“Excellent as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had an excellent time in Grasmere again this year. Baker's Rest is an excellent high class property in a very central location to the centre and some good walks. We travelled with two young children this year and the property acted as a great base of operations. It has excellent facilities. It is situated right next door to an excellent restaurant that we visited twice after arranging a local baby sitting service. We will definitely be back next year.

“Disappointingly dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The bakers rest was inexcusably let down by being somewhat dirty - it appeared not to have been cleaned for some weeks. We were very dissappointed and put off having to clean thick dust of the dining table prior to eating. The toothbrush holder in the upstairs double room had dried and encrusted toothpaste 'left overs' from previous guests. The upstairs twin room had water leaking from the roof and running down the walls creating damp - not a pleasant sight. A shame as the cottage itself is lovely and a fantastic location. It just needs some TLC, basic maintenance and a very good clean.
