those that may wish to park there more often throughout the day. Overall we would definitely recommend and visit here again in the future. In fact, I’ve already recommended for my parents to book for their next holiday!!

    Thank you very much for spending time to write your lovely review . We are delighted that you had a super holiday at High Raise in beautiful Grasmere. We were appalled to hear that some selfish person had been parking illegally in our designated parking space during your stay. We shall be looking into this situation urgently. Property Owner

  • "We were very happy with the property."

    It was clean, tidy, comfortable and nicely decorated. The mattress on the bed was on the firm side, which we were ok with, but some may find a tad hard! The bath was on the small side and the water pressure a bit low. The apartment was in a great position and , as there were so many excellent walks straight from it, we didn’t use the car at all. The car park was quite tight for a big car but manageable. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Thanks for the Prosecco on arrival!

    Thankyou for your lovely and helpful feedback. The new pocket sprung mattress is of "medium tension" but, like you, we believe some guests may find it on the firm side . We are ordering a 3cm foam mattress "topper" to ensure a great night's sleep for all our guests. Property Owner

  • "The apartment is lovely, and in a great position in Grasmere."

    In general, the apartment is well furnished with many utilities available for a comfortable stay. Parking fine, albeit a bit tight sometimes. Overall, I enjoyed my stay, and the apartment, and likely to do this again. However, for purpose of feedback, and to improve the quality and success of the stay, the most important thing is a comfortable good nights sleep. The bed mattress in the apartment is well beyond its best, and not supporting or comfortable at all, in fact it left me with a stiff back each morning. Worse, when I removed the bed linen prior to leaving, I found the mattress and pillows to be heavily stained, which made me feel a bit queezy to think I'd slept on it all week. I left a review in the guest book, only to find the same comments from previous guests, which disappointed me. For the cost of the apartment, this should be rectified asap otherwise it will attract negative comments. Would I stay again? yes absolutely - only if mattress replaced...

    We thank our guests for their feedback. We sincerely apologise for the problems some of our early guests encountered just after reopening from covid lockdown. We are very sorry to hear of the cleaning issues and have flagged this up with the housekeeping team. A water bottle spillage, left a stain on the mattress. We apologise profusely for this. A new mattress was ordered immediately and, despite a short delay the new one is now in place. We hope we can welcome you back to beautiful Grasmere in the future. Property Owner

  • "Apartment left in filthy condition."

    2nd clean required. Mattresses badly stained and sagging. Poor condition of much of furniture. Had to wash all cutlery, plates and glasses prior to using them. Lack of response from customer services, and lack of action apart from Housekeeper who arranged a 2nd clean. Had to provide own 3" topper to separate us from an obviously urinated mattresses. Lack of any real urgency and appreciation from customer services as to how upsetting this was. Long waits to contact customer services (up to 1 hour) as there was no dedicated phone line. Over week sent 6 emails and 9 phone calls in an unsuccessful attempt to resolve this matter. Am writing to formally complain and ask for compensation. Will NEVER use Sykes again!

  • "On arrival we couldn't get into the property."

    You had only given us the Internal Door Code not the Outer Door code which your member of staff gave us over the phone. I emailed you on the day regarding this but you haven't bothered to reply. Doesn't suggest you really care about customer service does it. The property itself was very nice but the quality of cleaning was very poor. Hairs left in drawers and crumbs in kitchen cupboards. I would send you a photo but there doesn't appear to be much point.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear your comments regarding problems with entering the property, unfortunately we weren't aware only 1 keycode was given, this has now been resolved.

The property

A romantic penthouse in the heart of Grasmere, High Raise offers couples the perfect spot from which to make the most of everything the Lake District has to offer.

Loughrigg, Rydal Water and Easedale Tarn are in easy reach, with more demanding climbs close by.

Grasmere itself is a haven for culture vultures and foodies, not forgetting the famous Grasmere Gingerbread and Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage.

A private parking space is provided for guests of High Raise.

From here an external staircase leads up to the apartment’s private entrance, and an internal staircase to the luxury living space with its magnificent views.

The stylish furnishings, exposed beams and sloping ceilings make this a welcoming and exceedingly comfortable home from home, with large picture windows making the most of the surrounding views.

Neutral tones work well with the exposed wood and stonework, and the large, comfortable bed guarantees a great night’s sleep.

The superb kitchen is well equipped with full size electric oven and dining area, perfect for a lazy breakfast or romantic evening meal.

For those hoping to tick off a few mountains on their Lake District bucket list, the starting point for a popular route up Helvellyn is only a short drive away.

The vibrant village of Ambleside with its two quirky cinemas, independent shops and yet more superb restaurants, tea rooms and cafés is only five minutes down the road.

High Raise has so much to offer, all year round.

About the location

GRASMERE

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.
