Just 6 weeks still available in our Holiday cottage until November

Our Lakes Holiday Cottage, Brockstone is nearly fully booked from now until November.

Our Grasmere holiday cottage has amazing views, is perfectly located for walkers, and has all the facilities you need for a great Lakes holiday. It's not just me that says that ( I would, wouldn't I?). You can read our reviews on Trip Advisor Here . If you discount the odd nutty review ( you can't please everybody all of the time, obviously) you'll see that our holiday cottage is very popular. Could it be perfect for you?

We can offer the week commencing 31 May, and the week commencing 7 June, at the special reduced last minute rate of £590 per week. If you could stay for two weeks, we would offer a two week stay for only £1080. What a bargain!

The next weeks we have are the weeks commencing 19 July and 26 July. We have reduced these school holiday weeks from £870 to £750 per week. If you want to book the two weeks, we can offer that for £1,400. We think this is a great rate for high season.

After that we have the week commencing 13 September for £750, and the week commencing 18 October for £750.

That's all we have until November. If you would like to take advantage of any of these offers, we'd love to hear from you.


Here's a photo I took on Saturday, looking out of the twin bedroom window at Brockstone. You can see Wetherlam , Coniston on the horizon to the left, and Sergeant Man, Grasmere on the right. The wire you can see again the background of the fields full of May blossom is bringing your free unlimited broadband to you at Brockstone cottage.

Last minute reduction for a week from 17 May in our Lake District Cottage

Brockstone Cottage is available from 17 to 24 May, and we have reduced the rate to just £550 for the week.

We've just checked the weather forecast and it's looking pretty good. The Lakes are looking amazing. My brother, who is a horticulturalist says it's a "mast year" when all the elements combine to give greater abundance than usual. This explains the amazing number and colour of bluebells, and the wonderful blossom and flowers on the camellias, magnolia, azaleas and rhododendrons.

If you can take advantage of our last minute special offer you'll see the Lakes at their colourful best.

Here's a photo I took last week in Rydal Village, just a beautiful short walk from Brockstone Grasmere holiday cottage.

Our Lakes Holiday Cottage has another great review.

The guests who left Brockstone Cottage on Saturday have posted a very nice review on Trip Advisor. You can see the reviews of our Grasmere Cottage here 

The Lakes are looking fabulous at the moment. The bluebells are still blooming, and the azaleas and rhododendrons are just amazing. In fact everything looks even better than usual this spring. The conditions over the last year have led to outstanding blossoms and the trees with their fresh leaves are stunning. For some lovely pics that I took at this time last year, please take a look at our new work in progress Brockstone website. I'll be out and about with my camera in the next few days updating my picture library. What a year!

We've just been updating our availability and rates on the Holiday Lettings and Home Away websites where we post all the details for our Grasmere Holiday Cottage. We've reduced rates for the weeks that we still have available in May, June and July, so if you are thinking of visiting the Lakes, and want to try our cottage (it has amazing views) now would be a good time to come. Take advantage of our last minute offers.

We've also updated the rates and availability as far as March 2015 if you would like to book further ahead.

I always like to have a picture on my blog, so here are two I took a few days ago on the circular walk round Rydal Water, which passes by Brockstone Cottage. One is of Rydal Hall gardens, and one it taken in Rydal Village.

The fabulous Rydal Hall gardens- a great stop on a walk round Rydal Water from Brockstone Cottage.
