    “Firstly the cottage was not ready when I arrived.”

    It was obvious nothing had been done since the previous occupants. i.e. dirty towels dumped in bathroon, no bed sheets etc. Door of freezer left open so freezer was full of ice rendering it non usuable. Owner suggested that I stay at local hotel as cleaners were not available at such a late hour in the evening. Owner said she would reimburse. Not confiemed at time of writing this. ...

    It was obvious nothing had been done since the previous occupants. i.e. dirty towels dumped in bathroon, no bed sheets etc. Door of freezer left open so freezer was full of ice rendering it non usuable. Owner suggested that I stay at local hotel as cleaners were not available at such a late hour in the evening. Owner said she would reimburse. Not confiemed at time of writing this. Blinds removed from front door and windows allowing no privacy. Cleaners left sheets for me to hang up as curtains. Black mold on ceiling around skylight (leaks from previous time) Mold in shower. Non self-lighting gas stove but no lighter or matches left for use! Blanket and cushions on sofa very dirty and full of animal hairs. No extra light bulbs for those not working. The photos on the website are not accurate at this time. (even though it is winter there was only a trace of what a "gardenn " might look like in better weather!) The location was perfect for me but the state of the property was very disappointing. I would not recommend others booking this until serious repairs are done.

The property

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.
