Little Grove is situated on the upper level of our Lakeland stone barn. A wealth of lovely Cumbrian slate and original timbers keep the country atmosphere in what is the perfect cottage for two. The galleried kitchen is well equipped with an electric fan-assisted oven and hob, microwave and fridge. The round kitchen table and chairs in old pine provide an intimate dining area for two. The lounge area has a comfy sofa and arm chair for relaxing in front of the wood burning stove. A flat-screen TV/DVD player & wireless internet access are on hand for those who wish to keep in touch with the outside world. The double bedroom is furnished with solid pine furniture and leads to a modern & bright ensuite bathroom. From the garden and sun terrace outside the lounge window you can sit in the quietness looking up to Wansfell over the fields, or watch the stars in the clear mountain air. These superb views can also be enjoyed from your armchair in the lounge. Little Grove is an ideal spot to rest your weary legs after a hard days walking on the fells as well as a bolt-hole to curl up with a book on those less-than-perfect Lakeland weather days.

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 setting, lovely cottages and the perfect place to get away from it all. We've been three years running now and can't imagine a time when we won't try and stay here every year. We find the cottage is located the ideal distance away from Ambleside - a few minutes drive up the valley but it feels like you're miles away from anywhere with views stretching right down the valley towards Windermere and beyond. Ambleside is15 mins walk downhill into the town and, depending on your pace, 20-30 mins walk back uphill (although if we fancy a taxi after an evening out we've never struggled to get one). The cottages are good value and really cosy and comfortable. Highly recommended.

"The ideal cottage for two. So comfortable and set in a stunning location close to well-known walks."
Returned for a second year and found it as good as the first time. After long walks it is good to soak in a deep bath and then sit in front of the log burner. The cottage had everything we required to enjoy our holiday. I would have no hesitation about returning again

"I wouldn't book anywhere else..."
This was our second stay at Grove Cottages (the first was in Grove Corner for our honeymoon, the second was in Little Grove for our wedding anniversary) and will be booking again! Perfectly peaceful, but just a short walk down hill to Ambleside.

"Cosy, very comfortable, well equipped accomodation in a beautiful location."
The accommodation is just big enough for two people but there is all the equipment needed. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was great to be able to step outside and sit in a courtyard with a lovely view.
The garden and courtyard are shared with the other cottages.
The area is excellent for walking. It is a great location for the central and southern Lake District. There is a reliable bus service through Ambleside. The information in the Reception area is very useful especially other guests comments on local eating places.
There is no large supermarket very near, so it is best to come prepared.

We really enjoyed our time at Little Grove. It,s in a great location with beautiful views and within easy reach of Ambleside by car. The cottage is well equipped to a high standard and a bonus is the log burner.

"A perfect, cosy cottage for two set in the hills above Ambleside with everything we needed!"
We were delighted with this cottage for two. The rooms were efficiently organised providing everything we required. The log burner with supply of logs was a real bonus even though the rooms were all heated well. The king size bed was very comfortable, the bath amazing and the guidebooks supplied very useful. We enjoyed our stay immensely!

"Half term break away"
After a very long journey we finally arrived into Ambleside. We weren't too sure we were heading to the right place after following a long narrow track but arrived at a cosy, comfortable and spotless cottage! The log fire was just what we needed as the weather was very cold.
The cottage was perfect; comfy bed, cosy log fire, milk in the fridge when we arrived, parking disc for use in Ambleside and a handy ultility room to wash and dry our clothes when they got wet. We had a lovely stay and are already thinking about returning again.

"Wow! Completely taken aback! A Fantastic place to stay!"
As a young couple we were looking for a cheap holiday in the Lakes to take a break from work. After much searching we found Little Grove, and it was cheap!
We arrived in the dark having followed the fantastic directions supplied and stepped into a warm and beautiful cottage. The whole place was wonderfully decorated and had everything we could have wanted in the kitchen.
The cottage was clean and tidy, with milk in the fridge and tea/coffee and hot chocolate supplied!
You can walk into Ambleside in about 20mins or if you are just popping in there is lots of 1hr disk zones to park in. We walked many walks straight from the front door with help from all of the info supplied to all guests.
Overall a fantastic stay, Sarah the owner is most helpful and we wish her the best of luck in the future with her amazing cottages!

"Awesome - will definitely be back"
Little Grove really is a hidden Gem. The cottage is clean, cosy and well fitted out with quality furnishings/fittings and has a lovely warm atmosphere.
The location is great, lots of walks from the door, but close (but not too close) to nearby Ambleside.
Sarah the manager was great and extremely helpful.
Would definitely recommend!

"Outstanding - the best I've ever found in the Lakes!"
Just delightful: great location; very comfortable; excellent decoration; helpful friendly staff; beautiful views...It's a mile and a half up the hill from Ambleside so not great if you want to be… More
