“An excellent place to Stay”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a lovely place to stay. The house is very well equipped and we found welcoming touches such as a pint of milk, biscuits and flowers on the table. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and relaxing looking at the stunning and ever changing views. The fact that we could walk from the house not having to take cars was a bonus and we completed 3 walks including one up to Red Screes on the ridge opposite. The position was central and we were able to reach other areas easily. The central bathroom with one toilet could have been a problem with 4 adults in the morning but we seemed to manage! The road down to Ambleside is steep but not impossible even after a days walking! (20 - 25 minutes return uphill)

“Miss”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We've just returned from a fabulous week at High Grove. It's a stunning cottage with mesmerising views of Red Scree and down the valley to Ambleside.
We walked to Ambleside most evenings (approx 1.5 miles) and caught a taxi home if are weary legs weren't up to the treck home.
The cottage has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The washing machine was a God send after cycling through a downpour.
I can't wait to go back!

“Excellent small family accommodation”

We arrived late at night, ,after driving 7 hours, to a warm cosy little cottage.There were home made biscuits and milk in the fridge to welcome us which was such a lovely touch. We booked this place to be a switch off from our mad lives in London, and this place definitely provided that for us! It was clean, well thought out with almost every kitchen item you may need,fabulous views, excellent reception room filled with information, games and maps for local walks, booking was easy and the host was very helpful. Fantastic week, and would recommend to anyone who is very fussy about cleanliness like me, because this place was spotless.

If there was one thing the cottage could improve on it would be upgrading their sheets - but this is very minor.
