Although this cottage is spacious it still retains a cosy rustic charm with a liberal peppering of original beams and exposed slate walls. To take advantage of the spectacular views over Loughrigg to the Old Man of Coniston, the living room and kitchen areas are upstairs. Off the large entrance hall there is a very spacious double bedroom with en-suite shower room. The stairs lead up to the bright and airy lounge, which features solid pine flooring, a slate fire place and exposed stone walls.
Freesat TV and a wireless internet connection are provided for your convenience, along with a DVD player and CD stereo. The kitchen and dining area has been handbuilt by local craftsmen out of old pine, and is equipped with all the facilities you would expect to find in a modern kitchen, including a dishwasher.
To the rear of the cottages there is a secluded garden with fantastic views to Wansfell Pike, which dominates the skyline. The garden has seating and a BBQ area. Grove corner is ideal for couples and small families who like to 'spread out' whilst on holiday.

The Cumbria/Lake District region
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 .
The Ambleside area
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.

Rural / countryside retreats

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.

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

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.
