    “This house should be five star but there are issues which need to be sorted out.”

    The location is fantastic as the house is nestled in the fells and also close to Grassmere. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped with three ovens and massive fridge with a built in ice maker! We had a wonderful week’s stay. Now for the issues: ...

    The location is fantastic as the house is nestled in the fells and also close to Grassmere. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped with three ovens and massive fridge with a built in ice maker! We had a wonderful week’s stay. Now for the issues: 1 Hot water - enough for 3 showers ( not great when there are 10 of you) 2. Heating - it’s winter and half of the radiators do not work and it was set on a timer which meant only heating in morning and evening. Woefully inadequate when staying over Christmas when you are more indoors. 3. Upstairs shower, very lower power and it trickled out. 4. Downstairs shower- the underfloor heating didn’t work. The kitchen is stunning, but overall the rest of the house needs some TLC. Saying all this, we would consider staying again if these issues were addressed as it really is in a spectacular location.

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.

Please Note: Dogs are not allowed upstairs.
