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

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.

“Beautiful cottage stay!”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2016

We have stayed at the smaller property 'Little Grove' twice before and really enjoyed it. This time with four of us we chose 'High Grove' and what a beautiful cottage it is. The extra space and the luxurious bathroom were much appreciated. It was a good week of weather and so we walked from the cottage on all but one day and it was so lovely to return to a most comfortable cottage. The views down the valley from the lounge window at sunset was a real bonus!

“Comfortable accommodation in a fabulous location”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2015

We rented this property for the October half term holidays and were completely bowled over by it's stunning location. It is situated close to Ambleside on the top of a hill and is very peaceful and quite (except for one morning when they seemed to be transporting cows from the barns). The accommodation itself was nicely equipped and included everything necessary for a comfortable stay. It was especially nice to find enough bin liners, washing up liquid, detergents, etc. so we did not have to spend time shopping for them. Only niggles we had were that some of the heating thermostats did not work properly and one of the lamps would not switch on but it didn't bother us enough to complain. We would definitely return for another holiday.

“Tolle Lage, super renoviert und sehr schön. Leider Probleme mit dem Internet”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr schön hergerichtet und gut ausgestattet. Die Schlafzimmer sind etwas klein geraten, in einem geht die Tür nur halb auf, weil sie dann schon am ersten Bett anschlägt. Die Steuerung der Heizung ist etwas schwierig, wir haben da ein paar Tage gebraucht um das richtig hin zu kriegen. Wir waren mit 3 Kindern zwischen 8 und 14 Jahren da und da war es ein großes Problem, dass das Internet die ganze Woche nicht funktioniert hat. Darauf hatten wir bei der Buchung wert gelegt, eine Wohnung mit Internetanschluss zu haben, damit die Kinder mit ihren Freunden in den sozialen Netzwerken auch Kontakt halten können. Trotz einer Urgenz am Montag konnte aber das Problem bis Samstag nicht gelöst werden. Personal vom Vermieter ist nur sporadisch anzutreffen. Wir haben nur am Montag und dann noch einmal kurz jemanden gesehen. Ansonsten ist man auf sich alleine gestellt. Es stehen aber viele vorbereitete Informationen zu Verfügung. Also nicht zu viel von der "Reception" erwarten: Da sind nur Anschlagtafeln und Schlüsselsafes zu finden. Wenn man auf die Segnungen der modernen Technik keine Wert legt, ist die Wohnung durchaus zu empfehlen. Persönlichen Service darf man sich aber nicht erhoffen.

“Stunning surroundings, high quality accommodation, ideal for exploring the lakes area”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2015

We stayed for a week with two kids aged 3 and 5 end of June, start of July. The cottage has all the necessities as advertised and more. All the appliances are modern and easy to use. Some little extras like salt and pepper, aluminium foil and dishwasher detergent very appreciated. Parking and access are very easy. The bedrooms and living area where very comfortable. High grove is very close to Ambelside (probably the nicest town in the lakes) yet far enough to feel away form it all. The vies for the living rooms are stunning.

“Hidden Gem”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2014

Perfect location for exploring Ambleside and the surrounding Lake Windemere area. Amazingly quiet, away from the crowds that seem to have descended on Ambleside lately. The barn conversion has been done to the highest standard and very sympathetic to Cumbrian architecture. Well appointed, TV and WiFi available if you can't let go of modern technology. Cattle and sheep grazing just out the door, walk for miles. Amazing views. The long, narrow, private drive is a mixed blessing. It's a bit far to walk into town on a regular basis and getting a last minute cab can be a problem, so a car is probably necessary. Just be prepared to back up on the off chance you run into another guest vehicle and avoid the large number of hikers.

“Beyond reproach - location, facilities, peaceful”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2014

We stayed with another couple in the 'High Grove' flat which is on the end of the development, has 1 dbl and 1 twin bedroom linked to a shared bathroom on the ground floor, a large combined kitchen and lounge upstairs and a minstrels gallery snug in the roof space. Grove cottage is at the end of a mile and a half lane that climbs the valley from Ambleside, and continues as a track leading to the Kirkstone Inn - a family friendly 1hr+ hike; it took 25 mins down to Ambleside and 30 mins back along the tarmac lane - 20% gradient in places. High Grove, its cleanliness, decor, linen, and facilities are beyond reproach. Peaceful with stunning views in all directions and access to Wansfell across open moorland at the back I rate this as the best Lakeland self catering accommodation we have rented in 40yrs.Sarah the housekeeper gave us a warm welcome, the army of cleaners had the cottage ready early and in immaculate condition. Think we might go back again.

“What a place and what a view!”

Reviewed 24 May 2014

This was our first proper holiday with our one year old boy Edward and we had a super time. High Grove was fitted with stair gates, a high chair and suitable cot so it was home from home. The barn conversion is superbly finished and the views over the valley stunning. We will be visiting again perhaps with family and friends, so may try the farmhouse next. Can't wait!

“Perfect”

Reviewed 3 May 2014

We have just spent a week at high grove. The setting is exceptional, beautiful views and sheep everywhere. The cottage itself is just gorgeous! Very well equipped for self catering and such sweet personal touches of fresh flowers and biscuits on arrival. The living room being upstairs works so well as the views can be taken in while eating dinner and reading. The cottage is around 1.5 miles from Ambleside. The return journey is a bit of a work out being uphill but it is so worth it for the outstanding, beautiful views. We loved Ambleside and particularly enjoyed the gingerbread latte and hot cross buns at the "Apple pie" Our recommendations for the week, 1) Easdale Tarn- get some gingerbread from the lovely shop by the church at the start of the trek up to the tarn 2) visit hawkshead for a leisurely stroll around the shops and to soak up the tranquil atmosphere of this lovely village. 3) the drunken duck is such a gorgeous pub with amazing views and lovely food! We are sad to leave the most gorgeous cottage we have ever stayed in and the surrounding beauty of Ambleside and the Lake District. We would highly recommend high grove and hope to return next year.

“Very good!!!”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

Great location, fine views, cottage near perfect. Very quite, calm with direct access to walks. Would certainly consider to go back. Can't say anything negative really. Minor detail: when we arrived Sat afternoon, we couldn't get the sattelite TV working and tried to contact the manager (also left a message) but nothing happened. Finally we got it going after a while.

“This place really ticked all the boxes”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2012

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.
