  • "What a lovely cottage; great location only a short walk from Grasmere village & just across the road from the lake."

    Downstairs rooms were great - 2 large lounges, good size dining table, well equipped kitchen with plenty of pots, pans etc. Upstairs, would have preferred more twin beds rather than doubles, would have suited our family group better. Weather not great so couldn't enjoy the outside seating areas much. Thanks for all the books & maps which helped with walk planning.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Huntingstile lodge."

    It is a large house with spectacular views and an easy walk into Grasmere. The garden was lovely in the late spring and the bedrooms were comfortable. The master bedroom has a stunning view and is a super room. The seating areas downstairs also have good views and were spacious and comfortable. The kitchen, whilst very well stocked with crockery and cooking items, is small for the size of the house and the fridge is a bit small if you want to cook for a large group over a whole week. Not much that the owner can do about the size of the kitchen but another fridge somewhere would be really useful. The few niggles we had were mostly in relation to cleaning products, such as, not nearly enough dishwasher tablets, the washing up liquid was in a bottle so small that we did not even spot it until we were leaving, no kitchen roll, one roll of toilet paper in each toilet. It seems a bit mean to limit these items which in total would cost less than £10 to provide in a generous quantity. I am not sure if the cottage is run by a company as there were no personal touches but I guess that was okay. Lucky the weather was good as when we tried the television on the last night we could not work out how to turn it on. There were no instructions to help us. Despite these niggles I would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased to hear that you had lovely stay, and enjoyed the views! We take all comments on board. As the property is self catering, items such as washing up liquid and toilet paper is meant as a starter. We hope to welcome you again. The Heart of the Lakes Owner Relations Team Property Owner

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.
