  • "Fantastic spot."

    Cottage is a good size and comfortable. Kitchen was very well equipped. Far better than your average holiday let.

  • "We booked Grange Fell for New Year 2023/24 after seeing the positive reviews on the website."

    However, when we arrived the place wasn't as spotless as we were led to believe. The cleaner had missed cobwebs over ceilings, around the walls and skirting boards and around the fireplace. The fireplace also had not been cleaned, and the glass was filthy. We cleaned all of the above ourselves. The top of the fridge was also disgusting, which we cleaned. We were also not left any initial supply of logs or firelighters, and despite contacting the number for caretaking did not get any response. There were a number of issues that we highlights by way of a note on our departure, which we discovered over the course of the week. The shower in the main bathroom did not get hot, in fact it was freezing. The power switch was turned on outside the bathroom as we checked. The washer/dryer did not dry and kept erroring. There was mould growing in the corner of the en suite room, quite badly also, and the whole place needed updating and at the very least a lick of paint. It was also quiet cold on an evening, despite the provision of oil heaters, which were more like space heaters. We were to say the least disappointed, especially as we paid over the odds of a New Year week. We loved the area however and the cottage did provide a good base for exploring, but we will not be visiting again.

  • "A fabulous location, walks from the door, great cycling, kayaking and swimming in derwentwater, then of course having a lovely cafe next door is perfect."

    We were 4 very active adults and 1 border terrier and found the cottage welcoming, very comfortable and lots of space for us, 2 porches for muddy boots, large bedrooms, there were even hot water bottles! There was nothing more we could have asked for. Keswick is just a few minutes away with supermarket....they also sell logs, handy if you need more for the wood burner. Great places to eat and drink....the Borrowdale Gates Hotel seemed happy when we turned up for a stiff drink after climbing Scafell still in our walking gear. Also great pub in Stonethwaite.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are glad that you enjoyed everything that the property and area have to offer. It looks like you had a really great experience. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Grange Fell cottage was spotlessly clean ."

    Great kitchen with quality crockery and overall very well equipped , Very quiet location just 5/10 mins drive into Keswick. Loads of walks on the doorstep. We were there during a very warm, sunny week but I would imagine cottage is very cozy in the winter months . Only negative is that main bedroom could do with black out blinds as it is very light from very early in the morning !

    Thank you so much for your feedback. The owner will receive a copy of your response so will be able to action any suggestions where possible. We would highlight that of course everyone's preferences are different so black out blinds may not suit all guests. We are glad that you did enjoy the property and it's easy location to Keswick.

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting."

    2 min walk from bus stop. Cafe next door for breakfasts and snacks. No pen so could not write in the visitors book to say thankyou for the nice wine. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need, very clean and comfortable.

  • "Lovely cottage with good sized accommodation and super soft beds."

    Plenty of well designated parking, entrance porches front and back, large family kitchen diner, comfortable lounge, master bedroom suite, big second and third bedrooms. Everything you might need and more! A great choice for a family holiday!

  • "Great house in a great location, especially because there is a bus stop right in front of the cottage, meaning we used the car less than we thought we had to."

    The house itself is very spacious and well equipped. There are plenty of great fell-walking and hiking opportunities nearby, and even a river for a quick dip. All in all we had a very enjoyable time at Grange Fell and would definitely book the house again should we decide to return to Borrowdale. I’m also pleased that rescheduling our stay twice (due to Covid travel restrictions in 2020 and 2021) was no problem at all.

  • "This cottage is a pure delight."

    The setting, the views, the facilities and great owners. Couple of issues were dealt with really quickly and didn't detract from break. Only blow was our favourite local cafes, including the one next door, were shut as it was January, Would definitely return

  • "The property had everything we needed and Grange is situated in a brilliant location for great walks and accessing other Lakeland towns, whilst still retaining a village feel about it."

    Weather too was excellent, which always helps!

The property

Originally converted from a barn, this pretty Lakeland cottage is situated in one of the most spectacular areas of the Lake District.

Surrounded by mountains, and only a short drive from the centre of Keswick, Grange Fell makes a superb base from which to enjoy some of Wainwright’s favourite walks including Castle Crag and Catbells. The cottage itself is full of charm, with a warm and welcoming vibe.

A smart kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to rustle up a hearty breakfast or supper.

The farmhouse dining table and comfortable chairs are perfect for a lively family meal or celebration.

A cosy sitting room comes with feature fireplace and large wood burning stove, while the views from the picture windows are incredible.

Fitted carpets, comfy sofas and storage heaters ensure that this is somewhere guests will come to relax after a vigorous day of walking and exploring.

Up the stairs to the three spacious bedrooms and house bathroom.

On the first floor is the master bedroom, a double with en-suite shower room, a twin room and house bathroom with shower over the bath.

The views from here are pretty amazing, but the one from the eves twin room have to be the best.

Outside there is a safe place to store bikes, along with a pretty patio garden area complete with garden furniture.

On a summer’s evening, this is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy watching the sun set over the majestic mountains and fells.

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