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.

Cottage was well equipped, fabulous views, very welcoming and quiet. Walk into Ambleside beautiful. Would highly recommend a stay. Great place to chill out and walk from.

"Very high quality accommodation in a beautiful location"
This cottage is very well furnished and equipped for self catering. The location is near enough to Ambleside to make it readily accessible yet out of the bustle of a popular tourist centre. The views from Grove Farm are fabulous and the cottage provides the opportunity to walk from the door step on to the fells surrounding. for both long and short walks. Having wifi was an added and very welcome bonus.

"Lovely stay at the stunning Grove Cottages"
Grove Cottages are based near Ambleside, though I would say you need a car as they're a little drive out of the town centre, up some rather steep hills. When you arrive it's one of the most picturesque views I've ever seen, really stunning. We stayed in Grove Corner with a double bedroom and ensuite and a lovely little lounge and kitchen area upstairs. The cottage had everything we needed and the location was amazing. We spent quite a bit of time sitting on the bench in the front garden overlooking the hills and reading our books. The information room and guest book was filled with lots of useful information and recommendations about where to go and what to do. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and we'd certainly love to return in the future.

"Everything we wanted"
We stayed at Grove Corner for a week with our 10 week old baby.
The location is stunning with beautiful views of the hills around town, but also convenient - Ambleside is a 5 minute drive or a 30/40 min walk. The setting - a farm - is idyllic. It is immaculately clean and very tastefully decorated. The booking process was easy and the manager was very helpful. We were sad to leave!

"The perfect base from which to explore the Lake District"
This is the second time that I have stayed at Grove Cottages and hopefully I'll get the chance to go back again. Great facilities and a great location.

"Lovely group of cottages set in spectacular location with breathtaking views"
The spacious cottage is one of five located in a valley and set in rural countryside approximately 1 mile from Ambleside with ample parking and is very safe for young children. On arrival there was a vase of fresh flowers, milk in the fridge, a range of sachets for drinks and a plate of biscuits which we thought was a very nice touch. The cottage is upside down so the lounge and kitchen/diner are upstairs. The views are spectacular. The decor is very pleasant, in keeping with a country cottage, pine and squashy settees which are comfortable and homely. The facilities are very good. The log burner in the lounge is electric but is a nice feature. The kingsize bed was very comfortable. The en-suite is well-appointed, all towels and linen are provided, the shower is very efficient and there was always plenty of hot water. We found the use of free wi fi very useful. All the furnishings and fittings are of good condition. There is a back door leading to a pretty shared patio area. The Information Room is full of brochures with ideas of things to do and places to go. There are many walks you can do from the cottage without using your car. It is an excellent location for exploring The Lake District. The scenery in Autumn is magnificent. A little expensive but worth it.

"Breathtaking setting but a fairly long walk from Ambleside"
Great little place, with stunning gardens and views over Ambleside and the surrounding peaks. Well furnished, clean, cosy.
It is a good 40 minute walk uphill from Ambleside to the cottages though, which is the only downside if you want to go out for dinner etc etc

"Fantastic tranquil holiday"
We stayed at Grove Corner for one week and then Middle Grove for another week. It really is a fantastic place for me to clear my mind, enjoy the fresh air, and enjoy Lakes District. The cottage is on top of a hill at the end of a road and there's no traffic. The only sound you hear is the occasional "baa" from sheep grazing, and birds chirping. At night we enjoyed just sitting outside and chatting. There's a small stream that runs through the property.
Booking was easy via http://www.grovecottages.com , and the people running the place were very helpful.
The cottages are complete with a kitchen, LCD TV, DVD player, satellite TV, washer/ dryer and the thing I like most is the high speed wifi internet connection.
This place is really unique, and it really deserves its place as the Number 1 accommodation in the area on Trip Advisor.

"Fabulous car free walking base to explore Ambleside and beyond"
Grove Cottages are a delightful conversion of an old Lakeland farm and outbuildings perched above Ambleside and over looking the Kirkstone pass. The quality of the accommodation is first class, as is the service you get, either on fthe phone, direct or on line. The location, combined with staying on a farm was the real attraction for us (the owners are busy repairing an old field barn). It measn you can arrive by car if you choose, and then leave it all week and just walk from the cottages without ever doing a walk twice.

Fabulous location with stunning scenery and absolute peace and quiet. We had a wonderful week here in spite of pretty terrible weather. This is pretty much the place I have hunted for for years and failed to find as some more unscrupulous holiday companies are a little less honest with their descriptions. Not Grove Cottages I am pleased to say. Everything was as described and the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful.
We stayed in Grove Corner which was very private, clean, well appointed and had absolutely everything we needed. We had trouble prising ourselves off the extremely comfy sofa as we were pretty burnt out when we arrived. After a few days in the fresh air and the tranquility of Grove Cottages in the evenings, we both felt refreshed and relaxed - exactly what we needed.
Lots of walks available immediately from the cottage so no need to get in the car if you don't want to.
Ambleside is easily walkable but we would recommend a car or taxi if you are in a hurry or want to get dressed up to go out.
