    “We spent an enjoyable week at Stone Arthur Cottage, it is a lovely property in a good location.”

    With plenty of walks and places to eat close by, there was no need to use the car at all. We felt the description of the cottage was not entirely accurate in respect of the surrounding views. There are wonderful views from the garden, but hardly any from inside the property. On a wet day, these would have been welcome. Several of the kitchen lightbulbs were not working, but we found replacements. Being unused to an AGA, it would have been helpful to know it needed to be switched on at the ...

    With plenty of walks and places to eat close by, there was no need to use the car at all. We felt the description of the cottage was not entirely accurate in respect of the surrounding views. There are wonderful views from the garden, but hardly any from inside the property. On a wet day, these would have been welcome. Several of the kitchen lightbulbs were not working, but we found replacements. Being unused to an AGA, it would have been helpful to know it needed to be switched on at the wall. Only one sheet mentioned this and we missed it initially. There were no cleaning products provided for kitchen or bathrooms, which we have come to expect at a holiday cottage, along with handwash. The wifi did not work at all.

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.

No children or babies under 8 years of age.
