15/11/18 (Air BnB)

“I had a fantastic stay at Victoria’s lovely house in Grasmere. This was easily one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in, with wonderful views, walks and a luxurious spa (fitted with a steam room and Jacuzzi) what more could you want. The house is fitted with everything you could possibly need on your stay, and more! (I.e. Dressing gowns, slippers, towels and a kitchen kitted to the max) The layout and furniture give the place a comfy and cool feel about the place. Victoria kindly made us a wonderful cake which we all thoroughly enjoyed. This is the first time I have used Air BNB and Victoria has definitely set the bar high! Would highly recommend and would love to go back.”

Better I could have imagined (Trip Advisor)

I have back problems which make a good comfortable bed really important when we are staying away from home. I also need a supportive easy chair or sofa and a downstairs wc. Not only was the king sized bed beautifully supportive, there was a choice of comfortable places to sit in the beautifully styled ‘retro’ mid century living – dining area. We have open-plan living at home, and really enjoy being sociable, cooking, a glass of wine etc, so it felt really good to be able to relax in the same way at Grassmere. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is everything any keen cook could need, two fridges and a separate freezer, dishwasher, good pots and crocks etc. I like cooking and watching TV and chatting, and the living area easily seats 8 people in comfort. The master suite downstairs is off the living area and the ensuite is huge and has a warm floor.
There are three bedrooms upstairs, with two further bathrooms. The large bedrooms front and rear have a king sized bed, and two singles, the side bedroom runs the length of the house with an eaves sloping ceiling, with two singles. All is beautifully styled and furnished.
But oh, the spa room! A few steps from the back door and with a hot tub and small steam room – such a haven, and I can imagine how it would be in summer with the doors open to the very pleasant garden, where a barbecue and large outdoor table and chairs would be great for al fresco meals and sunbathing.
Even in February, the garden had a large witch hazel in full bloom, so beautiful, and all around in view is green and tranquil.
There are so many thoughtful touches, radios in many rooms, good wi fi, flowers on arrival, robes and slippers, games to play, books, cds…Victoria has thought of everything, and got it right. It’s full of unnecessary beauty, excellent pictures, rugs, cushions, ornaments, gorgeous furniture etc. So tastefully and harmoniously done.
The house sits on a green next to an (under used ) childrens’ playground, with a large tranquil pond, and when we arrived all the ducks came rushing over to greet us as we parked the car in the drive. We would like to come back for our next stay and invite friends to join us, we want to share it, a most quiet and relaxing place to be, to unwind, or just a heavenly spot for two .

Dear Victoria

Thank you and well done on achieving a relaxing country retreat. We have had an amazing break, one of the best! The spa room has been a family favourite. Isla enjoyed making friends with the neighbours (the ducks) and had lots of fun in the play ground. We love visiting Wells-next-the-Sea, Church Farm in Stowbardolph (lovely home made cakes). Our favourite day was a visit to Great Bircham Wind Mill, the children are able to bake their own bread + take it home. Once again thank you.

John, Andrea + Isla
