                            Beautiful cottage, stunning view of Langdale peaks

                            5 of 5
                            I booked this cottage for 11 people as a surprise weekend for my partner with all her friends and was very impressed. The house provided a perfect location for sociable weekend away with all our friends - the big open plan Kitchen/Diner/Living area was very spacious and was ideal for playing games and hosting a big group roast dinner around the authentic wooden dining table. Also, the kitchen was very well thought out and had the essential utensils needed to cook meals for 11 people (2 oven / grills was very handy indeed). Furthermore, the balcony leading out from the living area is a perfect space for enjoying a cuppa in the morning overlooking the stunning view down the valley. Would love to visit the cottage in the summer where late evening drinks could be enjoyed in this area! The bedrooms were absolutely stunning! Each one was uniquely decorated with a different theme in each. 4/5 bedrooms had amazing en-suites (better than a 5* hotel) with the 5th bedroom being directly opposite a beautiful bathroom with a roll top bath (Nice after long walk on the fells). The location was ideal, only 5 minute walk in to the village where there is a very well stocked convenience store. 15 minute walk and your in the beautiful village of Elterwater where you will find one of my favorite pubs the Britannia Inn. If you enjoy a more challenging walk there are some really nice hikes over the ridge in to the attractive village of Grasmere (1-2 hours) which are rewarded with some wonderful views at the top of the peaks. Overall, everyone who stayed at the cottage thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Fir Garth and we will all be booking again next year. For large groups of friends or family I would highly recommend this cottage for a fun and enjoyable stay in the Lakes.

                            very convenient

                            5 of 5
                            We needed a property that was centrally placed for a few days easy walking and this fitted the bill. The best walk was accessed straight from the door with a picturesque route around Loughrigg tarn and up to the peak where for just a little effort you get a 360 degree view of the Lake District. Another circular walk from the door took us to Colwith Force and on to Ellterwater with the pretty Britannia Inn. A short 3 mile drive over Red Bank takes you to all the walks that Grasmere has to offer. The flat was a joy to return to in chilly weather as it was always cosily warm with loads of hot water and an enormous bath to relax in. The living/dining/kitchen area is compact but comfortable and very well equipped. The only negative was the poor wifi reception that seemed to come and go and the weak mobile phone signal, though our friends with i pads managed very well.
