    We thought the kitchen was poorly equipped and it was lucky I had thought to bring two roasting tins as we had to use these several times. There was a shortage of large saucepans and bowls for food preparation. The gas hobb didn't work very well. Also the following:- -A new mop head was needed -towel rail in master ensuite on second floor needed fixing -hole in the bath in family bathroom -problems with the washing machine. Didn't work very well and didn't always spin clothes and unfortunately we needed to use this a lot as we were there the week of the torrential rain and floods. In all the self catering properties we have stayed in recently there has been washing up liquid and a reasonable amount of dishwasher tablets left but the complimentary pack left was ridiculous.

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family have been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
