About Martin Wood
I went to the village school in Grasmere as have all my children we have been letting cottages in Grasmere for 20 years many of our guests are now friends returning year after year. We live in the village near the cottage and have a small outdoor shop in the village so are always on hand to offer any help or information you may need about the area. The cottage is cleaned and maintained by myself and my wife Diane.
Why Martin Wood chose Grasmere
Grasmere is beautiful unspoilt village in the heart of the Lake district. Bakery cottage has all the benefits of a modern cottage but with all the charm of a tradition cottage with the benefit of car parking a rarity in village centre.The cottage is cleaned and maintained by the owners who have a shop near to the cottage if you should have any questions about the area or walks.

Cosy and clean cottage in the centre of Grasmere
Ideal accommodation for two people, would stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at The Old Bakery, it is in a great location and the plus of having a pool, sauna and jacuzzi at the end of a long days walk was great. I had a brief chat with the owner about the musty smell but to be fair, the property is old, and a couple of scented candles sorted it out. Overall, a great week away. Kieron
Excellent, just as advertised. Just one small beef, access to car park was via adjacent cottage yard. Fortunately no one was staying there but it may have been a bit embarrasing if they were.
I am glad Mr Smith enjoyed his stay at Bakery cottage.He is correct that if you use the rear door of the cottage you go though the rear yard of next door Chapel cottage which we also own and let. If you do not want to use the rear door you can use the front door which opens onto the street
Perfect location, warm and cosy cottage.
We stayed for 3 nights in January. This warm and cosy cottage with all the amenities needed for self catering was just perfect in the evenings after a days walking. The location couldn’t be better with plenty of walks starting from the doorstep. Martin was so helpful when we asked for help after accidentally turning off the fire. It may just be due to sleeping away from home but I think a mattress topper would have made this stay even better than it was already. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
A fantastic cottage with all that is needed for a great stay.
We spent 3 nights at this wonderful cottage in mid November arriving on a cold and wet day to find the fire lit and the heating on to make the place snug and welcoming.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here using it as a base to explore. Whilst the cottage appears small, there is ample room for a couple. The place was immaculate and you can see that the owners take pride in their property.
I would highly recommend staying here.
Felt instantly at home and would definitely stay again if in the area.
