    “Its a lovely place in a perfect location however, the chairs in the living room are extremely uncomfortable, we only stayed for 3 nights but there is no way that I would stay again and I'm so glad I didn't stay longer, once in from our walks we had to spend most of our time sitting on the bed as we just couldn't sit in those chairs, what I don't understand is they could easily fit in a couple of normal armchairs or a 2 seater sofa if they moved all the plants!”

    ...

    I've also never understand why some of these places have nic-naks everywhere, I always assume the owners have been given them as gifts from people who dont' like them, they then think 'I don't want these cluttering up my house and gathering dust, I know, I'll dump them randomly around the holiday cottage to make it awkward for people to close the curtains or put a cup down without breaking them'! The shower is brilliant and the bed was comfy, the kichen had all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans etc that you needed and of course its location is perfect...but I won't stay again due to the discomfort of the chairs and I won't recommend it for that reason.

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 have 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, plus 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.
