    “This is a lovely property (as shown in the photos).”

    Here are some of our thoughts on how to make the cottage better for guests. I think a 4 bedroom property needs more than one key; I couldn’t go out for an early morning run as I couldn’t take the key and lock my friends in, nor could I leave the house unlocked. It also felt unsafe in terms of a fire escape, to have the kitchen door locked and the one key kept near the front door or vice versa. There were no recycling boxes outside, only a big bin, yet there were separate waste bins in the ...

    Here are some of our thoughts on how to make the cottage better for guests. I think a 4 bedroom property needs more than one key; I couldn’t go out for an early morning run as I couldn’t take the key and lock my friends in, nor could I leave the house unlocked. It also felt unsafe in terms of a fire escape, to have the kitchen door locked and the one key kept near the front door or vice versa. There were no recycling boxes outside, only a big bin, yet there were separate waste bins in the kitchen. It was unclear what we should do with all our paper, plastics and glass. We really wanted to recycle most of our waste but couldn’t. It would be great if some large cooking pans were provided so we could cook for our whole group easily. Or state in description that they aren’t then we’d bring our own. Unfortunately the nespresso coffee machine didn’t work. Lighting was lovely; just an idea, maybe label some of the switches. It took us several days to work out what switch did what! Apart from the issue of only having one key for 2 doors and 4 (or more) guests, all these points are really just “even better if”s. The property is lovely and is in a great location. You don’t really need to use a car; there are great walks up high and also round the lake etc from the door.

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 has 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. 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.
