    “We really enjoyed our holiday in our favourite place, Grasmere.”

    Helvellyn is a lovely apartment and we would like to stay there again. When we arrived we met the owners who apologised and asked if we could return to the apartment after about 30 minutes as they were cleaning it. This was no problem. We did not inspect the apartment to see if it was clean, as we expected it to be so. ...

    Helvellyn is a lovely apartment and we would like to stay there again. When we arrived we met the owners who apologised and asked if we could return to the apartment after about 30 minutes as they were cleaning it. This was no problem. We did not inspect the apartment to see if it was clean, as we expected it to be so. We did some washing on the Wednesday and put some clothes on the radiators, when these were dry and taken off, we noticed dust and cobwebs on the clothing. On further inspection of the apartment we saw thick layers of dust on light fittings, skirting boards, picture frames,sockets, wadrobe and all the radiators. We did not let this spoil our holiday and we would like to return to Helvellyn later on in the year, if possible, we just hope it,s rather cleaner next time.

The property

Helvellyn is a delightful apartment on the first floor of Beck Allans, an imposing stone-built residence, dating back to 1850, set in its own grounds in a quiet position in the centre of Grasmere. The apartment is one of four in the building and is an ideal base for a couple wanting to explore the Lake District as well as having all the village amenities on the doorstep. Grasmere is one of the most popular villages in The Lake District and has something for everyone, with an excellent selection of low and high level walks from the door, boating and fishing on the lake and interesting shops and eateries including the famous Grasmere Gingerbread. Accommodation: Entrance into communal area with flight of stairs up to Helvellyn. Enter the apartment into the cosy lounge/kitchen/dining area with large TV with Freeview, DVD, log burner and large window overlooking the garden. Double bedroom with bathroom off and down a couple of steps (bath with mains shower over, basin and wc). Gas central heating and hot water make the apartment cosy in all seasons. Outside: Beautiful shared gardens surround Beck Allans laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and garden seating. Allocated parking space for the apartments are situated in front of the house.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
