Incredibly fabulous time had by all over Christmas time. Amazing house - very homely, comfortable and well equipped. Lots of places to be together and apart! Going to miss the views and adventures around the garden. Such a great location - easy walking distance to Grasmere. recommend the Gingerbread shop, The Chocolate shop and Dove Cottage.
