This was our second stay this year at Tanner Croft. This is a very well appointed and comfortable cottage with its own parking (a real bonus in Grasmere). Coming back to a proper fire after a day walking cannot be beaten! The location is ideal. The village centre is a 1-2 min walk away, but with a field between this and the cottage, we never noticed the weekend groups. Grasmere itself is a good base for exploring the lakes with easy access to the north and south of the region. There are also plenty of good walks to be had from the doorstep, meaning the car has a holiday as well.
This cottage would be our first choice for when we come back to the Lakes. Read more

Anexcellent cottage that was very well equipped. The drying room was extrememly useful due to the weather during the week we had the cottage. Very cosy ,warm and comfortable. After a good days walking you could easily cook a meal or alternatively take a very short walk to a number of eating houses. Avoid the Red Lion for food ! Read more

Lovely cottage in a central but quiet location
Left on 10/30/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | Bill & Sonia
This cottage is full of genuine character and very well situated close to the centre of Grasmere village while away from the tourist hordes. Parking not as hard as it looks once you get used to it. Cottage generally very comfortable, but not much outside space and beds could be better. Service excellent from the seller, refunded us straight away when we paid twice by mistake! Grasmere can't be beaten for things to do, great views and loads of top quality walks straight from the cottage door, but - it is expensive, rammed with sightseeing tourists and really good 'real' pubs are a drive or long-ish walk away except for Tweedie's, but you need to be flush to eat there. Easy proximity to ambleside and Keswick and excellent public transport. Read more

Very pleasant cottage in a wonderful setting
Left on 07/24/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Adam Pavey
The cottage is situated on the edge of the wonderfully picturesque village of Grasmere which has a decent selection of walks from the doorstep and an good choice of shops and restaurants. Grasmere lake is only half a mile walk from the cottage and has footpaths that run along large parts of the edge. Easily one of the prettiest and best laid out lakeland villages we've stayed in.
The village has everything you'll need other than a hole-in-the-wall. There is an aTM inside the Post Office but that is often shut, so beware!
The cottage has two decent sized double bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a satisfactory sized living space. The bathroom is very large and features an above average sized bath which comfortably caters for 2 people.
The only criticisms I would have with the cottage are 1) The rather noisy boiler which is situated in a small room between the kitchen and the living room and 2) The fact that there is a slight feeling of being overlooked. The house next door is owned by the same family that own the cottage and they have sole access to the garden to which the rental cottage is positioned next to. Although the couple that live there are very friendly we felt a little unable to really relax at the start of our holiday as they were often walking across the front of the house to reach their front door. There is a small private area infront of the cottage but even that is considered 'fair game' by the family next door. At one point I was sitting on the sofa and found myself being stared at by the granddaughter of the owner who was positioned on the bench of the rental cottage. To my knowledge the child was not reprimanded.
These are only minor gripes as all in all it is a delightful cottage which I would definitely go back to. 8/10.

Great cottage which had everything you needed. The location was excellent as close to pubs / restaurants and could go walking straight from the cottage. Would definitely return!

This cottage is near the centre of Grasmere whilst being quietly located up a lane leading out of the village towards the hills. For us this was ideal being 5 minutes from the village ammenities whilst feeling like we were well and truely away from it all. The cottage is a fairly small/cosy building looking out onto fields and Grasmere village in the distance. Its well furnished and presented with most things you could want. The only appliance it was short of was a dishwasher - not an issue for us in anyway I have to say. The owner was friendly and helpful and we really couldn't fault the service we received. We had a lovely few days staying here and I wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again or recommend it to a friend.
Just about the best holiday cottage we've stayed in!

Having self-catered for the last 15 years, Tanner Croft in Grasmere rates as one of the best! Lovely and clean and a great mix of old and new with lots of character and love - everything we needed plus lots of literature/books etc. The location couldn't be better, central but on a quiet no-through road with parking. In front of the cottage was a field with sheep allowing views across to the hills with an area for sitting out (and drinks!) before walking just 200 yards or so to the village. The booking service (and directions etc) from Cottage Holiday Group was great, as was Sheila who was just a phone call away if needed in the village. There was no negative for me and my hubby, yes the shower lacked a bit of power which i've seen mentioned elsewhere but who really cares! This was our first actual stay in Grasmere with lots of new walks and eateries and we'll be back!

Been going to Grasmere for years but only in B&Bs; until now. Tanner croft was a great find lovely place just right for all those great things about our beloved lakes. Near to a huge amount of walking in the village Keswick an ambleside a stones throw a way. To get back after a great day out to a homely place and put the fire on was a cosy dream (brilliant) all you needed in the place to make you feel home from home, without a doubt will be making more visits.

We had a fantastic holiday, a visit from Sheila the owner exceeded our expectations, what a lovely lady. The cottage has everything you could possibly need including great storage, often a bug bear of mine, to hide all our 'stuff'. Sheila was a great source of local intelligence as she lives in the village, recommending places to eat and visit.
A pleasant cottage in a great location

Service was friendly and good.
The home was comfortable and pretty well equipped. Would have preferred a larger TV screen and ideally wi-fi. Main bed was comfortable, second bed average. Needed more drawers in the second bedroom. Location excellent for walking and for using facilities in the village.
