“Breathtaking setting but a fairly long walk from Ambleside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

Great little place, with stunning gardens and views over Ambleside and the surrounding peaks. Well furnished, clean, cosy.

It is a good 40 minute walk uphill from Ambleside to the cottages though, which is the only downside if you want to go out for dinner etc etc

“Fantastic tranquil holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at Grove Corner for one week and then Middle Grove for another week. It really is a fantastic place for me to clear my mind, enjoy the fresh air, and enjoy Lakes District. The cottage is on top of a hill at the end of a road and there's no traffic. The only sound you hear is the occasional "baa" from sheep grazing, and birds chirping. At night we enjoyed just sitting outside and chatting. There's a small stream that runs through the property.

Booking was easy via http://www.grovecottages.com , and the people running the place were very helpful.

The cottages are complete with a kitchen, LCD TV, DVD player, satellite TV, washer/ dryer and the thing I like most is the high speed wifi internet connection.

This place is really unique, and it really deserves its place as the Number 1 accommodation in the area on Trip Advisor.

“Fabulous car free walking base to explore Ambleside and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Grove Cottages are a delightful conversion of an old Lakeland farm and outbuildings perched above Ambleside and over looking the Kirkstone pass. The quality of the accommodation is first class, as is the service you get, either on fthe phone, direct or on line. The location, combined with staying on a farm was the real attraction for us (the owners are busy repairing an old field barn). It measn you can arrive by car if you choose, and then leave it all week and just walk from the cottages without ever doing a walk twice.

“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Fabulous location with stunning scenery and absolute peace and quiet. We had a wonderful week here in spite of pretty terrible weather. This is pretty much the place I have hunted for for years and failed to find as some more unscrupulous holiday companies are a little less honest with their descriptions. Not Grove Cottages I am pleased to say. Everything was as described and the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful.

We stayed in Grove Corner which was very private, clean, well appointed and had absolutely everything we needed. We had trouble prising ourselves off the extremely comfy sofa as we were pretty burnt out when we arrived. After a few days in the fresh air and the tranquility of Grove Cottages in the evenings, we both felt refreshed and relaxed - exactly what we needed.

Lots of walks available immediately from the cottage so no need to get in the car if you don't want to.

Ambleside is easily walkable but we would recommend a car or taxi if you are in a hurry or want to get dressed up to go out.

“A wonderfully homely cottage in a stunning setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

An absolutely superb accommodation : spotless,extremely comfortable and lots of extra home comforts including a pile of fluffy white towels,and hidden extras like the cafeterie,dishwasher,CDs,flowers,biscuits and even some party-poppers and candles!!
The scenery from the cottage and pretty garden is stunning - and walks from the accommodation are memorable.

“Beautiful location - ideal centre for exploring the Lakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Beautiful, peaceful location just outside Ambleside - an ideal centre for easy access to all areas of the Lakes or, alternatively, for walking various routes directly into the hills from the cottage. Lovely welcome and very comfortable cottage. Would thoroughly recommend, and look forward to returning in the future.
