Cottage in Grasmere, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Set In Heart Of Grasmere Village With Its Many Cafes And Shops Surrounded By Mountains.
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.

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.
Cosy cottage in a great location
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.
Spotlessly clean, with everything you need for a perfect holiday! Park your car on arrival and don't get in it again until you leave. Walks from your door, with all the facilities in Grasmere you might need. Use of hotel pool a massive asset which the owners should make more of in their advert! We didn't realise what a treat it was after a days walking. As we also had miraculously brilliant hot sunny weather, drinks on the small patio in the evening before dinner..... Owners very helpful, but unobtrusive, just nice and friendly! Highly recommended to friends! Buses every few minutes to lots of other bits of Lakes if you want to explore.
