Fantastic place for Christmas
Our family booked this last minute and don't understand why it was available as it's turned out to be the most perfect place to spend Christmas! A warm and cosy cottage with everything you need for a lovely stay. The cottage has been decorated for Christmas which is a lovely touch. If you're thinking about this place - I would not think twice! Just book! Now looking forward to a walk up Helm Crag from our front door and then Christmas dinner. Merry Christmas all.

A really nice cottage.
Five of us stayed here and there was plenty of room for all of us. We found the cottage to have everything we needed and was very cosy and comfortable. There was a washer/dryer which we found useful and central heating as well as all you need in the kitchen. There were even board games provided. You do need to take your own towels and toilet roll. It was convenient for everything in Grasmere and many walks started nearby. It was very close to the car park for which we were given one permit and we didn't find it too expensive to park the second car. A couple of small things to mention are that the bathroom blind didn't work and as it is on the ground floor at the front of the house that was a bit tricky. Also one of the walls in the living room was very damp. There was some noise until the restaurant next door had closed but after that it was fine. We all enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again if in Grasmere.

Really lovely cottage.
Five of us stayed at this cottage for a short break so that three members of our party could climb Helvellyn. We left it rather late to book so we're very pleased to see that it was such a nice cottage. It has everything you could need including a washer/dryer and the kitchen is very well equipped. It also has central heating. We found it very cosy. It is very handy for everything in Grasmere and close to the car park. We had two cars and you get one parking permit but it wasn't too expensive to park the other car. The only fault I could find was that the bathroom blind doesn't work and that is a little awkward as the cottage is right on the road. Also the back wall of the living room is very damp. The fact that is on the road makes it quite noisy at night. The staff from the next door restaurant park right under the bedroom windows and make a lot of noise when they go home at night and often leave the door open with music playing. They also have outside furniture right outside one of the bedroom windows and one night made a lot of noise dragging it inside. After that though it is perfectly quiet, just don't go to bed too early. A really nice cottage and I would stay there again if in Grasmere.

Very comfortable, well-stocked cottage in the centre of Grasmere
The cottage is well situated, very comfortable and had plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked which made cooking and eating there a delight. I would definitely return.

We recently stayed at Rowan cottage and we're rather disappointed with some aspects. The details online are not clear . The cottage that comes up as the main photo isn't Rowan cottage.There is a photo of it in the gallery but why do you need to see a different cottage at all? The downstairs ensuite shower room doesn't have a toilet. As we had chosen this because we were travelling with an elderly relative that was a problem. Again i think the details should have pointed that out. The ensuite also smelled very badly of damp and we spent all weekend trying to get rid of the smell as the smell continued into the bedroom. The cooker has replacement knobs so you can't tell what temperature it's set at. Could be lovely just needs a bit of attention . Expected better for what we paid.
