Lovely cottage, full of character and very comfortable

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
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!
Stayed 17th Feb-2018
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!
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
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.

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
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.

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.
