Spectacular Place for a Large Family
What can we say about The Grotto apart from it was magnificent! The ?mansion? size is amazing and there were 10 of us there and we were spoilt for room, comfort and luxury. We were welcomed with homemade cake and wine! It was a great base to visit the Lake District and had everything we could need! The garden was lovely and safe and secure parking. We would love to return and recommend anyone to go. The kids even had their own living room! Thanks

Fantastic Weekend
8 family members have just spent a fabulous long weekend at The Grotto! It was absolutely perfect - comfortable, warm, plenty loos and it was just so so good! Andy Sayer, who owns the property made us very welcome and encouraged us to go out and about and recommended several places to visit! We will definitely be back and would tell anyone to book up quickly!

The cottage is in perfect condition and made us feel comfortable and at home.

The quality of the property was very good and it was perfectly situated for our needs.

The cottage was of a very high standard with quality beds, crockery, cutlery, fantastic showers etc. The garden was just lovely and we felt very at home there. We couldn't of asked for a nicer place. Some great walks straight from the door too.
