Very tatty & tired. It is also quite dark inside as there are huge trees both in front & at the back of the apartment.. We had lights on all the time we were in. Upstairs shower room is very small and has quite a slope on one side so be warned as its easy to a bump your head! Location excellent, not overly noisy and brilliant to have the car parkinRead moreg space nearby. There is a bit of a trek to get luggage from the car, along behind the shops by the river and up a double flight of wooden steps. Hide

Quite a comfortable, quirky property, which could do with refurbishment, as it seems rather tired and tatty. However, it is ideally situated in Grasmere, so a great base for exploring the Lakes. We liked the balcony over the river, and even managed to eat breakfast there on two sunny mornings.

You would be hard pushed to find a better location to stay in the Lake District, let alone Grasmere. Off street parking space was great, and the apartment has everything we needed.

I am so glad I picked this property - perfect location and a perfect place. Truly lovely. Apart from adding more superlatives, there's not much more to add! If you are looking for a lovely spot in the central Lakes I would definitely recommend Riverside, Grasmere.

Position within the village was excellent being very central and at the same time being insulated from outside noise. The accommodation provided plenty of space and was reasonably comfortable, however the overall impression was that the interior was a little tired and in need of some TLC.

The highlight of this flat is the location. It is so central, and the fact it has parking is so useful when Grasmere is busy. The flat is more like a house and much bigger than expected.

There is basic comfort, facilities and fittings and could do with a refurbishment . Poor lighting for mirrors and readIng - except in kitchen area. Take your own shower gel etc. Best feature is location in centre of village.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
