What a gorgeous corner of the world! Faeryland is in a stunning part of Grassmere and is incredibly quaint and picturesque. It seems to be in it's own little bubble away from the crowds and nightmare parking of Grassmere itself. I love this place so...More

Please tell me why your prices are so high(compared to the rest of Grassmere) when there are signs everywhere stating that we have to bring our trays of empties back to the counter? Don't mind doing this in places but more insulting is the fact...More

Firstly, our prices are not high compared to the rest of Grasmere (Grasmere with one s, not two). Your tea pot for two was loose leaf of the highest quality, ethically sourced, fairly traded and frankly the best money can buy. We are designated as...More

A very disappointing visit to an idyllic location (although they are plentiful in the Lake District). Poor facilities, a narrow range of expensive snacks and drinks, extremely slow service and a stroppy and unhelpful manager. £20 an hour for a rowing boat is not cheap,...More

Our scones and cakes are superb - our choice of teas, coffees and soft drinks legendary. Our rowing boats priced in line with other boats on other meres in the Lake District. Opinions vary...

Guided by previous reviews, we foolishly discounted many other lovely refreshment options in Grasmere. We lived to regret this: a few hours of our precious holiday we'll not get back again! Yes, it's a really fantastic location BUT we were so, so disappointed by the...More

On a particularly busy day (which on the day of your visit it was...) we simply don't have the option of swapping over children in boats ad hoc. Another boat was available to enable all your party to enjoy boating at the same time but...More
