The home was lovely, location fantastic, there were a few issues but the owner was around when we arrived to explain the problems that they had experienced and it did not cause us any major problems- we very much enjoyed our stay.

Very nice, everything in order, just could you please inform prospective guests that there will not be towels available, I know many people might know this but for first timers it can prove a little problems, having said that if anyone is ever stuck in that situation, the pharmacy which is 2 minutes walk have towels, or you might be interested in travel towels sold in hiking/camping shops.

“Fantastic family long weekend break”
From the moment we entered Bakers Rest we all felt at home. Well furnished and comfy this is in a great spot for walks straight from the front door. We would love to stay here again. We were a 3 generation family group .

“Great location, clean, well presented, spacious - Loved it!!!”
Thank you for a truly great week. We really, really enjoyed staying in your holiday rental home. Things we liked: Great spacious home, quality of furnishings, cleanliness, information in the home of the local sites, views & village location was excellent - quiet but with fantastic restaurants literally 'on the doorstep'. Visit 'Potted Out','The Jumble Room','Tweedies Bar' & 'Sara's Bistro' all within 200 yards of the house & all fantastic selection & presentation of lunch & dinner treats! If I were to give any small details of advice to improve the home I would offer the following suggestions. Please note these are offered for 'perfecting' an already truly great place. 1. Improve the details on the directions as many will be arriving in the dark on a Friday evening after work so more accurate details would reduced the stress of finding the place - the car park name was wrong it's called 'Red Bank' and the garden centre is named 'Garden Village'. 2. I felt these basics would have been a good touch - sugar, tea bags, bin bags, foil, guest soaps, as we had to buy all these the following day after arrival. Other places we have stayed have these basics as standard. 3. We all found the quilts way to thick for the summer months. 4. Bulb in entrance hall not working and no spare in house very dark when arrived and we couldn't see where the steps were. 5. The door latches on the twin room in the loft and also it's bathroom were not working so limited privacy in that room. Other ideas to improve the guests experience 1. Either maps to borrow of walks from the house or a wall map in the house showing possible walks from the village. 2. A couple of tupperwares in the kitchen to use for a picnic would have been the icing on the cake! Just an idea!!! Ps Thanks for the two yorkshire puddings in the oven!!! Joking aside - this was one of the best places we have stayed in and would definitely go back again and again - if they would allow us after this!!!

“Perfect central location for exploring the area”
We greatly enjoyed Bakers Rest and its location in the centre of Grasmere was fabulous for our visit. It makes a perfect central location for lots of walks and exploring without always having to use the car. Ambleside and Windermere are just a short drive away. Bakers rest is a comfortable holiday home for 8 people, is spacious and comfortably furnished, and we greatly enjoyed our stay. As for small improvements to enhance future stays: Towels please - the last thing you want to have to think about when packing for a stay away (you can tell, we forgot!) A small welcome pack/pint of milk in the fridge would be lovely PS. I do think the brochure ought to mention the very steep stairs to the upper floor, if you have less able members of the party. It puts 2 rooms out of bounds to some... But minor points, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would stay again.
It is very nice cottage we like, we were enjoyed very much. Thanks!
“Total comfort in a peaceful setting!”
An excellent place to stay in central Grasmere close to the beautiful destination in the Lakes. Bakers Rest is comfortable and very well equipped. Grasmere is a quiet place with numerous coffee houses and places to eat. The Sunday Lunch @ Tweedies (next door but one to Bakers Rest) is a must! The apple Pie in ambleside makes the most amazing Bath Buns! A must! The Grasmere Gingerbread is to die for and only a 2 minute walk from Bakers Rest! :o) We all had a fabulous stay and will be back for sure. xx
“Brilliant Bakers Rest”
My family really enjoyed our recent stay in Grasmere.This was mainly due to the brilliant cottage Bakers Rest.It was spacious,spotlessly clean,beautifully furnished and so well placed for pubs,places to eat and really nice shops.Grasmere was a great base for the rest of Cumbria.We will definately book this cottage again,probably early next year,and would strongly recommend Bakers Rest for a great holiday.
“Luxury for 8 in centre of Grasmere”
This is a very comfortable property with many luxury features in a convenient village location ideal for both those walking the fells or just pottering around Grasmere. We have stayed here several times and look forward to staying again.
We have stayed here twice before and invited friends to join us as we know the area and the apartment is great. I was a little disappointed and surprised to see that a tap was broken in the upstairs double en-suite. Our friends agreed that it is the perfect size, well equipped and located holiday house but as the house sleeps 8, we also agreed that 2 car parking vouchers should be provided. The variation of walks from the apartment is excellent, there is plenty of room for 2 families with children and the decor is very relaxing and well suited to the building. We will definately stay again. Elsewhere we always rent a house, but we really like this let.
