person found this review helpful

What a week: sun and warmth in the Lake District in April! After a tough time at work, we decided to take a last minute break and were fortunate to find space at Grisedale Cottage. Glenridding is fast becoming a second home and I just wish it was closer to my first! The cottage is comfortable with everything one could need in the kitchen, and it has a brand new bathroom. Chris and John are right over the road if anything goes wrong - it didn't - and there are various pubs and eateries within easy walking distance. We arrived back home revitalised.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

i have stayed in lots of holiday cottages in the UK and Ireland and this has to be one of the best. The location is fabulous with walks galore on your doorstep. Both long and high level walks and less strenuous ones at a lower level. Several pubs within easy walking distance all serving reasonable food. The cottage itself is very very clean and comfortable with all you need. Wifi is available which for those that want it a real bonus. Walking into a room with a lit fire and some cake was a real treat. The owners really go that extra mile to make you feel welcome which can be seen in the standard of the cottage. Highly recommended to couples wanting a break from it all and a real treat.

“very very warm and cosy”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

cottage is in excellent spot with dedicated parking(absolute necessity I feel).
Ideal for a chill out or a walking base.
when we arrived.. fire was lit so we felt at home right away.
downstairs bedroom and toilet /shower so ideal also for less able.
local pubs and shops excellent.

very clean and well maintained.
added benefit is the sauna///after a cold brisk walk I bet this would be sheer Heaven.

“Great Base for workers or walkers”
Reviewed 29 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We were actually staying in the cottage whilst doing some DIY work, so would not normally choose January. I had been worried that the cottage would be very cold with it being January and with snow on the ground but this was not the case at all. Once we got the heaters on and the log burner stoked up we were as cosy as could be and it was great to return to the cottage after a day outside working in this stunning location. I especially liked listening to the Tawny and Barn owls which we could hear as soon as it became dusk - perfect location for fans of Harry Potter I guess! Take your own Broomstick!

It is also within good walking distance of local pubs in either direction, and if we had not been working we would certainly have been off up the hills as there are enough walks.

Facilities were good in the kitchen and living room and the bathroom looked brand new to me. I know the B and B at Grisedale Lodge is very well respected and I am sure that a large group could book both and be very very happy.

Thank for your the superb new shelving that you have installed at Grisedale Cottage and for taking the time to write a review. It is a lovely warm and cosy cottage and it's great being able to come back to the warmth of the woodburner. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you get to enjoy some of the walks next time!

“Fabulous cottage, highly recommended!”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Absolutely charming cottage, immaculately clean, equipped with everything we could possibly require.
Wonderful friendly owners. The fire was lit, Xmas tree was decorated and twinkling in the conservatory, chocolates and homemade biscuits were provided too for our new year stay, Christine and John had thought of everything! The cottage is located in a beautiful spot ideal for exploring the walks in the area.
We really couldn't recommend the cottage enough, and next time we are in the uk we will definitely visit again, thank you John and Christine for a wonderful stay.
