Location description from owner

The England region

The Cumbrian Lake District in the northwest of England is one of the most beautiful regions in the world and is made up of a series of lakes, mountain tarns and streams, and a mountain range that rises to a height of over 900 metres above sea level on nine summits.
The Lake District became famous after a group of British poets made it their home at the beginning of the 19th century. The most famous of these poets are William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey known collectively as the Lake Poets.

Detailed information & ideas for days out can be found on the Lake District Tourist & Cumbria Tourism Information Website: http://www.lake-district.org.uk (select, right click, copy & paste in web address). There is also plenty of literature at the cottage.

Penny Bridge

· The Perfect Location for a relaxing break in the Lakes.

· The Cumbria Coastal Path is about half a mile away, if Grizedale is too hilly for your biking then biking this path is easy and very flat. The Lake District National Park is less than 100 yards away, you can watch grazing cattle in the Park, on the opposite bank of the River Crake and on most days the entire range of the Old Man of Coniston, as you breakfast in the Conservatory.

· Activities - Walking, Mountain Biking, Sailing, Canoeing, Outdoor Photography, Activity Centres, Horse Riding, Climbing.

The Grizedale Forest Activity Centre is less than 9 miles away (around 15/20 minutes by car on quiet country roads). There are many mountain bike & walking routes, "Go Ape" aerial walkways & runways are also on site and there is a large outdoor children's playground.

Bigland Hall Equestrian Centre is less than 5 miles away in Backbarrow, a fantastic opportunity to see the area from a different perspective. See their website : www.biglandhall.com


Coniston Water and Windermere are both less than 5 miles by car.

· Ravenglass, Muncaster Castle & the Eskdale Narrow Gauge Railway are a brilliant day out for a young family, go via the coast road & return "over the top"

· Sightseeing - As well as Ambleside. Windermere & Coniston, Cartmel is well worth a visit for the Priory (for which Grange was the Grain store- via the sands) the racecourse and their famous Sticky Toffee pudding shop. There is plenty of literature & maps to help make your choices and to make sure you find them. See also website details above (Cumbria/Lake District)

“A magnificent cottage in a great location and ideal for families.”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our boys loved the garden. And what a superb location with hills and the ocean around the corner. We will definitely return.

Thank you Steve, we are very glad that you all enjoyed your stay. Jon & Sue Smith

“lovely cottage in a great location”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2016

We had a fantastic holiday at Mossy Lea Cottage. The location was fantastic with a shop a few minutes down the road which sold any essentials we had forgotten, although the cottage was brilliantly stocked with tea and coffee etc. The cottage itself was lovely with a good sized garden that we spent an afternoon and evening in with a bbq for dinner. Everything is very well presented and the views out the back of the cottage are lovely. Mossy Lea is also well stocked with games and playing cards which we found very useful! The owners were very helpful and always responsive to any questions or enquiries that we had. Overall a fantastic place to stay.

Dan, thank you for this kind review, our first on the site! Jon & Sue Smith
