About the Owner

We loved holidaying in the Lake District but never found a self-catering cottage that was suitable as one of our children uses a wheelchair. We bought Rothay Lodge & Apartment in 2003 and made both properties wheelchair accessible and provided everything that we would want from a holiday home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Visitor book contains many kind comments about how lovely, warm and well-equipped the apartment is and what a great holiday was had. Also, when returning the key in the stamped addressed envelope provided, guests have often included a note thanking me, saying that it was like a home from home and often re-booking for the following year.

Perfect stay with elderly mother

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Rothay Lodge Apartment. The apartment is very comfortable and is very well furnished and equipped. The location suited us very well, within easy walking distance of the restaurants, shops and pubs in the village of Grasmere.

My elderly mother was staying with us and she has restricted mobility, and cannot climb stairs. The apartment was perfect for her being all on the ground floor and the en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower was ideal. The one small issue that we had during the week (wi-fi stopped working) was immediately resolved with a phone call to Lindsay, the owner.

Lindsay was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. We definitely hope to stay there again.

Thanks Lindsay!

Perfect place to stay..

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we loved the apartment. It was warm, cosy, clean and had everything we needed for a perfect week away.

They had even put a Christmas tree up in the lounge!

It is in a great location and we enjoyed our time away. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed - from washing up liquid to kitchen roll ! The communication and booking process with the owner was excellent and we would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.

A wonderful base.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many holiday rentals, 3 in Cumbria this year alone, but this was the nicest I have ever rented. It was well equipped, warm and had large comfortable beds. The shower in the wet room was amazing. It's location is perfect, close enough to walk to restaurants but peaceful. Grasmere was great with everything you need and plenty of options for dinner, I would recommend the Traveller's Rest. In spite of awful weather we had a lovely holiday and would love to return.

Grasmere re-visited

  • 5 of 5

This is the best property we have stayed in in over 15 years of visiting the Lake district. It is comfortable, spacious and has everything you could possibly need for a holiday.

The situation is also excellent, only a short walk from the centre of Grasmere, with it's great bars & restaurants. Highly recommended.

Relaxing beyond belief!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Rothay Lodge Apartment on many occasions and have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in stunning surroundings. You don't just have to relax though; if you want a strenuous time walking the fells there are a good choice of walks close by.

This ground floor apartment has every amenity you could wish for. The property is large enough for its four beds and has been thoughtfully designed to enable anyone to fully enjoy it's space. The rooms are all tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the property and it is easily wheelchair accessible. Everything is very clean and well maintained.

The property owners are a joy to deal with over bookings and, on the one occasion when we had cause to contact them during our stay about a problem with the heating, the situation was speedily resolved. We already have further stays planned.

Local facilities are good with an excellent choice of restaurants and bars nearby. There is a supermarket and post office in the village too.

The property's location, right on the banks of the River Rothay on the outskirts of Grasmere, is stunning and the views from the apartment are beautiful.

I would thoroughly recommend that you give this property a try; but not if you're looking for the same week as I am!!

Lovely place and beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week and fell in love with both the village and our accommodation. The apartment is like a home from home with everything we could ask for. The village is charming and with all the quirky shops you could ever want. Make sure you check out the burger at Tweedies bar in the village as it is out of this world! We will be telling our friends and will be back for sure.
