We stayed at Grove Corner during February half term. This was an ideal cottage, a real home from home. It is in such a great location, probably the best located cottage I've ever stayed in. The views are idyllic and it is so quiet and peaceful. Even though this is a collection of cottages you feel completely secluded, definitely can't hear the other cottages at all.
It is around a 30 minute walk from Ambleside (easy road walking) which is ideal because parking can be a bit busy. They do give you a parking disc too if you don't want to walk. There are so many walks around the Lakes so this is a perfect base, there are also walks straight out of the door including Stock Ghyll Force (a waterfall) and any walk that starts in Ambleside can easily be started from your doorstep.
The cottage is really well equipped with plenty of cooking equipment (all pans and crockery plus good extras like dishes for pies and a cafetiere). All the facilities are excellent - very comfy bed/sofa and great shower.
I will definitely return, hopefully next time for two weeks. There is so much to do in the Lakes and Grove Cottages are the perfect place to stay. More
