Why Tony Hill chose Windermere & Central Lakes

It's a magical place.Never get fed up with it.The cottage is in the heart of the village,yet is in a quiet south facing courtyard.

A great place to stay if you like walking,be it the fells or just on the lowlands.Many guests refer to it as the "upside down" cottage as the lounge and kitchen are upstairs so you can enjoy the view of the fells.

Plenty of places to visit,Dove Cottage,William Wordsworths home at on time Allen Bank ,another of his homes all in walking distance from the cottage.

A great bus service in Grasmere to Keswick,Ambleside ,Bowness and even Coniston so no need to move the car.

Grasmere is a beautiful place,if you haven't been before you will certainly want to return.

What makes this cottage unique

In the heart of the village,yet a quiet location.Convenient for the local shops,coffee bars,pubs. A great centre for walking on the Fell or just footpaths.

Very good bus service to Keswick,Ambleside,Windermere and around the Lakes.

Bring you bus pas if you are of the age!

A comfortable cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very nice with comfortable beds, a cosy lounge/kitchen area and a pleasant flower-filled courtyard to sit in the sun (when it shone!). It is in a perfect location for Grasmere with the bonus of a parking place - we soon got used to reversing the car past the narrows.

Great cottage, great location.

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is in a great location, nice and clean with all the facilities you'd need for a comfortable stay. Everything was in a good condition and working order.

Grasmere is a great village for exploring the lakes with plenty of places to eat and drink. Would recommend staying here and would definitely consider staying again.

Lovely cottage in the centre of small village of Grasmere, warm, comfortable and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was well located as we were able to do 3 different walks from the cottage. We also drove to Keswick (20 mins) to do one walk and Ambleside (10 mins) to do another walk. Grasmere itself is very small but has pub, tearooms, Gingerbread Shop and Co-Op which are all from 2 to 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

The cottage is lovely with comfortable beds, large bathroom, well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting area with lovely views from the windows.

The only issue is the parking as the driveway to the parking space is very narrow and only small cars will get in and out. However there is a carpark permit provided for the public carpark which is a 2 minute walk away which is also valid in other places such as Ambleside.

We had a very nice time and would like to return some day.

Owner's Response: Very nice to have a feed back and yes the drive is very tight at one or two points but unfortunately we can't do anything about it as we are in a conservation area. Glad you enjoyed your stay . Tony

Brilliant location, lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This upside down cottage means lovely cool bedrooms in the summer and a light and cosy upstairs lounge/kitchen. The courtyard is ideal for both evening drinks and for breakfasts in the sunshine when it happens. Everything we needed for day to day functioning was available. The bus services locally meant we could leave the car behind in the (small with tight access) parking space by the cottage even when we went walking or sightseeing in areas away from Grasmere. Lots of choices locally for food and drink made things easy, and a small Co-op was useful for milk and so on, especially as it opened late into the evening. Definitely will consider returning!

Dream cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our third or fourth visit and we loved it just as much. the cottage is in the centre of Grasmere but tucked away in a courtyard so not at all noisy. Everything is just a few minutes walk away including the bus stop with regular buses to Keswick & Windermere. On a very rainy day when we expected rain all day we headed East to the dry Eden Valley and enjoyed riding on the Settle to Carlisle railway:- fabulous views, tunnels and viaducts.

We always enjoy a meal at Sara's Bistro in Grasmere and a long visit to National Trust's Grasmere Allan Bank, where we can sit and relax, read papers, books and make our own tea/coffee for free. Delightful.
