Will book again
Great choice for Grasmere with dogs. Especially as you don’t pay extra for their stay. We stayed in The Cottage which was ideal for our short break. Will definitely book again.

Ideal for couples
This is a lovely place to stay, a truly ideal location just a minutes walk to the village but with plenty of free parking. It’s a pretty building with character, but none of the creaky floorboards or questionable decor you often get with ‘character’ buildings. The bed was plenty comfy, the bedroom was uncluttered and the bathroom was spacious in the “Loft” room. It would have been truly ideal for us as a place to stay as a couple with no time pressures. We had a toddler with us, and upon booking we were immediately offered a cot bed for her in the room which felt very attentive. Having a toddler in that room wasn’t very practical as there was nowhere to put anything out of reach, the doors didn’t have a lock or latch (on the inside or the room door or bathroom) and there wasn’t much spare space in that particular room. The bathroom was attractively decorated and contained pleasant, sustainable toiletries but without a shower or shower attachment on the bath, getting ready took longer than normal. Hot water was instant and plentiful at any time day or night. Room heating was great. In short it’s ideal for couples, but wouldn’t comfortably fit more in.

We stayed in Penthouse which was fab! Beautiful views of the lake and had everything we needed. Was a little concerned as dog friendly that there may be a dog smell but needn't have worried the whole apartment was imaculate. I didnt realise we'd still have tea, coffee etc as we had our own kitchenette so was a lovely bonus. Banged my head a couple of times as lowered ceiling white so blends into the rest - no problem with the beams, so maybe just a different colour or an arrow would help. However it didn't detract from our wonderful stay. We will definitely be back!

Loved the accommodation for location and cleanliness. Beautiful grounds. Only disappointment is lack of availability of anywhere to eat due to covid and staff shortages. Overall though I would return.
