A Very Cosy Cottage For A Mid-winter Break
By Keith P on 03-Feb-2019
This Holiday 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.

This was our first visit to the Lake District and we loved it! Hollens Farm Holiday Cottage was wonderful! Characterful and homely. Aga and wood burner made the Holiday Cottage warm and cozy after long walks. Holiday Cottage provided plenty of room and everything we needed. Everything within walking distance. We will definitely return!
Very Nice Old Cottage
By Stefan E on 09-Oct-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 that's a personal comment, not a complaint. We would 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 on 03-Oct-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 on 10-Jul-2018
Hollens Farm Holiday Cottage is a beautiful characterful place to stay. The master bedroom is gorgeous with stunning views over the Grasmere countryside. The Holiday Cottage is within easy walking distance of the village and lake and Wordsworth's Dove Holiday 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!

We stayed for a week at the Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday 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 Holiday Cottage year after year. After a day out on the Hill, or simply having a lazy day, the Holiday Cottage provides everything one could need. Its a really special place, and we love it.
By John on 28-Oct-2015
We recently stayed (family of 3) at the Holiday 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 Holiday 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.
