Wonderful house in a wonderful valley. Walking starts from the house... no need to use your car as so many circular paths to try.
We loved the house. A mix of traditional comfort with a, slightly scary, state of the art kitchen.
My only slight niggle was the size of the single" bedroom" was very cramped with a tiny narrow bed. I had planned this for a six foot man... it's a child's bed.
Otherwise, totally marvellous house. THANK YOU
The property was very comfortable, we had a lovely stay.
I agree with previous reviews, most properties I have stayed at in this price range would include towels as standard.
The property is in need of a little maintenance particularly the outside, but it was a delightful week and we loved the situation with beautiful walks from the door but Grasmere only a short walk away.
Just what we needed.
This was a wonderful home in an idyllic location. We were close enough to walk to town, but it was peaceful and quiet. The property is exactly as described and was perfect for our family.
The only minor detail I would change would be to have the homeowner provide towels. It was unusual not to have them provided, but a minor issue in comparison to how much we enjoyed our stay, as we were notified to bring towels.
Awesome stay in Little Parrock
We were in this beautiful house for 1 week for business and holiday with perfect weather. It is just beautiful and perfectly located. The equipment is really nice, especially in the kitchen. Always again!
This is a really special place. We were looking for somewhere that could comfortably accommodate a large family gathering (12 of us ranging from age 2 to 70!) that was well away from the crowds yet not so remote that you can't easily access stuff - Little Parrock fitted the bill well. It's a short jaunt up to Helms Crag (don't miss it as the views are fab) and local walks in the area, and a mere 15 minute stroll into Grasmere itself (or 5 minutes on bikes - we brought our own which really allowed us to explore the area well).
All of the rooms are spacious as well as the open plan dining and kitchen. Living room was comfy and having a proper fire place really added to the ambience on cool evenings. Having the rear porch was great too as it meant we didn't have to traipse in muddy boots at the end of the walks.
Unlike some large houses that don't have enough seating in the dining area, this place has ample which allowed our large family to congregate. The kitchen itself is very well kitted out to a high spec which was great as we enjoyed cooking and eating in most evenings.
Being so remote meant that on a clear evening we had lovely views of the stars too.
Only minor downsides were
- the sheep - make sure you shut the gates as otherwise they get into rear lawn area and leave lots of little messages!
- I think we were early in the season so the lawn area hadn't been tidied up more so it wasn't appealing for the kids: bits of overgrowth and rubble in some corners.
We would be more than happy to use this place again.
Beautiful house in a stunning location
We (me, my two brothers and our children) stayed here as we were going to a wedding in Grasmere. We absolutely loved the house and its location. We are hoping to go back soon.
Thanks so much for your review and we're so glad you enjoyed staying at Little Parrock. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Grasmere is probably one of the Lake District's most popular villages thanks to William Wordsworth who lived here at the turn of the 19th Century. The village itself has plenty of shops to provide for your everyday need, and it is well known for its gingerbread and fine food.
Around Grasmere lake there are plenty of gentle walks for those preferring lower ground, or why not take a rowing boat out to visit the island. For a greater challenge, Little Parrock is centrally situated for taking on the craggy peaks of Scafell, Helvellyn, Skiddaw and the Langdale Pikes.
