                                                                                                      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.
