Perfect location, warm and cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in January. This warm and cosy cottage with all the amenities needed for self catering was just perfect in the evenings after a days walking. The location couldn’t be better with plenty of walks starting from the doorstep. Martin was so helpful when we asked for help after accidentally turning off the fire. It may just be due to sleeping away from home but I think a mattress topper would have made this stay even better than it was already. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

A fantastic cottage with all that is needed for a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful cottage in mid November arriving on a cold and wet day to find the fire lit and the heating on to make the place snug and welcoming.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here using it as a base to explore. Whilst the cottage appears small, there is ample room for a couple. The place was immaculate and you can see that the owners take pride in their property.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Cosy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cosy, well maintained and well equipped, as described in the profile. However, the best thing about this cottage is its location. It is right in the centre of Grasmere, which is itself pretty much in the centre of the Lake District. There are plenty of walks in stunning mountain scenery that can be started right from the door of the cottage and other popular towns like Ambleside and Keswick are a short drive away. The cottage has its own off-road parking, and all the amenities in Grasmere, including a good selection of restaurants and cafes, are within walking distance. The owners were very friendly and helpful, popping in to say hello when we arrived but leaving us in peace after that. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the use of the local hotel swimming pool is a great benefit.

Spotlessly clean, with everything you need for a perfect holiday! Park your car on arrival and don't get in it again until you leave. Walks from your door, with all the facilities in Grasmere you might need. Use of hotel pool a massive asset which the owners should make more of in their advert! We didn't realise what a treat it was after a days walking. As we also had miraculously brilliant hot sunny weather, drinks on the small patio in the evening before dinner..... Owners very helpful, but unobtrusive, just nice and friendly! Highly recommended to friends! Buses every few minutes to lots of other bits of Lakes if you want to explore.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the most enjoyable holiday with everything living up to our expectations. Bakery Cottage was spotless with first class amenities. Ideally situated for walks and with plenty of places to eat just a stroll away and a regular bus service if you want to give the car a holiday. The owner Martin Wood was on hand for any queries and was really helpful and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend this property - a first class 'home from home 'and we will certainly be back
