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 bathroom equipped with a shower over the bath. 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 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 .
