Great reviews for our Lakes holiday cottage.

We had a delightful family from Holland staying at the cottage for the last two weeks. They arrived at the same time as ex hurricane Bertha, and the weather has been on the cool side and a little rainy for their stay-not like the glorious heatwave we had earlier.

Nevertheless, they said they had had a fantastic time, loved the cottage, and in fact the son had declared it his "best holiday ever!" Lovely!

The previous guests were also very kind, posting superb reviews . You can read their lyrical review here. They say that Brockstone Cottage is "the most wonderful cottage in the Lakes" Isn't that a lovely heading to read?

It's Grasmere Sports today- sunny and fine . Should be an entertaining day for visitors and locals.

We had a cancellation at our cottage for the week 20 - 27 September. The week was £750, but we've reduced it to £650 now if you are able to take up a last minute booking. There's already an autumnal nip in the air. September is such a beautiful month in the lakes. Plus, the crowds have thinned out, the children are back at school- perfect. Can you take advantage of our special offer?

Just one week available now in September in our Lakes Holiday Cottage.

The guests who left on Saturday have emailed to say how much they loved the cottage, and the guests from Holland who arrived on Saturday sent me a lovely photo of their family enjoying their first meal , outside on the terrace, with the caption "Sue- we are happily Settled!"

 All good!

 We've now let one of the two weeks we had available in September, so we just have 20 to 27 September and 18 to 25 October available before the clocks go back. From 1 November until the Christmas week the rate goes down to a very attractive £490 per week. It's a warm, cosy cottage with an open fire- perfect for a winter break.
Here's a rather arty photo that I took on Brockstone Cottage terrace one misty moisty morning in winter.

We've had a September cancellation- two weeks now available.

September is one of the most popular months in the year for visits to the Lakes amongst those who are not tied to school holidays.. There days are still long, the weather is often great, there is a hint of autumn in the air, and the masses of tourists who hit the lakes in August are long gone.

We have had a cancellation for the week commencing 20 September. The rate for this peak week is £750.
If you are lucky enough to be able to stay for 2 weeks, arriving Saturday 13 September, we are offering a great two week rate of just £1,250.
