“Excellent”
Reviewed February 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We have just returned from a lovely one week stay at Ben Place Cottage.
The property is situated in a quiet location but just a short 5 to 10 minute
walk into the centre of Grasmere itself. The property is immaculate and
well presented with tasteful soft furnishings and good sized bedrooms
each with a separate bathroom facility. The kitchen is well equipped with
everything you need for a self catering holiday. From our initial inquiry to
arriving at this holiday cottage the owners Wendy and Hugh were quick to
answer any questions and provided full details on how to reach the property.
Also there is a comprehensive booklet on how to use the various appliance
with recommendations for eating out and shopping in the local area. We
would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to a return visit in
the near future.

“Tranquil setting”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We chose this cottage over staying at a local hotel, partly because most hotels were booked but more importantly we wanted the freedom and space, on arrival we were delighted we made this choice. The owners Wendy & Hugh are excellent to communicate with, they are very quick in their responses and their instructions in the house on how to use items are first class. They are also very helpful with any local knowledge you may have questions on. The cottage is tucked away in a small road just off the main Grasmere/Keswick road, so is easily accessible but very quiet and importantly for us has parking space for 2 -3 cars, in fact we never used our car for the week we were there. The cottage is only 8-10 minutes pleasant stroll into Grasmere with plenty of walks right from the door (recommend Alcock Tarn & Easedale Tarn) and many restaurants (recommend The Jumble Room & Lewis's) within a short walking distance. The Cottage is cosy, clean & spacious with just about all the facilities (of good standard and quality) you could want on a self catering holiday, in fact a "home from home" experience. Overall, we had an excellent stay in a well positioned "hidden gem" and certainly look forward to a return visit. Would highly recommend.

“Perfect spot for a relaxing Lake District getaway”

A lovely spot, tucked away down a very quiet lane with space for two cars to park off-road. The cottage is very well appointed and had everything we needed (except for the exceedingly minor oversight of cereal bowls). It's a short 5/10 min walk away from the heart of Grasmere - so has great access for shops/restaurants etc. Also very handy for getting out on the trails with some great walks starting only a few yards away from the front door. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would happily stay there again.

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. There are definitely cereal bowls at the cottage! We can only guess that the previous guests had moved things around and you didn't come across them, but they are definitely there - somewhere! Thanks again, Wendy & Hugh Taylor

The location is peaceful and quiet but you can walk to the busy centre of Grasmere within 10 minutes. Ideal location for central lakes giving you access to many wonderful walks and fells.
The cottage was very clean and well equipped with nice shower and bath which was essential after a long day walking and climbing.

Lovely cottage in ideal area only few minutes away from the touristy Grasmere.
Bring your boots and bikes. The cycle ways are brilliant and could certainly show our council a thing or two.
Wildlife abundant too.
