    • “Wonderful place and really lovely cottage! We have stayed on the estate now two years running and love the area with its many walks for the dogs and peaceful setting! Everything is to a very high standard.”

    Ms Thurgood, Crediton, October 2018

    • “Cottage is situated in lovely area of Cumbria the complex was very well looked after and the swimming pool was great success with grandkids, The cottage was spacious and comfortable and had all the things we needed My only constructive feedback is the cottage was rather tired and could do with a refurbish or at least the walls repainted and the scruffy carpets replaced”

    Mrs Henden, Eastbourne, August 2018

    • “The cottage was wonderful so spacious and the beds were so comfortable lovely views just fantastic!! :)”

    Mrs Prince, Abingdon, June 2018

    • “We loved everything about the cottage,facilities and outside space!Our son was in his element!Can't wait to book for next year”

    Mrs Jacques, Oldfield, Keighley, March 2018

    • “We arrived in snowy weather and Jubilee was very cold apart from the top bedroom which had a modern heater, and the living room was only warm enough when we had the fire going and a fan heater. One storage heater did not work, this was fixed during out stay which helped with that room. There was no light bulb in the ground floor toilet which was not changed despite asking about it. Debbie (?) was very friendly and helpful and provided us with more fan heaters. We have been coming to Graythwaite for many years and always have a great time, just a shame it was so cold in our cottage as the other cottages were not. Probably because it is detached? But it does need better heating as we were warmer outside!”

    Mrs Stock, HEATHFIELD, March 2018

    • “The location was extremely isolated. The heating was inadequate on the Thursday night we returned later than usual and had to keep our coats on until we went to bed it was so cold. The water in the en-suite ran yellow the whole time we were there and we were unable to use the bath as a result. The water in the shower never got hot only luke-warm. The whole place needed a face-lift as it was quite dated. We don't feel it was a four star.”

    Mr Tasker, Coventry, November 2017

    • “Very helpful manager. Good location. Will go back.”

    Dr Pullan, CAMBRIDGE, August 2017

    • “The initial cottage is what I have based my feedback on. The cottage was not well maintained and cleanliness and comfort were not as one would hope. Sykes were helpful in getting us moved although this took some time. We have stayed at Graythwaite before and feel that standards have slipped which I think you should pass on to them.”

    Mrs Francis, Surbiton, November 2018

Regional Information

HAWKSHEAD Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles. The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
