About Jean and John Burden
Jean’s mum grew up in the Lake District, in Little Langdale and Hartsop, a hamlet near Patterdale. She has always felt more at home in the Lakes than anywhere else, and it didn’t take her husband, John, long to feel the same way. With their four children, the family have enjoyed many happy holidays here. We love Grange Fell Cottage and Borrowdale, and we hope that you do too!
Jean and John Burden purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Jean and John Burden chose Borrowdale
Borrowdale is spectacular in many ways. Walking, at both low and high level, is superb in any direction, and the views stunning wherever you look. Hamlets nestling in the valleys, or mountain scenery. Derwentwater, offering cruises or water activities, is within easy reach. What we love about this property is that we do not need to use the car, if we want to get away from it all. The bus stops close by, and together with the lake offers transportation to Keswick and Honister or Buttermere.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we look for a holiday cottage, we want to find somewhere comfortable and happy - a home from home that we are content to spend lots of time in, especially when the weather can be unpredictable. This cottage ticks all the boxes: the cosy wood burner for those cold, wet evenings, the patio set within the enclosed front garden to sit outside and enjoy the views on those warm, sunny evenings, WiFi, and stunning views from every window. Most of all, what we love about Grange Fell Cottage is that is light and airy; it is truly a delight to spend time there, whatever the weather!

We have just returned from the Lake District. This cottage was cosy, clean and conveniently located with beautiful scenery and walks right from the door, as well as the highlights of the region an easy drive away. Would not hesitate to recommend if you are visiting the Lake District.
Lovely welcoming house in a beautiful spot.
We loved our stay in this snug cottage. Everything was very clean and welcoming. The kitchen is a good size and the wine was a lovely surprise. The area is beautiful with wonderful walks everywhere. Derwentwater is stunning. The teashop next door looked great although we never tried it. The area is very popular with walkers, particularly in the summer, with good reason. Although we had a few days of rain it didn't deter us. I hadn't realised on booking it was in a terrace in middle of hamlet and the teashop is directly opposite house but despite some crowds, it was very quiet at night. A few minor niggles: some pans are old so food burnt and,a few more adult games eg backgammon, chess would be nice. Otherwise it was very easy to use, wonderfully located, full of maps and walks, and a good place to get warm and dry. Nice woodburner and great rug for dog too. Everyone was happy.
Great place to hike by day and relax by night
My kids said this was their favorite place in England. From walking up to castle crag and cat bell to swimming in the lake and the river running under the old bridge. Memories made for sure for one of the warmest weeks in England. We packed for rain but were happy to enjoy this magical place in the summer like weather.
stayed in the lakes 6 times now,this was the best area,house very comfortable,
We are so pleased you found the cottage comfortable. We agree that the area is really beautiful; Grange is so pretty, and Borrowdale has both fantastic walking and the loveliest of hamlets (some with the most welcoming tea shops!).
great location very comfortable property
It was a lovely property for 6 adults to stays in. Lots of room, cosy lounge and enough space for all 6 of us to eat around the table. It was well equipped and the log burning fire was just lovely on the cold nights that we had (but no rain!!). The location was great for accessing foothpaths and walking to Derwentwater. We all enjoyed our time there very much and all have said would return with family etc. Definitely recommend.
We are really pleased you enjoyed our stay in our cottage. We have recently replaced the lounge furniture and are glad that you found that it provided ample space for six, but that it still felt cosy around the woodburner. Like you, we also find that Grange is a lovely location for walks around Derwentwater, Borrowdale and the pretty Newlands Valley. We hope you return soon with your respective families.
Clean property well set out
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and found it everything you wanted it to be.
