Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay at Rowan. We have had a fabulous week. The property is outstanding – we cannot fault anything and we are perfectionists! The setting is perfect for walking, enjoying Grasmere and for just relaxing and enjoying the views. A wonderful week. Hope to be able to come back soon.


Your home is lovely and so accommodating. You have really thought of every detail to make your guests’ stay perfect! We love your decorating and the ‘hi-tech’ touches.

We will definitely be back. Thank you.


Superb accommodation, simply could not fault it. Probably the best we have ever stayed in for both location and quality of the interior. The weather was kind to us, cold but mostly dry and even some sunshine allowing us to walk every day and there are some lovely walks. Heron Pike and Great Rigg is a good ridge walk from the village.

Thank you for everything.

Comfortable beds and well equipped.

What a great house!! Exceeded expectations. Really well equipped, thank you so much! Don’t want to go home.


We’ve had the most wonderful week in Grasmere. The house is beautiful and we are so glad we have come back for a second visit.

Lots of super walks especially Alcock Tarn, Easedale Tarn and Grasmere Lake.

Thank you for our stay – we’ve so enjoyed the house and all the mod cons! Hope to come back again soon.

Wonderful accommodation and superb location. The views and scenery are delightful.

Thank you very much for an enjoyable stay.


Our second visit to Rowan in Grasmere has been excellent – what a wonderful location and house in which to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary!! Though the weather was set to be interesting, we had lots of beautiful sunshine and the garden provided the perfect location for relaxing after our days out walking.

Thank you Team Rowan for maintaining the high standards you set last year.

We shall definitely be back for a third visit!!

What a fabulous house Tony & Joseph are ‘Grand Designs’ fanatics and loved the way you have done the house. Perfect week to celebrate mum’s 80th birthday, albeit very wet! Many rainbows – rain one minute, sun the next, then rain again. Could sit and look at the views all day.

Thank you for all the special touches – you thought of everything – pure luxury!

Christine, Tony, Megan & Joseph
