  • "We had a most enjoyable week despite the cold and at times wet and windy weather."

    The cottage is very comfortable and well furnished with good sized rooms and a well equipped kitchen. The bathroom was lovely and warm and proper sized bath towels provided and all towels and bed linen of a good quality. The shower does not have a lot of pressure but normal with electric showers. The only difficulty that we found was that it was extremely difficult getting the car out because of the narrow entry with stone walls each side and opposite the entrance in the narrow lane, it was impossible to turn the car around in the parking area which is only really suitable for a small car. We are very grateful for the amazing Welcome pack which was so exceptionally well thought out with everything that you would need if you had arrived with nothing, it was excellent and the best one by a mile that we have ever received thank you. We would very much like to stay again it is only the difficulty with the car that may deter us. We love Grasmere and look forward to visiting it again.

  • "Stayed here last year and loved it."

    This year there were a few minor faults, nothing that would make us not book again but needs looking into. 1- The amount of cobwebs in the bathroom needs attention. 2- The shower thermostat doesn't work (therefore you either get extremely hot water - to the point it burns or freezing cold! it does this all by itself too) 3 - There is supposed to be an in-bath mat in the cupboard under the sink, but this year it wasn't there. Without it the bath is extremely slippery so you do need to make sure this is in the cupboard. As I say minor set backs but would definitely recommend the cottage.

  • "Stayed at Stone Beck on several occasions."

    Great cottage for us. Its location allows us to leave the car and do our favourite walks around Ambleside, Grasmere, Langdale and Thirlmere. A good bus service lets us travel further afield if we wish. Cottage is well appointed with all facilities and plenty of info on area. Short walk into Grasmere itself to take advantage of pubs and eateries. Will certainly revisit and definitely recommend.

  • "This is a very spacious, well appointed and presented property in an excellent location."

    It only has windows on two sides and, like most Lakeland period properties at the foot of a fell, is quite dark. A reading light in the sitting room would help. The heating seemed to struggle with the cold weather - it took until the middle of the week to achieve a comfortable temperature. It only managed to heat a quarter of the towel rail, which meant the large, very high ceilinged, bathroom was particularly chilly. The gas fire was a great help in the sitting room. The bed (? 5ft - a 6 footer would be nice) in the main bedroom was excellent, the two singles are probably in need of replacement and can't be recommended for bad backs. Seemingly par for the course in rental properties, the duvets were incredibly heavy so you may wish to bring your own.

  • "Great location."

    The property was clean, has been very well refurbished and the decor soft and very pleasant. Impressed with the windows which were air tight and clean. Torch plugged in by the front door is a nice touch, the welcome box was a lovely surprise. Impressed that the towels are 4-star hotel quality. Just a few things could be improved - the washing machine has some black mold and needs a through clean, we cleaned the cutlery draw and despite the general quality the cutlery is of poor quality, there wasn't any room in the kitchen cupboards for food so we had to move items around to make space, the baking trays have rust and need replacing and we found the knife block a bit alarming!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to see that you found the property to be clean and comfy. We take all comments on board. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    We will miss the brook lulling us to sleep and the short walk to “The Swan” pub which gave a warm welcome to man and his four legged friends. Also the lovely welcome hamper which greeted us on arrival was above and beyond, it was like unwrapping an early Christmas gift full of delicious surprises ( every one enjoyed) . We loved our stay (despite the rainy weather) and would love to stay again. Thank you to Stonebeck owners and do not hesitate to stay in this wonderful cottage in an amazing situation close to Grasmere village.

    A beautiful location, so peaceful, and a short walk into the village. The house was as always, warm, comfortable and clean. Everything you need. Walks to so many fells from your door step. We’ve stayed here many times and will be again. Thank you once again to the owners for the lovely hamper, full of local produce. So kind.

  • "We have stayed here a number of times in the past."

    This cottage is in a quiet corner of Grasmere. Lovely views and walks from the door. Couple of minutes walk to pubs etc. Welcome hamper much appreciated. There was a problem with the gas fire which wasn't working when we arrived but Graeme from hotl maintenance (thanks Graeme) contacted us on Monday morning and a new fire was fitted on Wednesday . We love this cottage and would highly recommend it. One thing to mention to dog owners is that there is no gate on the garden. This wasn't a problem in the past as we visited with an older fully trained dog but this year we brought our young puppy. As the garden is open to the road she needed to be on a leash when outside. A gate might be appreciated by dog owners and families with small children. Thanks we will be booking again

    Size is great for 4 adults and being dog friendly is a bonus, although the garden is not enclosed. Although it didn’t impact our stay, couple of things need a bit attention. Radiator in bathroom only heats bottom section. Coffee machine didn’t work Settee has seen its best days, one leg looks very close to collapse. Internet is tediously slow for streaming. Looking forward to staying again next year.

    It was also a good idea as we went out and bought more of some of the products which must be good for local trade. The property was very well furnished and clean, it has also had a makeover since our last stay there a few years ago. This made the lounge particularly seem much more spacious. The quilts were all 13 tog which must great for winter but a bit warm for summer when it is 20+ degrees outside.

  • "Fabulous cottage filled with plenty of equipment for you to use."

    Very easy to leave the car for a week and just walk everywhere (this is exactly what we did). It is a 10min walk into the village of Grasmere but this is better because it's more peaceful. The Swan Hotel is 2mins away and The Travellers Rest about 10mins. A lovely little beck runs through the garden which is lovely to hear. The only downside of the property is it doesn't have gates, so If you have a dog, keep an eye on them in the garden because they can go out into the road (although it is a very quiet road).

    It’s a great location within easy reach of many must see locations and this years improved guest book gave more information of the local area which we found really helpful and we found ourselves doing plenty of walking right from the door. The condition of the home is still of a very high standard. The only areas that might need to be looked at are that the frying pans are a little on the older side now, and whether there is the option to recycle your plastics etc as we weren’t sure how we should do this. But once again a very enjoyable stay in a very well presented house and we will return again at some point in the future.

  • "Stone Beck has become our first choice in Grasmere."

    This was our 3rd visit and all being well we will return. The hamper that is now left is most welcome and much appreciated. We find Stone Beck ito be comfortable, well equipped, and perfectly situated both for a stroll into Grasmere and for walks from the door onto the fells. It is also convenient for getting around the rest of the Lakes by car. In terms of things to report, the only adverse thing we noticed (and this is a 1 out of 10) was that the gas fire igniter control seemed jammed. We didn’t want to mess with it. But it meant that we needed the main heating system rather more than would have otherwise been the case and in these energy conscious times we were a bit uncomfortable about this. But 5 stars from us.

    Thank you so much Arthur for your review. It is a real treat for us to get visitors coming back time and again. The location really is difficult to beat isn't it? Regarding the fire, I will ask the maintenance team to go in and take a look at the ignition switch. It did have a new switch installed when it was serviced a few months ago, but as you say it will be needed as the colder weather sets in. We hope that you will visit us again soon. Property Owner

    Beds are showing signs of wear especially single beds, perhaps in need of refresh? Duvets need to be available with lower tog especially in the warmer weather. Welcome food pack much appreciated with wonderful local produce. Parking good for two cars, but you need to master your reversing skills

    Thank for Russell for taking the time to provide us some feedback about your stay. The single beds both had new mattresses a few months ago but the headboards weren't replaced at that time. July and August this year were scorchers, and I know a lower tog would have been welcomed for some weeks. It is a challenge trying to get the tog level right though, particularly given the variable weather conditions in the Lakes! We will look into providing an alternative lighter duvet next summer.

The property has been finished to a high standard with lovely décor and furnishings, ideal for a small family or couple.

Enter through the front door in the hallway before locating the sitting room, appointed with a stylish settee and slate fireplace housing a living flame gas fire, perfect for curling up beside on a cold winter evening.

Take yourself into the well-equipped dining kitchen, presented with sleek units and an assortment of integrated appliances to satisfy your culinary requirements, along with a dining table with seating for four.

A short walk along the River Rothay will lead you directly to Grasmere Lake where you can see the natural beauty that inspired many poets and authors over the years.

You can also visit the two homes of William Wordsworth, with both Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount open to the public.

Further afield, Windermere is within a short drive adjacent to the world-famous lake, offering all the energetic countryside activities you could desire including a range of water sports, or perhaps take a more relaxed approach with a trip on the lake itself.

In the ideal base for a rural escape to the Lake District, Stone Beck makes a lovely holiday base, any time of year.

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.
