Location description from owner

The England 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 .

Ambleside

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.

“Great find”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2016

We have stayed at Grove cottages before, albeit in the smaller Little Grove, so knew what to expect in the welcome , and we were not disappointed (Thank you Sarah) Inside the cottage everything was as we had expected with the bonus of a new bathroom being installed in between us having originally made the booking. The only reason we have for not giving this cottage an excellent rating is down to the bed which we found to be noisy if a restless night occurred (the bedding etc. being fine) Overall we had a enjoyable experience and have booked to return in August. The cottage is located at the end of an single track surfaced lane so is quite with a deceptive feeling of remoteness given its closeness to Ambleside.

“Great cottage with fantastic views”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2015

Stayed for a week in Grove Corner and loved it. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well furnished with all the necessary equipment we needed and more. It could be a little remote for some up a single track road on the side of a valley, but that suited us fine and Ambleside was only a few minutes away by car.

“A great location, but lacks attention to detail for true 5 star accommodation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

We stayed in Grove Corner in July 2015. The location, about a mile out of the centre of Ambleside up a farm track is very peaceful and there are lovely views. This property has the bedroom downstairs and the living accommodation upstairs. It is spacious for 2 people or a couple and a small child. There is a lovely view of mountains from the living room. The bedroom is really generous in terms of size, it is rather cold and dark, which was an advantage the week we stayed as it was hot, but I can imagine different in winter. Prices are top dollar but we found that it lacked absolute attention to detail in some respects, for example only a winter weight duvet was offered in the hottest week of the year, the lock on the main door was very difficult to operate, the dishwasher was tiny. Niggly things, but at over £500 for the week we expect perfection and have found it elsewhere. There was a member of staff, but they were only available during the day when most guests are out. Having said that we would go again if our no 1 choice was not available, mainly due to the lcoation.

“A great holiday in Ambleside”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

It was a comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage. Small details were not forgotten, a welcome pack, tablets for the dishwasher, a tray for muddy boots. Will definitely return.

“A peaceful, cozy home-from-home. Close to Ambleside but feels like you're way up in the Fells.”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2015

My partner, our 11 month old and I have just spent a week in Grove Corner Cottage. It was perfectly located for a break touring the better-known areas of the Lakes. There were plenty of attractions suitable for young children within close striking distance, including some beautiful short walks (some even suited to prams). Ambleside is just the right distance away - very accessible for the shops, cafes, restaurants etc, but far enough to make you feel like you're away up in the Fells...especially when you wake in the morning and can hear nothing but the bleating of the sheep and you watch the swifts darting about outside the window. The cottage itself is extremely well appointed and really comfortable. The weather was very changeable whilst we were there; we found the accommodation made a great retreat when the rain and wind came in, but was also light enough to make the most of the sunshine and fantastic views when we were treated to some more clement conditions. We also found that we had all the equipment we needed to accommodate our baby, including stair gates, baby bath and highchair. Moreover, the efficient manager of the cottages was on-hand to help out if we needed anything (such as when the Wi-fi went down). There really was very little to complain about...just wish that we had been able to get perfect weather every day of our holiday, but that's a big ask for the Lake District!!

“Fabulous location”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2015

Comfortable cottage in a great location. Walks from the doorstep, and all the amenities of Ambleside either a short drive, or an energetic walk away.

“Amazing”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2014

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”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2014

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”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2014

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”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2013

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!
