“Comfortable and convenient”
Everything went smoothly with the directions easy to follow and the house ready on arrival. The house was very good for our party of 7 adults, with all rooms being en-suite. The heating is efficient and the kitchen very well equipped. Possibly time the mattress on the downstairs double was renewed. The living room is very comfortable with a huge TV and we appreciated having wifi. The location is excellent for walking with lots of walks accessible without having to use the car. Dove Cottage and museum are handy if there is a rainy day.

“Top Grasmere cottage”
We are a group of people who make an annual visit to the Lake District, hiring cottages to stay and base our walks from. I can say without fear of contradiction from the rest of the group that this was the best cottage we have stayed in so far. Located just a few minutes walk from Grasmere it is ideally situated for forays into the heart of the Lakes. The cottage itself is beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout. It resembles a home as opposed to an occasional letting. All the bedrooms are en-suite and the living areas are spacious and comfortable. Although lacking an open real fire the property is well insulated and warm throughout the day due to the gas central heating system. The large kitchen is well equipped with a central dining table. There is parking for 2 vehicles and outdoor access if the weather permits. All in all a very pleasant stay and highly recommended.

Cottage was in a great location and easy to find. Cottage had all the mod cons and was well furnished. Cleaning standard was very poor In fact I don't think the master bathroom had been cleaned at all, on arrival I had to give it a wipe over as the sink and toilet covered in other peoples hair and dust. The furniture in the master bedroom was covered in dust with the top of the bed( clearly visible ) the worst. The carpets had not had a very good Hoover throughout the property. My 10 month old is crawling which showed up exactly how dirty the floors were! Felt quite let down as from the pictures it looks immaculate but it has been let down by the standard of cleaning. I feel that for the price this was not an acceptable standard to find the property in. The floor boards need serious attention especially in the lounge. It was impossible to sleep in the master bedroom with any movement in the lounge directly above. Would not use the cottage again.

“A truly comfortable stay.”
The web site describing the property was accurate and easy to follow. We did receive the details re directions and the key safe but, as these were not attached to the original confirmation, we had to make a 2nd request which was promtly dealt with. The house is well appointed in every way. There is plenty of crockery, cutlery, and cooking equipment. The shower facilities were very impressive. The beds were very comfortable with good pillows and linen. However it did seem a bit odd that no towels are provided. It was good to have the use of a washing machine but strange that there appeared to be no washing line!! We had wonderful weather every day,( how lucky were we )? Therefore, the availability of an umbrella over the table in the garden would have been welcome (I can quite understand that generally this is necessary, or indeed a requirement, just nice to have had available! The location of Hollens Farm house was excellent with easy access into Grasmere. The views from the house were lovely. The position of this property was much appreciated as this enabled us to undertake a variety of walks without driving. If we return to Grasmere, I think that we all would be very happy to stay here again.

“Excellent all round”
Booking was simple. Directions to the property were clear. The house was very comfortable and warm on a snowy weekend. It is spacious and having all bedrooms en-suite was great. It is within easy walking distance of Grasmere village and you could walk up the Langdales from the door. Don't assume basics will be found in the cupboards! Take everything you need.

“First class accomodation, warm welcoming and luxurious.”
We had a fabulous stay in Hollens Farmhouse, Grasmere, in December 2012. We were celebrating a friends 50th Birthday, the weather was kind to us, we had some amazing walks and fabulous accomodation to return to at the end of each day. The farmhouse was Wonderful, we liked it so much we wanted to make the most of it, so ate in every night and enjoyed lovely relaxing evenings in the gorgeous lounge. The soft furnishings and attention to detail throughout were Wonderful.

“Great base for lots of great experiences in the Lakes”
Very comfortable house for a large group. En suite facility across the four bedrooms is great. No hassle arrival and departure as keys kept in safe box so no need to pick up or return keys anywhere. Location excellent with superb views. Parking for 4 cars would be better, there is a part of garden that could accommodate this, dig it up and pebble it.
