About Sue Dixon

We have lived at White Moss House , 10 minutes walk away from the cottage, for over 30 years. White Moss House was a highly rated small hotel and restaurant, with top entries in the Good Food Guide for many years, before we retired. We used Brockstone Cottage as an extra hotel room- it was very popular.

In recent years we have taken it more easy, so White Moss now is our home, and we rent Brockstone Cottage, Grasmere as a wonderful place to spend your Lake District holiday.

We are nearby should you need any help, but respect your privacy throughout your stay. Usually we just see guests when they collect the keys and drop them off, but we are very happy to advise on walks, activities, tips, where to go- anything to make your stay at Brockstone Cottage as perfect as possible.

Sue Dixon purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Sue Dixon chose Grasmere

If you've seen the views, you'll know why this is such a wonderful place to stay. Sitting on the terrace, watching the changing weather over towards Wetherlam or Rydal Water is just fabulous.

Many places in the Lake District are tucked away down the valleys, and in the villages, where very little sun reaches. Brockstone Cottage is high enough to get all the sun available. This special cottage has a large terrace, with dining table and chairs for eating outside at lunchtime or on a long summer's evening. The cottage is surrounded by a wild garden, with a stream running under the house.

Inside there are all the modern facilities you need for a comfortable holiday in the Lakes.

What makes this cottage unique

There is no passing traffic. Only deer, sheep, red squirrels and walkers pass by. At the end of a hard day's walking ( you can start at the door) soak tired limbs in a spa bath. Heaven!

From the door of the cottage you can set out on walks and hikes in all directions. Some guests never use their car at all, apart from the odd trip to the shops.

If you do want to explore further afield, the location of Brockstone Cottage is very central .

Guestbook comments from the owner

A delightful cottage run by helpful and friendly owners, who also own the outstanding,nearby, White Moss House. The cottage is extremely well set up, with a washing machine and dryer -excellent for wet walking clothes after a day on the fells- and a dishwasher, plenty of kitchen utensils, cutlery and crockery, and a wonderful open-fireplace with ample supplies of wood. The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms have excellent power showers. Parking is easy with room for visitors. The views must rank among the best in the Lake District -stunning vistas of the fells. We have already booked to go back in 2014

So near the silvery water yet so close to the sky

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this cottage - in the heart of the lakes and yet tranquil and isolated, somewhere to watch the wonderful lakes and mountains, walk up to the crags and run down to two lovely lakes/meres/waters to paddle and swim in glorious surroundings. The occasional call of a falcon wheeling around the high crags above the woods - where we could pick chanterelle mushrooms, blackberries, raspberries and later in the year there will be ripe hazelnuts in the woods. Very clean and comfortable; cosy fire, friendly and helpful owners. Feels isolated but not lonely as occasional walkers out of sight below on the footpath. Great fireplace and useful internet access. Thank you!

A wonderful cottage with incredible views

  • 5 out of 5
As we drove down the narrow track to the cottage we were getting excited, then as we parked outside, got out of the car and took a look at the view we were so happy that we had found this holiday cottage.
No traffic goes past Brockstone, which is the last house on the ancient "coffin road" between Rydal and Grasmere. For walkers like us, it was heaven to put our boots on and step right out onto wonderful hikes up Fairfield, Loughrigg, Silver Howe and many more shorter walks direct from the door. Grasmere is a 30 minute walk away.
The view is wonderful, and the terrace catches all the sun going- perfect for a glass of local beer at the end of the day before soaking in the spa bath then curling up by the log fire.
The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. We loved it, and can't wait to return.
The owners were very helpful, and we would certainly recommend this cottage.

nasty carpet in bathroom, moths come out at night in the bedrooms, son had an asthma attack on our first night, smell of mildew permeates throughout cottage, 2nd bathroom is a 75 cm wide joke. front porch awning is falling off the wall. scratched car driving up the narrow gravel path. less time should be spent writing about views outside and more time should be spent cleaning the dust and spider webs on the inside. confronting owner with our concerns got zero response.

Owner's Response: The guests who left on the day this reviewer arrived have already booked two more visits. They are as mystified as us by this review. You will almost certainly see moths and spiders , as well as butterflies, deer, badgers, red squirrels and abundant birdlife. That’s all part of the rich eco system in Lakeland.
The main bathroom has a relaxing spa bath and power shower. Unusually for a 200 year old Lakeland Cottage we have also managed to fit an extra ensuite shower room in the four poster bedroom. Other guests have appreciated this extra facility.
I have read out the comment about the porch to various regular guests to see if they could understand it. No one knows what the reviewer means. The porch is a traditional Lakeland porch, dating from when the cottage was built over 200 years ago. Its style is typical of the vernacular Lake District architecture. Is the reviewer suggesting we should knock it down and replace it with some modern edifice, which would be totally out of character and against our strict planning regulations?
We would love to have had the chance to discuss the reviewers “concerns” face to face, but far from “confronting” us they handed us a note of their complaints as they were leaving, giving us no opportunity address their points.
Obviously the cottage did not suit these guests. We’re sorry that they did not enjoy their visit.

A lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the cottage for 8 days in December and loved it. The cottage is in a great location that feels remote (although you could walk to Grasmere pubs/restaurants in 15 minutes). We were a couple and were very comfortable in it although it could fit four people. The highlights of the cottage are its convenient location (so close to lots of the great hills in the Central Lakes), its cosy fire, its whirlpool bath, the passes to the Langdale pool that Sue and Peter lent us and the fantastic views over Loughrigg Fell and Rydal Water.

Sue and Peter were also very friendly and helpful when we needed them.

We had a great time here and would highly recommend it.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just spent an idyllic week in the beautiful Brockstone Cottage. The house has breathtaking views across to Rydal Water and is set in a stunning, secluded setting away from prying eyes (apart from the odd intrepid walker passing by on the "Coffin Route" path just below the cottage). Even so, the house feels very "private" and we were able to enjoy sunning ourselves on the patio when the sun came out.

The house itself has everything you could possibly need for a weekend, a week or longer - leaving you with the feeling that you've been staying somewhere truly luxurious - two ample-sized bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities and a magnificent 4-poster bed, a spacious kitchen/dining area with all mod cons (including dishwasher, washing machine etc) and a large but cozy lounge with TV, sound system and all the books and games you need to keep yourself occupied should the weather conspire against you.

This is a walker's paradise - you could stay here for weeks and not do the same walk twice. Ideally located just a 15/20-minute walk from Grasmere (enough to work up a thirst and an appetite for a pub dinner) or a slightly longer walk to Ambleside through some stunning scenery - you really do feel you're in heaven, even when it's pouring with rain.

We loved it and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

A real Gem in the Lakes

  • 5 out of 5
My spouse and I had a week at Brockstone, and were very sad to leave. This is a superbly equipped cottage with an incomparable view. Two comfortable bedrooms, one twin bedded with a washbasin and tons of storage and wardrobe space, and one a four-poster with washbasin, toilet and shower. The main bathroom is modern, has a great shower, a whirlpool tub and heated towel rails. The kitchen has top-line washer/dryer, dishwasher, glass-topped hob and efficient oven, and is an eat-in with style. The cottage is central-heated. Furniture is far above the standard self-catering norm. The living room has a top-rate TV, DVD and CD players. And the Terrace! We dined outside almost every meal when we were there.

You'll find that everything works (unusual in self-catering); it is immaculately clean; warm and cosy on the wet days (it is the Lake District!), and cool from cross-breezes when the heat rises.
The road/track up is initially a challenge for North American drivers, but after the first two or three trips in and out you'll take it like a rally champion. It's a walkers paradise, literally steps to major trails.

I wanted to put plenty of details in because Brockstone is unique. Self-catering sometimes means inconvenient, make-shift and worn. This cottage is a true beauty, a real five-star. We will return again and again.

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. This is the scenery that has inspired countless poets and authors, amongst them William Wordsworth, Coleridge, Ruskin, Turner and Constable. Our holiday cottage is located in the heart of this beautiful landscape.

Brockstone Cottage is on The 'Wordsworth Walk,W between his famous home Dove Cottage Grasmere, and the house he lived in during his later life, Rydal Mount. This walk is also known as the historic 'Coffin Path',as it was used in the days before St Mary's Church Rydal

was built as the most direct route to St Oswald's Grasmere

Adjacent to Rydal Mount is the historic Rydal Hall and the newly restored Rydal Hall Gardens. Holehird Gardens Windermere is a short drive. Beyond Rydal is Ambleside and Lake Windermere. Visit Bridge House Ambleside and Zeffirelli's cinema. From Brockstone Cottage you can see White Moss Common and Loughrigg Terrace where Rene Zellweger filmed Miss Potter. Beatrix Potter's house Hill Top Sawrey and John Ruskin's Brantwood Coniston, are a short drive. On Lake Coniston ride The Gondola steamboat and visit the Donald Campbell Museum. Boats can be hired on Grasmere, Windermere, Ullswater and Derwent Water. The Pencil Museum at Keswick, Derwent Water and the Theatre by the Lake Keswick are worth visiting. Grasmere Lake and Grasmere Village is 1 mile,with Wordsworth's grave and Sarah Nelson's Grasmere Gingerbread shop next to the ancient St. Oswald's church Grasmere

Notes:
This Grasmere cottage has a wild lakeland graden, and it is not suitable for unsupervised young children.The garden is on a hillside, and a stream runs through the garden . The cottage inside is not equipped with child safety features.We do not recommend the cottage for families with young children. There are quite steep stairs inside to the bedrooms, and outside steps to gain access from the drive to the terrace which make it unsuitable to guests with walking difficulties. Brockstone Cottage is on the Wordsworth Walk between Grasmere and Rydal. Access is on a tarmac road off the A591 from Wordsworth's Dove Cottage ,Grasmere or from White Moss House ,for half a mile, followed by a track for the last 300 yards. In extreme winter weather conditions it may not be possible to take a car all the way to cottage. The track after Brockstone becomes a walking path, leading to Rydal Village and on to Ambleside.In extreme winter weather iit might not be possible to reach the cottage by car.
