We stayed in Hollens Farm Cottage in May 2021 and had a wonderful time. The cottage has so much character and is very homely with all the comforts required. The location is spot on in the middle of the Lake District but with absolutely loads on your doorstep and a lovely five minute walk to the centre of Grasmere, which has wonderful restaurants and pubs (which I recommend you book well in advance in these current times) as well as shops and galleries.We were surrounded by the most beautiful countryside and did some wonderful walks from our front door (Stone Arthur, Silver How, Helm Crag as well as gentle walks around Grasmere and Rydal Lakes). I cannot recommend this cottage enough and we will certainly be returning as soon as we can!

Very clean and well appointed little cottage. Feels very snug in the evenings and has a very traditional Lakeland feel. Beautifully maintained. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We had a wonderful week at the cottage. The weather that week was excellent which makes the Lakes even better.

It was a new experience cooking on the Rayburn but we mastered it in the end.

We would thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting a convenient base near Grasmere and look forward to staying again in the future.

This was our second visit to the cottage. Im pleased to say that we enjoyed it just as much.The cottage is very comfortable and the location close to Grasmere is so good. We did some walks from the cottage (Helm Crag) and drove to others (eg Buttermere). We ate at The Yan (up the road) and had a delivery to the cottage from the Jumble Rom and finished the week with fish and chips by Windermere.

Unfortunately we couldn't fully appreciate the area as Coronavirus closed the area. But the cottage was in a great location and had everything there for a pleasant stay.

We had a lovely stay at Hollens Farm Cottage. The cottage is situated in a great spot a very short walk from Grasmere village. Very cosy and clean kitchen and living room downstairs and good sized bedrooms. It was great to stay somewhere that felt very "Lake District" but everything was modern enough to make it a comfortable stay to! Would definitely go back.

Great Place

By A.D

Many thanks Clare, the place was perfect. Plenty of room and the aga and wood burner were a real treat for a few warm cosy evenings. Would highly recommend this place. Grasmere is a great base for exploring the Lakes and the village has all you need while at the same time being close to the main attractions of the Lakes. Excellent. Will definitely stay here again when we return to the Lakes.

A very cosy cottage for a mid-winter break

By Keith P

Stayed February 2019


This cottage is well-equipped, and for a winter break it is ideal, in that it is very well insulated with double-glazing in new sash-windows, thick walls, and some sort of heating under the bathroom floor. It stayed warm all day with the thermostat turned down, while we were out, and was perfectly pleasant when we returned. Also, the situation is excellent, with a pleasant five-minute walk into Grasmere village.

Absolutely wonderful !

By Bob H

Stayed November 2018


This was our first visit to the Lake District and we loved it! Hollens Farm Cottage was wonderful! Characterful and homely. Aga and wood burner made the cottage warm and cozy after long walks. Cottage provided plenty of room and everything we needed. Everything within walking distance. We will definitely return!

Very nice old cottage

By Stefan

Stayed October 2018


Great location 10 mins walking distance to Grasmere village. Cosy and charming little cottage, well equipped. Bed was excellent. The Rayburn oven is a bit special, as it needs some pre-heating for both cooking and baking. But no problem at all. Good WiFi. We would have preferred a dishwasher instead of the washing machine in the kitchen, but thats a personal comment, not a complaint. We do recommend the cottage, but also Grasmere as a perfect base to explore the Lake District.

Lovely cottage, full of character and very comfortable

By Linda F

Stayed September 2018


We really enjoyed our stay, it was such a pleasure to return to after our long walks in the fells. The location is excellent, just a short walk into Grasmere village and plenty of good longer walks nearby. We didn't meet the owner but the instructions we were given were clear to follow. Would be keen to return to at some time in the future.

Lovely cosy cottage, excellent location

By Julie H 

Stayed July-2018


Hollens Farm Cottage is a beautiful characterful place to stay. The master bedroom is gorgeous with stunning views over the Grasmere countryside. The cottage is within easy walking distance of the village and lake and Wordsworth's Dove Cottage is literally just up the road. We did some excellent walks from the front door! We stayed in the heatwave of July 2018 so the ever-warm kitchen (due to the Rayburn) was not all that welcome but I imagine during normal English weather conditions coming home to a warm home would be delightful!

Perfect getaway

By Nard

We stayed for a week at the cottage and absolutely loved it - we went on many long hikes straight from the door. The size was perfect for 3 adults and everything was comfortable to use. We can't wait to come back again!

Perfect cottage



By Trish

Stayed Jan 2018


We stayed in this lovely cottage with beams and a wood burner in January. The location is perfect for the Grasmere area. There is a pleasant short walk through the fields and over the river to the centre of the village. The facilities in the cottage are very good and it is clean and cosy. We had not used an aga before but the instructions were easy to follow. It was ideal for our 3 year old granddaughter, as only a short drive to the Beatrix Potter Museum in Windermere.If you are looking for a traditional and quiet place to stay, this cottage is perfect.

Beautiful, Cozy, Traditional Lakeland Cottage In A Great Location!



By Lorna on 01-Nov-2017

We stayed here for a week in October 2017. The kitchen is warm and cosy and we enjoyed using the Aga, a great retreat at the end of long walking days. Everything about the cottage is top spec with loads of storage in the bedrooms. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a great view of Sour Milk Ghyll. The location is perfect and we did loads of walks from the cottage doorstep! Would highly recommend.

Fantastic Cottage
By LIZ on 26-Feb-2017

We had a fantastic week in Grasmere and this is a wonderful cottage. It was always warm and cosy as soon as you stepped into the front door and there was always plenty of hot water and I enjoyed drying the washing over the aga! It is a real charming cottage full of character and beautifully decorated, with everything that you could possibly need. It is also in a great quiet location with stunning views but only a few minutes walk from all of the restaurants in Grasmere. We have stayed in lots of cottages in the Lake District and this is one of the best! It was great that 'everything just worked' . A real gem of a place.

THE Place To Stay In The Lakes
By Martyn & Karen on 21-Sep-2016

Hollens Farm Cottage is as honest and traditional as you can find in The Lakes. Its combination of 'past and present' create the perfect Lakes retreat - something which is really hard to find nowadays. Claire and Mark work hard to maintain very high standards in the cottage, and that's the reason we continue to return to the cottage year after year. After a day out on the Hill, or simply having a lazy day, the cottage provides everything one could need. Its a really special place, and we love it.

Lovely Holiday



By John on 28-Oct-2015

We recently stayed (family of 3) at the cottage which was truly lovely. The location is perfect in the heart of the lakes. The property itself was tastefully decorated, cosy and clean throughout. We could not have hoped for a better place to stay and would certainly recommend to friends.

Quaint And Quiet



By Martyn & Karen on 06-Sep-2014


Our first stay here. Excellent location and very good communication with owners prior to, and during attendance. Lovely location just a short walk out of the village, just enough distance to make it feel like a proper holiday. Well appointed cottage with good parking facilities, log burner, decent size TV for those dark evenings, and Netflix so that we could watch a film in the evening. The Rayburn is the master of the house and cooking & hot water are its speciality, and we loved using it. All in all, a lovely place with all the natural historic charm one could wish for.
