Good place to stay

We thought Grasmere was a great location to base yourself in for the Lakes & were very happy with this cottage. We stayed there during Oct half term (2 adults, 2 children) and were very comfortable. It's well positioned in the village itself. The car parking at the back of the cottage is too narrow for most cars to get into, but they provided a parking permit for a nearby car park, so it was never a big problem. We didn't have any problems with noise from above. All in all a very happy stay. Read more

Beautiful comfortable cottage in a central location.

This was a late booking and the service was good. I know Grasmere so I knew that it was a very good central location.
The cottage was spacious with 2 large bathrooms and a large kitchen and separate drying room . It was very comfortable.
We did not take our car so am unable to comment on parking facilities. I have stayed in several apartments in Grasmere and this was certainly the best in terms of size,position and value for money. The only negative is that movement in the apartment above could be heard. Thankfully the people upstairs were quiet during our stay.
The only other negative does not concern the cottage but our journey home on the Saturday . We arrived at Windermere station to be told that our train had been cancelled. A station supervisor asked everyone to wait outside the station for replacement buses. When the bus driver came he said that he was running late and would not be taking anyone.
Faced with the option of a two hour wait with more people trying to fit on the station platform we decided to go back to Grasmere for the weekend and stayed at the Dale Lodge hotel which was also good. Read more
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at this property and that the service we provided was good.
We are sorry that you had issues on your return home and we hope that this did not detract too much from your enjoyment of the Lake District.
We hope that we can welcome you back to one of our properties in the future.

great cottage,had everything you could wish for,clean and tidy,well equiped and a great escape from the rat race even though it was located in a quaint village,near to all local amenaties,some great gentle walks not far from the doorstep.
One little problem we had which i am sure should no longer exist was that the back yard resembled a building sight with scaffolding etc all over the place as roofers were working on an building around the back,would have been nice to have been informed as sometimes we take our two young grandaughters and it wouldn't have been safe.
that said we really enjoyed our stay and will be looking to return in the future.

Lovely little cottage

Lovely little cottage in a quiet location in Grasmere. Nicely furnished and quite roomy. We really enjoyed out stay.
Couldn't park in the small parking space at the rear as our rental car wouldn't fit, but there was a parking permit provided for the nearby car park which was only a couple of minutes walk away.
Only thing we found dissapointing was that there were no towels provided, which would ordinarily make it very difficult for overseas visitors like us. Fortunately we were with our son who lives in the UK so didn't have to purchase towels. Other thing we fond a bit strange was the requerst to strip down the beds before leaving.

Fantastic location in heart of Grasmere Village. Very comfortable, high standard accommodation. We got a last minute deal which was a bargain for such luxury. Parking is tricky if you have anything bigger than a Peugot 107 but the parking permit was much appreciated and the car park a stones throw away!
In summary - Just perfect!
Beautiful cottage in great location

Old Bakers Cottage is based in a great part of the lake district - quiet and away from the main road, but also close to shops and restaurants. There are a number of great walks to go on right from the front door. The cottage itself was clean, tidy and well-equipped.
Good location, but a lot of noise from people upstairs
Left on 09/21/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Towers Family
The Cottage itself was nice and fairly clean. The holiday however was completely spoilt by very noisy people in Bakers Rest above the cottage due to inadequate noise barrier between the cottages, with no warning of noise transition this in the brochure.
If your looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday then Old Bakers Cottage probably isn't for you.

lovely location and great cottage. Had one terrible night when noises from upstairs (washing machine we think!) went on until 2am. Otherwise great.
