High Grove is a magnificently spacious 3 storey cottage, situated at the end of the stone barn. There are fanstastic views to Kirkstone Pass, Red Screes and the Langdale Valley. The property has undergone a sympathetic conversion leaving the majority of stone walls and original timbers on show. The front door leads into the flag floored cloakroom with steps up to the inner hall, off which are one double and one twin-bedded room, both with lots of character and pine furniture. A shared bathroom (adjoined to both bedrooms) completes the picture downstairs. The kitchen, dining and living spaces all occupy the stunning open-plan first floor. Quality craftsmanship is on show everywhere, from the hand built kitchen (which features modern conveniences such as a dishwasher) to the solid pine furniture and flooring. A large flat screen Satellite TV with DVD and wireless internet access are on hand to while away the hours, and a more traditional selection of books and games are kept as an alternative to the x-box. The the open mezzanine 3rd floor provides even more space to chill out and take in the views, and can also sleep a 5th guest if required. High Grove is the ideal choice for those who value spacious, high quality accommodation for their Lakeland stay.

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

Having recently had our first baby we decided to try a self catering arrangement rather than hotel or B&B and how glad are we that we did! Firstly, High Grove appears to be part of a converted barn,... more

A beautiful setting, so private yet close enough to Ambleside. All staff from the booking to the arrival were excellent. The kitchen had all we needed and the extra touches of having board games, high chair, stair gates, XBox were so helpful with children. Very comfortable.

What a wonderful stay we had at Grove Cottages. Five of us stayed at High Grove, 2 adults and 3 children aged 3, 7 and 8. We loved the cottage, there was plenty of room throughout and was well equipped with everything you need to make your self at home. The views from inside High Grove are outstanding. Location was perfect, with plenty of room outside, the kids loved playing around in the gardens, and for adults to relax and enjoy the views. It was great to step out of the door and get straight onto the fells for some walking.
We would without a doubt love to stay at Grove Cottages again.
