Special Lake District Offers for Half Term Week.

It's not too late to get a bargain break in the Lake this half term. If you have a day or two free from now until 3 November, you could take advantage of our Autumn Special Offers.

The weather forecast is for sunshine and showers. It doesn't look like "the Big Storm" is going to reach the Lakes. You'll be able to get out for walks from the door, enjoying the wonderful colours on the trees. They are putting on a magnificent show right now. You'll then be able to relax by the fire in the Wordsworth lounge, maybe playing a game of Scrabble, or hammering out a tune on the grand piano.

Guests who left today thoroughly enjoyed their stay and said "we'll never forget your wonderful lounge and the fact that you serve Lapsang Souchong tea as an option at breakfast- no other place we've stayed can match that!"

We close for our winter break on 3 November, so please ring or email us asap to take advantage of our last minute offers. One night stays accepted any night this week, including Saturday.

Just a reminder that you can click through here to see our special last minute offers.. Here a picture of a walk that you could be doing.

Now is the time to book our Lake District Holiday Cottage for 2014

As you may know, we have a holiday cottage, Brockstone, which is perched on the "coffin route" aka "the Wordsworth walk", between Dove Cottage, Grasmere, and Wordsworth's favourite home, Rydal Mount. No traffic passes- just walkers, (and their dogs), deer, sheep , red squirrels.....

We have reduced the rates for the two week we still have available in October from £690 to £550, or you can take a 3 night break if you wish.You can check the special offer rates here.

November is almost fully booked, as is January and February. If you are planning a visit in 2014, please book as soon as you know your dates. We already have a record number of advance bookings for 2014.

Our Lakes Holiday Rental Cottage

The view towards the Langdales from our Grasmere holiday cottage ( you can also see Rydal Water if you swivel round)

The other day we sat on the terrace on changeover day, enjoying a cup of tea in the sun, watching a nut hatch on the nuts hanging from the hedge. Did you know nut hatches hang upside down to eat? I didn't, but they do. Looking at the view, we were reminded again of what an amazing location this is for a holiday cottage.  No wonder one recent reviewer (from Texas) wrote

 "A great location for vacation rental. It's located down a "road" which is also becomes the Coffin Trail walking path. Other than an occasional hiker on the path below, you will see no one. The views are stunning: the mountains and, to the left, Rydal Water. Every morning, I sat on the terrace and watch the mountains and clouds change. The location is unique and the views unparalleled. Moreover, you can listen to Brockstone's own waterfall from the terrace--it flowed continuously while we were there."
