A wonderful winter break in a stunning location

5 of 5
When we first walked into Fir View the spaciousness of the lounge/kitchen/diner was the first thing that hit us. The beautiful view from the picture window across the valley was breathtaking. We quickly had the log fire up and running throwing out a huge amount of heat and sat drinking wine, absorbing that view. The kitchen area is extremely well equipped and served by 2 Neff identical ovens, supported by a Neff combination microwave oven. There is also a Neff coffee maker but we didn't make use of this. There is abundant refrigeration and an excellent supply of crockery, utensils and glasses etc too. The bedrooms all have high grade, comfortable beds with extremely warm duvets and 2 pillows per person. There is more than adequate storage for all your clothing. The family bathroom and en suites are fitted and decorated to an extremely high standard and boasting modern fittings. They are well lit and lovely and warm. The whole house is beautifully comfy and warm and it has an abundant supply of very hot water. The place was immaculately clean too. We didn't make use of the Langdale Hotel facilities sadly but it's just a short distance away. The local shop is also just a strole away too and Waniwrights just a few more steps further along the road. Hannah supplied torches for the dark walk at night should you wish to venture out in the evening. Being winter when we visited, we weren't able to make use of the outdoor facilities but I can well imagine having lovely barbecues, sat around the circular outdoor table in the rear garden. I have already verbally recommended this property to my family and friends and wouldn't hesitate to visit again in the future. It's a home from home.

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.
