12 excellent reviews. Wainwright, considered to be the expert on the Lake District fells, loved Borrowdale, and Grange is at its heart. Grange Fell Cottage, the end cottage of a row of three, flanks one side of the original village centre, with the green immediately outside the front door.

The cottage is comfortably furnished and well-equipped throughout, whilst the stunning views from every window of traditional Lakeland buildings - a church, a barn, a cottage - with the fells as backdrop, take your breath away. It is the perfect base for a walking or activity holiday, whether it be messing about on Derwent water, or challenging your stamina at one of the local activity centres. The Derwent River, a stone's throw from the cottage, is ideal for paddling.

The lounge has seating for six across two settees and a beanbag that is large enough to sink into. Snuggling up in front of the woodburner watching the TV/DVD, playing games, listening to music or reading a book is the perfect end to a day out on the fells. A selection of DVDs are provided, including the BBC TV series about Wainwright's walks, as well as music CDs. Plenty of books, including Julia Bradbury's book that accompanies the BBC series and other books about Wainwright, as well as Hugh Walpole's 'Rogue Herries' series, which are set around Borrowdale, are provided. Board games and puzzles are provided for those days when keeping warm and dry might be preferable to venturing out on the fells.

Fully equipped kitchen with seating for six around the solid wood table, high chair and booster also available. The cottage benefits from two bathrooms and a cloakroom. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, whilst the en suite to the master bedroom has a walk-in shower. Both the family bathroom and the en suite have heated towel rails. The double bed has a king size duvet, and blankets are provided to keep you warm on those colder nights. A hairdryer is also provided. Two further spacious bedrooms each have twin beds; one is a loft conversion and enjoys superlative views. Both twin bedrooms have two comfortable tub chairs so that you can enjoy a quiet chat or just sit and soak in the views. For young guests, a travel cot, potty, trainer seat, step-up stool and stair gate are provided.

The cottage has a porch at the front and back. Outside the front is an enclosed area within a traditional dry stone wall. Admiring the view as you enjoy breakfast around the patio table is the best way to soak up the sunshine in the peaceful beauty of the morning. The cottage has two parking spaces, and secure storage is provided for bikes.

WiFi connection means that the outside world need not be completely lost. Phone connection is possible in the cottage, depending on your provider. A landline phone is provided for incoming and emergency calls for your safety. An iron and ironing board is provided. Heating is by night storage heaters. Several oil filled radiators are also provided for when a little top-up might be needed, whilst hot water bottles ensure that you are warm at night! Please bring your own towels. It is possible to hire towels at £5 per person (one bath and one hand towel). If you would like to hire towels please advise when booking. One small to medium sized dog is welcome.

Changeover day is Friday, and short breaks are available out of high season. A welcome pack greets you with all the basics to start the week: tea and coffee, toilet rolls, washing machine and dishwasher tablets, and a dishcloth, A comprehensive Welcome Book tells you nearly everything you could possibly want to know about the area!

Grange itself has two cafes and is known for its double-arched bridge. Grange was loved by poets such as Wordsworth and Southey, as well as artists such as Turner and Heaton Cooper. You can walk for miles in any direction from the front door. East takes you up Grange Fell (after which the cottage is named) and towards the idyllic hamlet of Watendlath. South penetrates further into the hamlets of Borrowdale, or the great fells of Scafell, Great Gable and Glaramara. West takes you up Castle Crag or High Spy, whilst the pleasures of Derwentwater’s water activities and cruises lie to the North.
The cottage is ten minutes’ drive from the attractions of Keswick, which include the famous Theatre by the Lake, Wildlife Park, GoApe, cinema, Pencil Museum, brewery, distillery and several Activity Centres, as well as shops, restaurants and a Saturday market.

Comfortable And Well Equipped Cottage.

By Katherine C on 22-Apr-2017

We had a great week at Grange Fell Cottage. The weather was kind so we walked every day, some walks were more strenuous than others. The Holiday Cottage was a delight to return to, tired and aching and ready for a large glass of wine. The bottle waiting for us on arrival was very welcome, thank you. The kitchen was well equipped and we even cooked a roast lamb dinner for 6 with all the trimmings on Easter Sunday. All the beds were very comfortable, showers were hot and rooms were spacious. I would definitely recommend this Holiday Cottage to anyone wanting a comfortable week in the Lakes.

Well Equipped, Charming Location And Clean And Tidy.

By Robert J on 24-Feb-2017

We loved our week away in Grange! The Holiday Cottage was terrific in every way. It felt homely and comfortable and lovely and warm.

The only thing I thought of that could be improved was to sharpen the kitchen knives. That's how good it was as that is all I can think of. Thank you.

Beautiful Cottage In A Perfect Location - Couldn't Ask For More!

By Rachel B on 22-Feb-2017

Grange fell Holiday Cottage is one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in! It has everything you need for a perfect week in the lakes. There are some really great walks straight from the Holiday Cottage door and various pubs around to indulge after the hard work (and to dry off if necessary!). Would recommend to everyone!

Lovely Cottage In A Great Location

By Amber M on 19-Nov-2016

We very much enjoyed our stay at Grange Fell cottage. It was clean and well equipped for any need we might have with a few lovely extra touches. The log fire was cosy and the welcome book provided us with lots of information, tips and recommendations regarding the local area. The Holiday Cottage was nicely decorated and even provided games, books, dvds and a tv to entertain us in the evening. The location is perfect as you can access many stunning walks and you are close to the lake. We enjoyed a different kind of tour of the lake and rented a canoe from Portinscale marina. Keswick town is just a few miles away and provides shopping and entertainment; the Saturday market is a must. There is so much to do here and we will definitely be returning to Grange Fell.

Great Cottage In A Delightful Location

By Paul R on 27-Jun-2016

We really liked this cottage. It had everything we needed - it was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The location in Borrowdale is absolutely beautiful with stunning walks from the cottage. It nestles alongside other picturesque cottages, the chapel and a couple of tea and ice-cream shops. Everything was as described and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely Cottage In A Great Location With Stunning Views

By Karen W on 06-Apr-2016

The Holiday Cottage was in an excellent spot with lovely walks from the door. It looked quite remote in the photos but there were lots of passing walkers and a tea shop close by. The Holiday Cottage was clean, very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. We would definitely be happy to stay there again and would highly recommend it

Stunning Location, Lovely House.

By Familyski on 24-Feb-2016

The property is very well equipped and nicely done out. The location is simply stunning, with views from all sides in the very pretty village of grange. We had a wonderful time, with lots of cold but bright, clear and sunny days and this Holiday Cottage is in a great position to do things from the door, or is in very easy reach of some of our favourite North Lakes locations.

Would highly recommend the property.

Winter Break

By Chris B on 10-Feb-2016

The property was warm and welcoming and spotlessly clean. It was well equipped and in a wonderful location. It is much better than it looks on the website. We loved it and look forward to going again.

There are lots of walks on your doorstep and a short drive to pubs and the pretty town of Keswick.

Definitely worth a visit.

Excellent Stay In A Lovely Well Equipped Property

By Jim G on 30-Dec-2015

We spent the Christmas week in the cottage. The Holiday Cottage is in a lovely and pretty setting. The Holiday Cottage is modern inside and comes with an amazing amount of equipment. On 3 floors with especially lovely views from the top bedroom

The Holiday Cottage is in very good order and looks recently refurbished. The kitchen appliances (Bosch) are excellent and the big dining kitchen is a pleasant to cook in and has a large lovely wooden dining table

The Holiday Cottage comes with a decent WiFi connection but mobile phone signal is very poor (no serbuce on Vodafone) so the provision of a dial in only landline is very useful

We did experience a problem with a leak on the upper bedroom Velux. The maintenance company did their best but a new outer seal was needed so it was not fixed before we left

We want to stay here again and would recommend this property without hesitation
