The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District - from dramatic fells to sleepy shores, this is nature at its most inventive. With England's five tallest mountains and deepest lake, two national parks, three areas of outstanding natural beauty and a wealth of flora and fauna, Cumbria's rich natural environment is simply unique. The landscape is a real wonder of nature. Impressive peaks rise grandly, reflected in still waters. At their feet, intriguing valleys lie waiting to be explored.
There is also a social landscape to explore that has been formed over thousands of years and continues to be shaped by modern culture. From poignant ruins and drover trails to local legends and literary works, the region's history and heritage has played a defining role in the county's identity. But in recent years, another dimension has been added to Cumbria's unique personality in the form of contemporary theatre and dance, street art and state of the art galleries .
Ambleside, at the head of Windermere and the foot of the Kirkstone Pass, is in the very heart of the Lake District with easy access to Grasmere, Keswick, Windermere and the Langdales.
There are numerous activities close by including:-
-Grizdale Forest – walks, mountain biking and Go Ape
-Langdale Valley - great for walking
-Windermere, Coniston & Ullswater – kayaking, sailing and boat trips
-Hill Top – the home of Beatrix Potter
-The Aquarium and Steam Railway at Lakeside
-Brockholes National Park Centre
-Huge range of shops and restaurants, plus 3 cinemas in Ambleside.

"Beautiful farmhouse in a beautiful location."
This is a lovely farmhouse at the end of a very long lane. It is very well equipped and it was ideal for our party, my husband and I with our 3 year old and 19 month old daughters and 2 sets of grandparents. The bedrooms were lovely and the bathrooms were spacious. There are 2 living rooms, we never used the second and a big dining room and a kitchen with a dining table.
It was lovely for the children to be in such a rural location, the only cars were those of other guests so it was very safe. That said there is a small stream in the garden which our youngest daughter fell in!
All in all very nice for a family holiday.

"Luxury farmhouse cottage in superb location with stunning views"
My third visit to Grove Cottages and it won't be the last. Previously stayed twice in High Grove, which is excellent for 4/5 people, but the Farmhouse is ideal for a larger number. Everything is to the same very high standard, and it's really spacious so everyone can spread out and do their own thing if they want to ... there's always a quiet place to read the paper or a book whatever else is going on. The sun room was a very popular spot and at time resembled a library!
It's about a 20-25 minute walk to and from Ambleside town centre, with marvellous views all around, especially back over Ambleside to Loughrigg and the Langdale Valley beyond. Relatively few walkers seem to use the road and footpath up as far as Grove Cottages and beyond, and with no cars other than those of fellow guests it's a very tranquil spot.
No hesitation in recommending Grove Farmhouse and giving five stars - it looks very good on the Grove Cottages web site but even that can't do it justice. It won't disappoint.

"Great getaway in the very hart of the Lake district"
Grove Farmhouse is a large, comfortable house, situated in a very secluded area, but nonetheless only a few miles from the centre of Ambleside. So close to the shops, but far from all stress.
All things we needed were present in the house, and we had a great stay.
The only minus, which only occurs if you come for the first time, is that you should know that it is situated at the very end of the street, so where necessary, you have to open (and close) gates, etc.

"The perfect Lake District get away - do not hesitate to book!"
This was our second visit to the farmhouse at Grove Cottages and on returning we found the accommodation to be exactly as we remembered.. Clean, cosy, well equipped, spacious, everything that you need for a great family stay.
The farmhouse sits snuggling into the hillside about a mile and a half walk from the town which we found our young children were able to walk without trouble - the views making it worthwhile.
The accommodation is so nice we found it difficult to want to go out in the evening, choosing rather to spend the February evenings by the fireside. Just what a busy family needed.
We hope to stay again in the not so distant future.

"EVEN MY MOTHER-IN-LAW COULDNT FAULT IT!"
We have been back for 4 years on the run and would highly recommend Grove Cottages to friends and family. The property is faultless and the views are exceptional. The owners have thought of everything to cater for young families.

Located in a quiet sport just a stone's throw away from Ambleside, this is the perfect place for a relaxing yet sportive break.
Furnished and decorated with great taste, Groves Cottages offer a home feeling comfort with beautiful landscapes right in front of you.
Whether you are travelling with your familly or your friends, this place has everything you need! I hightly recommend it - As my first time in the Lake District, Groves Cottages played 90% in my desire to go back very soon (the 10% left being for the hikes!)
Many thanks for the kind words - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again some day soon!

We stayed in the farmhouse which was very spacious, with plenty of room for 8 adults.Well equiped and furnished, comfy beds with quality linen, and plenty of fluffy towels and good bathrooms, very cosy and warm, lovely garden.Fantastic views. other cottages attached, but not a problem. Quite a good walk back from Ambleside after an evening out. Would definitely return.

"Peace, tranquility, comfort, lotssof space and sstunning views"
I've just returned from two weeks staying in The Farmhouse, Grove Farm with my wife, teenage son and three family friends. We had a fantastic time, helped enormously by the comfort and quality of the accommodation. The cottage itself is large, even with six people staying together. The utility room was really useful, the extra sitting room and games machine kept the younger members of the party happy. The kitchen was a good size and had all we needed, and the dining room was again comfortably large. Beds were large and comfortable. The whole place was very clean on arrival. The staff were polite, helpful but also totally unobtrusive. The location itself is stunning; great views, real peace and quiet and yet only a few minutes into Ambleside for supplies.
