Our Grasmere holiday cottage gets a superb review.

Our Grasmere holiday cottage, Brockstone, has just been given a really superb review. Thank you very much kind guests! The review is posted on the HomeAway website, but here it is for you to read.

Beautiful cottage in stunning location

We have rented many cottages over the years, but have to say that this was the most special yet. The cottage itself, recently renovated, was perfect with all the facilities one could want: a very well equipped kitchen, lovely sitting room with wood burning stove; two very comfortable bedrooms; plenty of hot water and efficient heating (that we turned on for the one day when the not so warm English summer walk had left us feeling a bit chilly!).
Then there are the views: sitting on the terrace in front of the house looking over Loughrigg Fell and down to Rydal Water was truly inspiring. No wonder Wordsworth spent so much of his time here...
The location is great: turning right out of the cottage for a 15 minute walk into Grasmere; or left down to Rydal, and a quick few minutes straight down to White Moss. It did mean that we could leave the car behind on several occasions as we set out to explore, including lovely walks around Grasmere Lakeand Rydal Water, and up to Buckstones Jump for a (quick) dip.
The cottage's owners, Sue and Peter, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful with suggestions and tips for making the week all the more enjoyable. All in all, a quite wonderful week in an incredibly special spot "
Excellent! Thank you!
Following on from the last blog "who reads my blog", I was amazaed to see than on one day this week this humble blog had received 3,762 views. Inexplicable to me- something must have sparked this off. Or maybe Blogger's stats are wrong. Hey ho, all good fun
Here are another couple of pictures from our Grasmere holiday cottage . The first available date that you could stay here is now 8 October 2016.
