    The location is brilliant - it was lovely to be away from the road and have parking. The rooms were large and light. The beds were comfortable and the shower was excellent. Well equipped kitchen that had most items we needed. Some feedback for you: The floors hadn't been cleaned that well. There was no washing up liquid provided. Only 3 cereal-sized bowls. A cow appeared in the field that you overlook mid-week and it's amazing how noisy they are - from 6am and through to nearly midnight :(

The property

This charming semi-detached Lakeland stone cottage is located in the village of Grasmere, a popular destination in the centre of the Lake District. Tanner Croft Cottage is a two bedroom property with wood burning stove and breathtaking views, offering a cosy base for a two-couple or small family holiday in this beautiful Lake District village. The cottage has a cosy charm the moment you walk into the open plan living space, with the sitting room centred around a feature fireplace that houses a wood burning stove.

Both the sitting and separate dining area offer relaxing views across to the village.

The kitchen has all the necessary amenities to keep your party well fed but retains the country living charm prevalent throughout the cottage.

The first-floor bedrooms complete the accommodation, with a double and a twin continuing the cosy feel. The cottage has a small gravelled garden area and from here you can relax on the garden seating and take in the views at the end of your day’s exploits. Grasmere is steeped in historical charm, with all necessary amenities within walking distance.

Perhaps try some famous Grasmere gingerbread as you wander through the village on your way back from lunch at one of the local inns. Grasmere could not be more central, so everything is accessible from the village.

A drive or bus ride will take you to everything the Lake District has to offer.

Wind your way south to Windermere, or north to Ullswater to take in a choice of energetic water activities or a gentle cruise around the lake.

Alternatively, simply embark on one of the many walking routes available almost from your front door. Occupying a perfect spot in the countryside, Tanner Croft Cottage offers a small family or two couples a central location for a wonderful break in the heart of the Lake District.

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 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.
