“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Cottage was a bit more isolated than I had expected, but was well equipped and quiet. It is very close to Outgate Inn and Hawkeshead is only a couple of miles away. There are walking tracks close by, but a survey map is required to know where these go to.
We used the cottage as a base and made trips to Hawkeshead, Coniston, Ambleside and Keswick. We especially enjoyed the lakeside walks.

“Perfect for couples visiting the Lakes”

This cottage is in a good location to access Ambleside, Hawkshead and Windemere. We spent 4 days at the cottage and it has everything you need. The only thing it does not have is wifi but it depends whether you need it or not. The cottage has many booklets and leaflets on things to do in the area and you certainly cannot be bored. We felt very safe and secure in the cottage.

“Perfect location, so cosy!”

It was really easy to book the cottage for a last minute break with my boyfriend. In Feb the cottage provided a cosy and comfortable place to rest after a day walking and exploring in Ambleside. About £15 in a taxi to the town at night for a great meal and drinks. The kitchen in the cottage was well equipped to make dinner on the following night. The best feature? THE LOG BURNER! If you want a break from the hustle and bustle this place is perfect, felt perfectly relaxed afterwards!
PS. be warned mobile phone signal is minimal at the cottage and there is no internet signal! You really are at one with nature!

This cottage is exactly as described. A really homely feel with plenty of space for two. Everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable.
Grizedale is between Ambleside and Hawkshead which is ideal for touring all of the Lake District. The Outgate pub is a short walk down the lane and serves lovely meals, we ate there three times during our weeks stay.
The booking process was really easy and we would definitely stay here again.
