    "Everything good apart from double bed which was as hard as nails!"
    Daniel ‐ 23 Aug 2018
    "Lovely cottage, with lots of features and very good location. We enjoyed our stay, and the river by the house alone was worth the money. White noise therapy, we slept with the windows open."

    "Great location, but no dishwasher or WiFi."

    "Heron View Cottage was really comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen. Loved the larder under the stairs! It was great to sit in the garden and admire the gorgeous view of the hills. Parking right outside was a bonus too. The tv reception wasn't great for some of the channels but there was a DVD player - great to watch a film in the evening after a hard day walking! Towels provided in each of the bedrooms and tea towels provided in the kitchen too. The bed on the top floor was one of the most comfortable I've slept on and the view from the windows of this room was just breath taking. No wifi in the property though which may be an issue for some - my teenage daughter missed it - the rest of us didn't! Location of the cottage meant we could leave the car behind and just walk for the day - perfect."

    "We had a fantastic week at Heron View cottage, 3 adults stayed and it was comfortable with enough space for us all (would be a bit tight for 5 adults). The village amenities were right on our doorstep, as was a lovely 3 mile walk around Grasmere Lake. It's easy to get to all the local attractions. The local bus service runs frequently if needed. We enjoyed a couple of walks with the Lake District park rangers (highly recommended). We also visited Glen Riding - ferry to Aira Falls and walked the lake back, went to Bowness and took the ferry to Ferry House and then walked to Beatrix Potter's house, walked around Rydal and Grasmere areas, visited the cinema at Ambleside (with meal deal at Zeferelli's). All restaurants and pubs we went to were great, in Grasmere we particularly liked the relaxed Goody Blakes. Curators at all the historic sites were friendly and informative.The cottage had mostly all we could ask for. In terms of improvements I would recommend adding fans to the bedrooms (it's too hot at present) and sheets for the beds, we ended up sleeping under the duvet covers and even this was a bit too warm. Nice basic touches would be to supply some black bin liners and basic condiments, herbs and spices in the kitchen. The TV reception is a bit hit and miss, husband ended up watching the World Cup Football in the pub (not that he complained)! There's no wifi, though you can pick up 3G, 4G and BTWifi if you have an account.The directions to the cottage need to be a bit more detailed at the final stage. However, none of that really mattered, we loved the Lake District and the cottage and hope to return one day."

    "Great cottage in a perfect place for exploring the hills or the local attractions."

    "This is our second visit to Heron cottage. Perfect location in the heart of Grasmere, plenty of walks from the doorstop and good location to visit other areas of the lakes."

    "Well equipped comfy cosy cottage in lovely setting."
