“A wet but warm weekend”

We have just spent a weekend in Grasmere on what must have been the wettest weekend of the year. However arriving at Buttercrag Cottage on late Friday evening we found that Martin, the owner, had ensured the heating was left on for a warm and cosy welcome.
The house, which is ideally situated within walking distance of all the village amenities,was clean, the beds comfortable and the dining kitchen had plenty of crockery and cooking equipment.
The pleasant owner arrived the next morning to check all was well and was helpful without being intrusive.
The weather was atrocious but armed with plenty of waterproofs we made the most of local walks and was glad to return to comfortable, warm accommodation
We would certainly consider returning again!.

Location A1. We have previously stayed in hotel accommodation but with younger family members in the group felt it was time to go self-catering and the experience was most enjoyable. The property had all you need for this type of holiday, although the one shower on top floor proved very popular. Good restaurants were in abundance but advise you book ahead to ensure seats.

My wife and I stayed here with our two grown up children and their partners, the location was perfect, we enjoyed the privacy of our outdoor seating area next to the river and also had the luxury of being a step away from fabulous restaurents and shops. We all used the swimming pool facilities in a nearby hotel which were amazing. Martin welcomed us on our arrival and reassured us he would be there if we needed him, (which we didn't)
We would certainly recommend this cottage and location and cannot wait to return next year
Thank you Martin for a much needed , great holiday. Hope to see you next year !

“Delightful Cottage”

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for 4 nights with my elderly parents. We had a wonderful holiday. The location of the cottage was absolutely perfect being so close to the shops and bars. The setting was beautiful. We never grew tired of sitting in the courtyard area, enjoying the view and listening to the river flowing by. It was idyllic. The cottage itself was pleasantly decorated and very homely. The only slight negative I would say were the very steep stairs up to the upper bedroom which provided us with some good exercise!! I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone who was looking for a cottage in Grasmere. Very reasonably priced too.

Beautifully situated in the heart of Grassmere Village, quiet & picturesque. Shops, Pubs & eateries galore all within easy walking distance.
Excellent Internet/Wifi in the property. Ample parking outside.
Well equipped kitchen. Owner Martin very helpful & easy to contact.
We had a fantastic stay, (it wasn't long enough!), & would definately come again. Highly recommend to other family & friends.
Note: We thought this property not suitable for elderly/infirm or people with disabilities, due to the location of the shower on the second floor.

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

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.
