    About this property

    An elegantly presented, semi-detached property set in the South Lakeland village of Backbarrow, in the Lake District National Park. This wonderful retreat is a perfect base for a family holiday, a group of friends or couples wishing to enjoy this excellent location with Lake Windermere and the pretty village of Cartmel within a few minutes’ drive. Look forward to spending your wind down time within the sitting room, where you can cosy up in front of a woodburning stove before heading into the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal. Here, you will also find an idyllic conservatory room with an additional dining area, ensuring plenty of space to enjoy a meal discussing your holiday plans. The conservatory leads to an outside space which is ideal for a spot of alfresco dining or relaxing after a busy day exploring the local areas. The interior is completed by two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each benefitting from a bright interior and ample storage for a week-long stay. Just a short distance away is the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where you can hop on board and enjoy a steam railway journey to Lakeside. From Lakeside you can then continue up Lake Windermere on the Windermere Steamer or visit the aquarium, a great idea for a fun day out. This pretty corner of Cumbria is also perfect for exploring the Grizedale Forest which has endless trails and paths through the forest plus a tree top adventure course for the more adventurous. The nearby elegant town of Grange-over-Sands has some excellent shops and tea rooms to enjoy, whilst in Cartmel you will find the ancient priory and the village shop selling the famous Sticky Toffee Puddings, along with the Cartmel races and renowned restaurant L'Enclume, perfect for an evening out. A short walk from the property you will find the Lakeland car museum and Cliffhanger escape rooms. Grimbles Cottage is a lovely cottage to enjoy the beautiful Lake District National Park at any time of the year.

    The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character.

    Mrs Smith ‐ 1 Nov 2019
    "We were also close to Grange Over Sands, a pretty sea side town. ..."
    Mrs Sylvester ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    " A real home from home. The owners have really put thought into making it an easy and enjoyable stay for guests to their house. Beautifully furnished, and housed everything we needed for our stay, right down to games, which we enjoyed playing along with the ones we took ourselves. The neighbours are also very friendly and were very happy to help and give advice on local amenities. The location is a great spot for exploring much of the beautiful lake district. We did day trips to everywhere from Keswick, through to Wast Water, all within about 1hr 15mins drive. Locally there are some great things to do also. Fell Foot Park is a must visit, where you can hire kayaks/paddle boards, or just take a dip in the stunning Lake Windermere. We also had a great time at the Lakeland Motor Museum (walking distance) which we were excited to watch the arrival of some very impressive cars as it was a car club meetup day (Saturday). The Cliffhanger Rooms (also walking distance) was a fab finale to our holiday and we were pleased to make it onto the weekly and monthly leaderboard with our escape time from the bank heist. We shall definitely be returning to experience the Pirate or Pharoah rooms next time :) I would happily stay here again and shall be recommending to friends and family. "
    Mrs Cruickshank ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    " Found it very homely and everything you needed was there. It was very convenient for visiting any part of the Lake District. Would go back again. Mary Cruickshank "
    Mrs Wilcox ‐ 1 Jun 2019
    " Location is good to access many places of interest by car, if you want to walk you have to cross a very busy A road. "
    Ms Harris ‐ 1 May 2019
    " Couple from Hereford "
    Ms Cherrett ‐ 1 May 2019
    " 5 stars "
    Mr Cumming ‐ 1 Apr 2019
    "We had a fabulous stay and would certainly recommend ‘Grimbles’"
    - Mr Dunckley, August 2019
    "Lovely scenery and enjoyed the Lakeland motor museum. Enjoyed the Ravenglass and Erskdale railways. The Beatrix Potter museum and a trip on lake Windermere was great. Muncaster Castle with the birds of prey show is a place you must visit. The cottage was in the centre for loads of things to do. 5 stars."
    - Mrs Stoppard, October 2019
    "The only negative comment would be that there were too many light bulbs in the property needing replaced especially for anyone in the party with impaired vision and guests unable to undertake the task. However, we enjoyed our stay and we were quite comfortable."
