“So lovely I don't want other people to know about it so it's free for me next time!”
Little Grove was absolutely delightful- super cosy and comfortable with lots of little extra touches. Travelling to the Lakes in November we enjoyed having such a welcoming place to rest our weary feet in front of the fire from the rain and the cold. The location is also superb- it feels remote and peaceful whilst also only being a short drive from Ambleside.
Excellent little cottage, perfect for a week away. Warm, had everything we needed and more. Beautifully decorated to a high standard in a perfect location. The weather wasn't kind we had sun, snow, rain and gales but the house provided us with warmth after a bracing walk and peace to rewind. We cant wait to go back
We really enjoyed our stay at Little Grove - had an excellent week in August. The cottages are nicely located about a 20 to 30 minute walk from Ambleside in some lovely countryside. Everything was clean, cosy and nicely decorated. There is a reception area with lots of information on various walks and activities which we found helpful. Will be recommending to friends and family as a great place to stay.
“Exactly what we needed”
This is our second stay at this cottage which says a lot in its self, both our stays have started with warm welcomes and a clean cottage with all that we required for a weeks stay. The location is great, being at the end of lane so traffic noise is not an issue ,but close enough to Ambleside and all its shops and restaurant's that you are not feeling totally isolated.
“Very cosy and welcoming”
I have stayed at Grove Farm before, it was a long time ago when peter and Zorika Thompson owned the properties, in those days it was a working farm and my children up on holidays there helping out on the farm, we went for seven years in a row they were great holidays with great memories. Little Grove was the only one I hadn't staying in having family it was not big enough so I thought I would book a week with my new partner and wasn't disappointed the only thing missing was the farmer and his wife. Little Grove was tastefully decorated keeping all the original charms that had won me over on previous holidays spent there. The only thing I would say was that the other holidaymakers kept themselves to themselves which is of course a choice but I used to enjoy seating and chatting in the evening and often having a shared BBQ. Al in all a lovely time was had and I would make a return trip perhaps with family again.
“very welcoming cottage with excellent views”
A clean, tidy, well equipped and very comfortable at the very end of Stockghyll Road about a pleasant 15-20 minutes walk out of Ambleside centre with wonderful views over the valley to the Struggle and Red Screes. It was ideally placed for easy access to many parts of the Lakes with several walks accessible from the cottage, and plenty of outdoor seating.The site manager, Sarah, was on site quite often and very approachable and helpful. A little idiosyncratic, the kettle "sang" when the water reached a certain temperature and the fridge "chuntered" a bit but otherwise it was very peaceful. I would most certainly hope to visit again because it is so well placed for so many activities and places to visit.
Our stay to Little Grove cottage was perfect. The area is wonderful sourrounded by nature. Closed to Ambleside center. The cottage was cosy, well decorated and confortable. We definitely recommand this place !
“An absolute gem!”
My boyfriend and I stayed at Little Grove for 4 nights during October half term. What an amazing little cottage and a great find! It's located a 5 minute drive up a country lane from the centre of Ambleside, basically at the end of the track, as far as you can go. Perfect location, so quiet and peaceful and at night......pitch black! No light pollution so great for seeing the stars and getting a good nights sleep. The cottage had everything we needed, we chose to cook 3 out of the 4 nights and easily managed to make a full Sunday roast with the facilities and utensils provided. The little touches were much appreciated too, the milk in the fridge, the fresh flowers on the table and the free and readily available supply of firewood for the log burner. The use of a washing machine and dryer was also great after wet, muddy walks. The only negatives we could think of are the water pressure for the shower is a little poor, we do like a good powerful shower! And the kettle was very noisy.....no sneaking out to make an early morning brew whilst the other is still asleep with that noise! Overall we loved it at Little Grove and we will definitely be going back! :)
“Little Grove was a lovely cottage and would love to go back.”
We have just got back from a weeks stay at Little Grove cottage with our three month old daughter and can't fault it what so ever, we had a fantastic time. The location is a bit further out of Ambleside than we expected, it was a five minute drive up a steep hill and then along a single track lane over a few cattle grids, so it isn't really walkable after a evening meal or anything, but the location actually worked out better for us with our three month old baby, the cottage is set into the hillside with fantastic views and a lovely secluded garden that trapped the evening sun. Little Grove is cosy but is the perfect size for a couple and even with our little baby there was just enough room. It has been restored beautifully and was very well equipped, washing liquid, etc were all provided. Little Grove was great value for money compared to other cottages we looked at. We would definately return to Little Grove again.
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.
