About Martin Wood

I went to the village school in Grasmere as have all my children we have been letting cottages in Grasmere for 20 years many of our guests are now friends returning year after year. We live in the village near the cottage and have a small outdoor shop in the village so are always on hand to offer any help or information you may need about the area. The cottage is cleaned and maintained by myself and my wife Diane.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Great cottage in a fabulous location - the perfect spot for a family holiday.”5 of 5 stars

Reviewed November 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013 The cottage was in the perfect location for a family holiday that included family members from 10 years to 89 years old and large enough to accommodate us all comfortably.Being right in the heart of Grasmere meant that my mum and my younger daughter could both get to the shops and cafes very easily. But as the cottage is on the banks of the river with views over to Butter Crag it never felt as if we were in the town at all.

The cottage was the right combination of comfortable and practical and had everything we needed. And Martin was helpful without being intrusive.

All in all a great place to stay.

Beautiful cottage central in town

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say don't want to broadcast but this is such a little gem of a cottage as we'd love to go back very central to some fantastic walks ,at the side of the river which the children loved paddling and saw loads of wildlife, red squirrels ,deers . The cottage itself was very spacious for the two families ,never went out to eat because we had such a lovely area at the side of the river to eat . We went to the pool at the Hotel round the corner which was lovely . The owner popped in to see if everything was okay which was a nice touch .

Lovely position right next to the river. Owner very friendly & lives in the village which is handy. Very central to Grasmere so ideal for walks, restaurants, pubs. Fabulous views from every window in the property. Plenty of parking.

Charming cottage in Grasmere

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 3 days at the charming Buttercrag Cottage with friends, and enjoyed the 2 walks we had planned to do. The cottage was cosy and big enough for the 2 families - the kids shared the bunk bed room. We ate out so didn't use the kitchen to its full but we found everything we needed for our short stay. An extra special thank you to Martin for baling us out with jumpleads on our departure day!

Brilliant Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. It was perfect for what we needed it for, we went to a wedding at the Dale Lodge, so it was just a short walk to the location. We would like to go back in the summer because the cottage is right next to the river and it's nice to watch people in their canoes go by. It also has a lovely view of the mountains and around. Definitely would recommend. Thank you Guys
